Job description

Jupiter, Cape Town is looking for a unique kind of animal:

A mid-weight project-or account manager with a solid record of project management experience, that has the drive, discipline, and aspiration to be the glue between creative teams (internal and external), production teams and the client.

Part of 2017 restructuring saw Jupiter replace traditional account service staff with pairings of creative directors and strategists to manage client relationships, with the strong support of the project manager. 

Therefore, you will play an incredibly critical role within the agency and be integrated into all areas of the business.

First and foremost, you will be managing the workflow of fast-paced BLT projects from start to finish, therefore experience in working with Retail and FMCG clients is of advantage. You need to have a good eye for detail, be highly solution-driven, proactive, flexible, resilient and be able to cope in high-pressure situations. 

We are also looking for someone who is able to drive business profitability and growth. You will be assisting our client leads in unlocking business opportunities, delivering innovative and ambitious solutions.
