To work independently and in a team of project managers to manage the production of the work.

We’ll help you get your home office set up, and when you’re in the office, we’ll provide snacks and breakfast - one less thing to worry about in the morning.

We never work weekends and we encourage people to leave on time. We have an employee assistance program to support your mental health, and we’ll give you access to shopping and eating discounts in the West End. Well, who doesn’t love a bargain?
