Project Lead

Posted/Last Revised: 28th Aug, 2018


We are Calder Bateman – a communications agency that asks bigger questions because that’s how we find the best answers. We also like to think we hire the best people – talented, quirky, fun collaborators – because that’s how we create breakthrough work. We are looking for a Project Lead to join our Client Services team.


  • A passionate marketer with at least 2 years of experience, preferably in an agency environment.
  • You have a post-secondary education (a bachelor’s degree or diploma) in marketing/advertising, or related experience.
  • You are able to balance a variety of clients and projects seamlessly, keeping everything (and everyone) organized and on track.
  • A trusted ally to your clients, providing excellent service as a key day-to-day contact.
  • You’re a problem solver and can think on your feet.
  • You may not be “the creative type” but you get excited about a great creative idea.
  • You’ve had experience with a number of different mediums – think broadcast, digital, print, outdoor, video, experiential, social, etc., and can lead the execution of pieces from start to finish.
  • You understand the big picture, but you never forget about the details.
  • Accounting may not have been your favourite course, but you can manage a large, multi-faceted budget to a tee.
  • You work collaboratively and build alliances throughout the company. Teams know they can count on you.


  • Leading the execution of projects from brief through final delivery and evaluation.
  • Developing project approaches including timelines and budgets, then managing them to ensure everything is delivered on time and on budget.
  • Liaising with external partners – research companies, media companies, production partners, etc.
  • Supporting the strategic development of new projects – doing research and contributing your own strategic ideas; developing marketing/communications plans.
  • Supporting new business development.
  • Mentoring/training Project Coordinators.
