Project Manager


Calling all Project Managers… if you’ve got a background in delivering marketing and digital projects and you’re searching for a new place to call home, we’ve got a lovely opportunity to work across a portfolio of exciting brands in our Bristol office. You’ll be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to getting the job done, predominantly across online channels with particular expertise within digital development, UX and PHP. You’re great at managing multiple projects under pressure, liaising with clients directly and supporting the wider account management team. And you’ll be great to have around!

Why would you want to work here?

McCann Bristol is part of McCann Worldgroup, the world’s largest advertising and communications network. You’ll find us in over 200 cities in 130 countries. The best connected local, global agency in town and we’re actively recruiting for a client facing Project Manager.

We are also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers culture-shaping work for some of the world’s biggest brands.

And to add to the (literal) wheelbarrow full of awards we’ve got including Euro Effies most effective global agency, Cannes Network of the Year, Campaign’s European Integrated Agency of the Year, not the mention McCann Central’s haul of awards in recent years at Cannes Lions Clios, One Show, D&AD, LIAs, Golden Drum & Creative Circle Awards. So creativity really is at the forefront of what we do.

We’re a team of passionate creatives, strategists and marketers from a wide mix of backgrounds. But there’s a lot that unites us – like caring deeply about everything we make. And though our skillsets are wide and our process knowledge is deep, we are all still learning every day.


As a ‘Project Pioneer’ within our client services team, you’ll develop good relationships with the UX and Development team, Creative/Design and Account Management, be client facing, campaign aware, and embrace collaboration with multiple partners and stakeholders both internally and externally. Challenges and unknowns should be welcomed and relished.

Our commitment to equal opportunities
For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
