If you're a proven Digital Operations Director this is a phenomenal opportunity to join the senior team of one of the region's most innovative and forward thinking agencies.

Never content just to stand still this agency has continuously sought to innovate and evolve its offer and has built an enviable client list, packed full of case studies that exude fresh thinking in the digital space.

With significant growth ambitions they're now looking to bring on board a commercially focused Operations Director to lead their delivery teams; someone who will bring a track record of leading a team of experienced digital project managers and who will focus on bringing operational efficiency to all areas of the agency and to ensure the agency is operating at peak performance in streamlining operational processes and ensuring that projects are delivered to the highest standards, without exceeding resource commitments or impacting commercial goals.

You'll be as comfortable working on small, quick turnaround projects, as you are on large complex projects and will ideally have worked in both Agile and Waterfall environments.

Primary Responsibilities:

- Leading the project delivery team, taking ownership of the evolving workflow planning and management

- Define/evolve the digital operational process

- Lead the agency's operational response to briefs, helping to construct responses in terms of resource requirements, associated costs and availability

- Ensure the quality of operational delivery is of the highest of standards, working in close collaboration with development, UX and creative team leads

To be considered for this exceptional role you'll need to bring a track record of success in a senior operations, project or programme management role in a fast-paced digital agency/studio environment. What's more, you'll have your finger on the pulse when it comes to all aspects of the digital world from large web builds, to innovative digital product development, plus everything in between.

You'll, of course, need a keen commercial sense and the confidence to lead a team, present and report at board level and to develop operational systems/processes that deliver clear commercial impact. It's likely you've come from a project/programme management background and have a proactive, can-do attitude, with a love of working in fast-paced, entrepreneurial environments.

In return, you'll be working in one of the most exciting digital teams in the UK, where there will be significant opportunities to play a pivotal role in achieving and exceeding their ambitions. All within fabulous surroundings, working alongside some of the very best talent in the industry.

Excellent rewards and opportunities await so email your CV over for immediate consideration.
