Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people’s lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world.

Project Managers handle the day-to-day operations of agency projects, including research, scope development, creative briefing and job execution. They are responsible for base-level client contact, management of status meetings, organizing information shared by and with the client, and ensuring agency procedures are followed.

Project Managers will lead projects from beginning to end while fostering relationships directly with clients and the agency team. The idea is that someone looking at an PM role wants project ownership experience and client engagement development opportunities.

Project Managers serve as agency implementers for achieving the client’s strategic brand and business objectives by working with clients to provide them with guidance and working with the internal team to achieve execution of strategies. They serve a vital role in promoting the integration of cross-functional teams and ensuring seamless delivery of all work to the client. This candidate must be prepared for a fast-paced environment and be comfortable making decisions.VMLY&R is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment.
