Project / Production Manager

Your reason for being here…  

Everyone here at DRPG has a purpose and yours is to ultimately wow audiences with the amazing content we deliver by ensuring the team is running smoothly and projects are always on time and on budget. 

The way you roll… 

You are dynamic and capable; the kind of person who can remain calm under pressure and take a project from start to finish with ease. You are not ruffled by wrangling clients (technical term) and co-ordinating several projects at once.  Your innate love of production makes you a practical problem solver with a super imagination. 

You thrive in a fast-paced environment and work well with your colleagues to get the job done. With that meticulous attention to detail and ability to solve any problem that comes your way with a smile, you’ll have no problem acting on our ‘Anything’s Possible’ philosophy here at DRPG.

  • Scheduling shoots, post-production and animation 
  • Clearly communicating specific actions and requirements to internal and external clients, including the production/ preparation and supply of relevant supporting information and documentation 
  • Keeping accurate and precise records of communication, including setting agendas, meeting minutes with actions, email communication and other suitable information specific to clients and/ or projects 
  • Working effectively with clients, communicating in a diplomatic way to build, develop and grow relationships with potential and existing clients 
  • Actively listening to clients and understanding key messages, strategy and ways of working to influence production support, and preparation for any client business impact 
  • Undertaking full reconciliation reporting, POs and invoicing 

 What’s in your toolbox… 

  • Ideally experience within an agency-based environment 
  • Excellent rapport building, active listening and communication skills all backed up and supported by proven relationships 
  • Experience of financial and budget management 
  • Impressive ability to problem solve and rectify issues before they snowball 
  • Incredible confidence when it comes to negotiating with suppliers (personnel and resource) 
  • Experience of working in fast-moving and client-focused businesses 
  • Experience in developing and growing client relationships 
  • Knowledge of production insurance and health and safety, plus the ability to create call sheets and risk assessments 

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 role will be based primarily in Hartlebury but there will be times when you’ll need to work from our other offices and undertake other related commercial duties both in the UK and overseas. Flexibility is key!  

We’re a friendly team. We really, 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! 

DRPG is an equal opportunities employer. We're committed to building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace where everyone can be their best, so if you're excited about this role, we would love to hear from you and look forward to receiving your application.
