Are you driven by impact? We are hcma, an interdisciplinary design firm driven by the desire to create happier, healthier, more connected communities. The work we do on the Communication Design team reflects this commitment. We design brands that instill trust, inspire confidence, and forge lasting relationships with communities. From a new identity for the Squamish Nation to an award-winning book that helps municipal staff create community buildings with impact.

Our Communication Design team is growing – and we need a Project Manager with the ambition, enthusiasm, and talent to support us. Is that you?
We’re looking for a Project Manager (intermediate to senior) to:

  • Traffic and monitor all projects (internal and external) through the Communication Design studio, including brand identity, wayfinding and signage, print and digital
  • Project-manage a suite of ‘owned’ projects, from briefing through to delivery
  • Be the go-to person managing the day-to-day organization of the Communication Design team

What you will do: Studio operations (roughly 40% of working week)

  • Onboard, schedule, and traffic projects through studio workflow on a day-to-day basis, in close collaboration with Client Lead and Services Lead
  • Own and operate project management software to communicate project timelines to the design team, as well as to monitor progress, scope, and deadlines
  • Track studio capacity and project requirements, responding quickly to shifting priorities and rescheduling resources as relevant
  • Own and implement best-in-class studio systems, tools, and ways of working

Project management (roughly 60% of working week)

  • Act as project manager on a range of briefs, taking responsibility for managing client communication, gathering cost estimates, and delivering on time and to budget
  • Attend client briefings/meetings and gather all necessary information to support the development of the brief and ongoing creative work
  • Collaborate with communication designers, architects, interior designers, and other specialists without the traditional silos

Ideally, you bring:

  • 3+ years of experience in a similar role at a design/advertising agency, or in house
  • A degree in a related field and/or proven experience managing design projects and multiple workstreams
  • An outgoing, positive, and flexible nature: you’re a problem-solver who takes initiative, makes things happen and works well under pressure
  • Excellent organizational, multi-tasking, and communication skills, with strong attention to detail and the ability to work autonomously
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office is required, and working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite is an asset

What we offer

  • A diverse range of briefs working with purpose-driven clients who share hcma’s values
  • The opportunity to help a small, friendly, and ambitious design team grow
  • The stability and resources of an established but forward-thinking firm committed to pushing the social impact of design
  • Colleagues working across design, architecture, social impact, and sustainability
