    1. Project Plan
    2. Staffing Plan
    3. Briefs
    4. Budget Tracking

  • Monitor and track deliverables throughout all phases of a project
  • Highlight and communicate action items
  • Oversee launches with coordination between creative and JESS3 community manager with support in case study process
  • Lead and execute against CEO’s vision for expanding lines to an actionable and achievable level

  • Enforce and communicate deadlines both internally and externally through production schedule, milestones and project status reports
  • Be an active player in ensuring team member responsiveness among all staffed against a project (e.g., creative director, strategists, contractors, etc.)
  • Exude proactive attitude and behavior (e.g., seek to fill project gap, create new processes, identify areas for streamlining and efficiencies)
  • Flag out-of-scope requests through appropriate channels
  • Implement creative and proactive thinking that anticipates, addresses and shines lights on both opportunities and challenges
  • Design literacy a plus
  • Facilitate project meetings
  • Provide support in vendor management on projects (e.g., printing and prop needs)
  • Help facilitate relationships across disciplines through introductions and keeping folks “plugged in” from offices outside of LA (vs. just working with their home base team)

  • Experience working with executive and creative teams
  • Experience leading teams and managing team members
  • Experience working and leading projects independently
  • Experience in both digital and print production
