Project Manager



NJI is a wildly creative and strategically disciplined agency with offices in London, Washington, D.C., and Singapore. We work seamlessly across teams and time zones to align and deliver for our clients.

We are looking to spot a “nessie” of a project manager, rarely seen but lives up to the hype, to join our office in Alexandria, Virginia. It will be second nature for the ideal candidate to anticipate client needs, read between the lines, and develop strong working relationships across the agency. Professional and efficient, the right candidate will be a self-starter that can manage multiple tasks simultaneously across a varied account portfolio.

You must be a skilled project manager with the ability to work with strategic, creative, and technical leads to ensure the successful completion of complex projects on deadline. Honed intuition sets great PMs apart by demonstrating a level of EQ alongside their technical knowledge and project management skills. They embody a team-centric ethos of always going the extra mile to support a colleague or client.

Our PMs get their hands dirty working directly on deliverables of all shapes and sizes. The right candidate will balance knowing how to  lead or support strategy-oriented tasks and work with precision and ease across teams. This role maintains and supports important client relationships, ensures the highest quality of deliverables, and brings flexibility and dedication to their work every day.

You must have a real world experience successfully managing projects with complex data/content inputs, as well as multifaceted projects with extensive design deliverables. An eagle eye for process and proofing, the best candidate will be a wizard with words, grammar, timelines, and client communications.
