Full-time, Bristol, £25-35k DOE

Unfold is a design and development agency that helps ambitious start-ups and scale-ups accelerate their business by simplifying their UX and building market-leading websites and digital platforms. Based in the heart of Bristol we’re on the lookout for a Project Manager to join our small, passionate team.

At Unfold, you’ll be responsible for managing our projects and talented digital team to deliver real, measurable impact. Whether that’s smashing booking records for a national self-storage chain, growing a brand-new plant delivery service or bringing private dining experiences to homes across London, you’ll be at the heart of orchestrating our projects.

You’ll be joining at an exciting time of growth with the opportunity to make your mark on the role, laying the foundations for seamless project management across the organisation. We’re a friendly bunch (I know, we would say that, but really) who understand the pressures of everyday life and believe in promoting work-life balance.

Responsibilities:

  • Plan and schedule all the exciting work happening in the studio – ranging from new projects to continuous delivery for our long term clients.
  • Make project delivery effortless and enjoyable for our clients by anticipating and resolving problems as they arise, minimising impact on delivery.
  • Manage project timings, scope and budget – ensuring all stakeholders have complete transparency over the process.
  • Empower our studio team to do their best work by orchestrating work-streams, removing blockers and refining briefs.
  • Communicate with our team and clients to ensure everyone us aligned and working towards agreed objectives. Documenting and circulating key decisions and actions.
  • Alongside our client work, support a number of internal initiatives and projects e.g. our upcoming series of events.

About you:

  • You can manage multiple projects successfully by carefully and expertly balancing the golden triangle of time, quality and profit.
  • You can calmly manage competing deadlines and prioritise the most important issues.
  • You have fantastic interpersonal skills and should be confident presenting at meetings and workshops.
  • You can build strong and supportive relationships with clients and the Unfold team. You have superb communication skills; including the ability to listen and articulate complex ideas clearly.
  • You can closely manage and report on the performance of your projects to leadership (both internally and with clients).
  • You can identify and mitigate against risks, troubleshooting and resolving issues easily where appropriate. You’ll recognise and can escalate problems when required.
  • You relish the opportunity to do great work as part of a small team, where projects have a real impact on our clients and their users.
  • You value both giving and receiving constructive and honest feedback as well as a willingness to drive change and adapt your role as we grow.
  • You’re Bristol based and can attend the office 2-3 days per week to work directly with the team (possibility to become more remote as you settle into the role).

Nice to have / willing to learn:

  • Previous agency experience desirable but not required.
  • Experience with Notion (our project management tool of choice)
  • Experience working with tech and digital projects

Benefits:

  • Flexible working hours / family-friendly working culture
  • MacBook Pro, monitor & all the extras
  • 30 days holiday per year, including bank holidays
  • Half-day Fridays during the summer
  • Learning and personal development opportunities
  • Workplace pension
  • Regular team socials
  • Showers and secure bike parking at the office
  • Climate friendly workforce – member of Ecologi

Our values:

  • Yes before no: our ‘can do’ attitude keeps us moving forwards. If we can’t do it yet, we’ll soon find a way.
  • Deliver success, not just a service: we’re entrepreneurs, just like our clients, so we understand their need to succeed and get results.
  • Integrity comes naturally: if we say we’ll make something happen, it will. We don’t move the goalposts and we stick to our word.
  • Challenge everything: sometimes we’re right and sometimes we’re wrong, but we’ll always bother to ask ‘why?’. We’ll challenge our own and our client’s ideas in pursuit of perfection.
  • Cherry on top: there is nothing we enjoy more than the smile on the client’s face at the end of a project. We go above and beyond to add that touch of magic that really makes the work sparkle.
