Junior Project Manager at Buff Motion

We’re Buff - a motion design studio in the centre of Brighton making animated video for brands. We're on the lookout for a passionate and diligent aspiring Project Manager to join our growing team.

We’re looking for a confident, organised and proactive person who thrives in a fast-paced, creative environment. Responsibilities include managing animation projects from initial conception to final delivery; managing workflows, schedules and budgets, as well as guiding our clients through the production process. The role will also support the Studio Director with other administrative duties to assist in the smooth running of the studio.

As this is a client-facing role, the ability to build strong relationships and communicate effectively is absolutely essential. Direct experience of either project management or animation specifically is not required – we’re looking for someone with the right personality and competencies that we can coach and develop into the role.

This is an ideal position for someone with a year’s experience working in a professional, client-facing, deadline-driven environment looking to progress quickly within creative project management. Recent graduates are also welcome to apply.

Requirements for the role:

- Clear communicator with great listening skills
- Excellent command of spoken and written English
- Outstanding attention to detail
- Good numeracy skills
- Strong time management and the confidence to work autonomously
- Proficient user of Microsoft Office package, preferably on Mac
- Passion for design & animation and an enthusiasm for the studio’s output

Nice-to-haves, but not essential:

- Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite
- Basic understanding of animation workflows
- Experience working in a creative studio
