As a Project Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring our learning projects deliver revenue for Brightwave against team and individual targets.

  • actively manage clients so that project time, budget and quality targets are met whilst building client trust and satisfaction.
  • adhere to Brightwave quality procedures and project controls and will plan, monitor and control project budgets.
  • be able to travel (mainly within the UK) as required to meet the demands of the role.

Skills / Experience:


  • a professional, dynamic and positive attitude.
  • excellent organisational skills and a keen eye for detail.
  • good commercial awareness and ability to understand a project's business drivers.
  • able to work confidently with both internal and external stakeholders in order to secure optimal outcomes for the business.
  • demonstrable experience in a co-ordination or junior project management role and a proven track record of managing e-learning or multi-media projects up to £50k.
  • a creative approach to multimedia/online development and production and a broad technical understanding of technologies used in multimedia development.
  • experience of working in a digital agency.
  • genuine and enthusiastic interest in technology-based learning and performance support.
  • understanding of waterfall, agile and hybrid project management methodologies and the ability to apply them effectively.


  • educated to degree level.
  • project management qualifications are an advantage but not essential.
  • understanding of the e-learning design and scriptwriting process.

Additional Details

Working at Brightwave includes the following advantages:

  • Competitive salaries and benefits
  • Real opportunities to develop your career
  • A company that values innovation and creativity
