Wolf&Player are seeking an outstanding Digital Project Manager to join our small but highly talented creative studio in London. If you’d like to help a growing studio inspire positive social and environmental change then this is the position for you.


You will be someone with 3–5 years experience managing website projects from planning through design, production and testing to launch. You’ll have cut your teeth in a fast-paced agency environment and be ready to make that next step in your career. A step that will see you take a more responsible and leading role and allow you to further your career development.


You’ll be confident, disturbingly well-organised (and be able to organise everyone else too), have a razor sharp attention to detail and get satisfaction from delivering responsive websites of the highest quality. Experience working with WordPress, front-end developers and web optimisation and tracking software such as Google Analytics is a must.


In return you’ll have the opportunity to play a central leadership role in a passionate and ambitious team (you will be the eighth member of the team) working to inspire action on the climate and social agenda. And we’ll make sure you enjoy the journey as much as we do, because for us work-life balance and wellness and wellbeing are just as important as the achievement of our mission.
