Senior Digital Producer
As Senior Digital Producer you will need to engage with all those working on a project and ensure that communication is clear and coordination is smooth. You will serve as the digital delivery expert, actively collaborating with our clients and internal teams for engagements that require digital interactive solutions, always focusing on crafting impactful, creative work that achieves client marketing objectives. At times your role will be to debunk the myths of digital and other times to act as the go to for digital storytelling. This isn’t just about delivering to a scope and budget – we’re looking for passionate digital producers who understand how to use technology to bring ideas to life in the unforgiving live experience space.
Care and attention to detail are critical to the success of our experiences.

In short you will need to lead the digital charge where opportunity is almost limitless and a clear focus on delivering towards our short, medium and long-term strategic goals is core to our success. Bring plenty of energy, an obsessive drive to create great creative work and a fail-first-fail-fast attitude.
