We are on the lookout for a Project Manager, who can offer inspiring leadership to our well-established team.

CTI offers the opportunity to work collaboratively on challenging projects, delivering high-quality solutions for an impressive range of clients. What all of our clients share is an expectation of quality, so our project managers are vital to ensuring that projects are delivered on time and within budget. As our company grows and our client base expands, we are looking for new members to join our experienced and dynamic team.  

As a Project Manager, you will be tasked with managing key client projects, to ensure the delivery of digital services, products and experiences within agreed timescales, budgets and scope. It’s important that you are capable of communicating across various disciplines, such as design, web development and marketing, as you then oversee the delivery of a quality solution.

We work with an agile approach, but don’t worry, CTI will provide full training on our agile approach, quality management and wider working practices.
