Be Groundbreaking.

We’re on the hunt for a talented Digital Project Manager to join our incredible team.

This role offers hybrid working arrangements, allowing you to work from our central Leeds office and from home (within flexible hours).


There is now a unique opportunity for someone to join Team Zeal in Leeds as a Digital Project Manager. Typical day-to-day responsibilities include:

  • Planning web, mobile and application development projects for clients. This will involve gathering requirements and liaising with various team members to ensure we have everything we need to do the best job we can. It will mean providing regular updates to the client to ensure they are fully informed at all stages as to what is happening and when – and working with our team to ensure deadlines are achieved.
  • Working with the Account Managers to support client relationships and communicating with clients on a regular basis: through email, phone and running face-to-face meetings.  
  • Development Team Resource Management – using planning platforms to plan and manage the development team’s workload in Sprints and run Sprint Planning Meetings to ensure both the Client Services Team and Development Team are all aligned on expectations for the upcoming sprints.
  • Managing internal Quality Assurance and User Acceptance Testing processes. This will involve establishing plans to ensure all output has been put through comprehensive testing – and getting directly involved with identifying and logging issues for the Development Team to remedy.          
  • Scoping – from gathering requirements, writing user stories and researching potential solutions, the role will be hands-on in leading client briefs to identify the most feasible technical solution to meet their objectives.
  • Helping to improve our internal processes so our design and development efforts remain efficient and effective.

The Person

We’re looking for a Digital Project Manager who wants to be part of a collaborate team and get stuck in with both producing great work and enhancing our offering to clients.

We’re looking for:

  • Excellent communication and organisation skills. We’re looking for someone who is charismatic, out-going, friendly and approachable.
  • A good appreciation for how web development projects work. We’re not looking for a coder, but rather someone who can take the reins of a project, keep it organised and communicate with involved stakeholders to bring everything together.
  • Experience working within an AGILE-driven project would be a bonus but not essential. Likewise, someone who has experience of using tools such as Monday, Trello, or JIRA for running software development projects could be advantageous.
  • Experience in training clients on using their site once built and creating easy to follow ‘How-to’ documentation or training guidelines to facilitate clients and internal stakeholders in understanding new functionalities once developed.
  • An understanding of how a digital or creative agency works – this will mean some founding knowledge of SEO, PPC, affiliates, web development, creative design, social media and content marketing.
  • Previous experience with managing clients and web build or iterative development projects.
  • Be able to think commercially and offer excellent service to Zeal’s clients.
