Exec Producer

Your reason for being here…

Your purpose here at DRPG is to create a client experience like no other, knowing those who encounter the work we produce will find it unforgettable for all the right reasons.

The way you roll…

A self-motivated team player, you enjoy interacting with others with a knack for giving direction without dictating. This comes from your ability to be a great listener and an even greater communicator thanks to your jaw-dropping ability to understand people and environments, adjusting your behaviour accordingly.

Positivity is a power of yours that leaves on-lookers envious because challenging situations are a breeze and your multi-tasking skills could get you far on a talent show. You’re always questioning yourself and aiming for the best result, with no qualms about explaining your thought process. That’s why you’re always paying attention to those little details so that everything you do matches those high standards. We love your determination!

You’re an organisational superstar, applying that incredible knack for planning to each project. With that shiny gold metaphorical baton in your hand, you let everyone know when and at what level to play their instruments.

You know what to do from the get-go, and you’re not only a confidence connoisseur, but a master job juggler (wow!) and always have your logic cap on to add to that stylish excellence of yours.

You’re a whizz at ensuring compliance across every element, with that meticulous attention to detail you have. Our philosophy here at DRPG is ‘anything’s possible’, so you will need to be onboard with this, going above and beyond.

Get to know us…

We’re one of the most unexpectedly all-round capable communications agencies that’s been on the go for years – ever since our head honcho set up shop in a shed back in 1980, in fact.

Since then, we’ve made it our mission to make anything possible for our many and varied clients, putting our creative flair into delivering strategic communication campaigns, digital solutions, film and videos, events, exhibitions, and a whole lot more in between. We’ve grown a lot, but we’ve kept everything that made us great, back from the very day we first started out. Our global HQ and largest studios are smack bang in the middle of the UK and well worth a visit to see for yourself!

Hang on, there’s more…

The account team are based in the London, Midlands and Manchester. There will be times when you’ll need to work from our other offices and undertake other related commercial duties both in the UK. Flexibility is key!

We’re a friendly team. We really welcome anyone who wants to become part of a brilliant company. If you’re passionate with a cracking drive to deliver on our ‘anything’s possible’ mindset, we’d love to hear from you!
