About the role

Description
Reporting to the APAC CoE Programme Management Lead, you will be responsible for the project management of the delivery of a Statement of Work (SoW) for a given category-related project. You will work closely with the creatives in CoE APAC and its hubs plus the approved production partners to ensure that CoE APAC are adequately resourced to deliver high-quality materials on time and to budget through the appropriate levels of governance (Commercial reviews, Creative reviews and Legal reviews).
You will work within resource and budget targets set by the Korea team and will report upon deviations to an agreed SoW to the APAC Programme Management Lead and Planning & Operations Director where appropriate.

You will work closely with the Korea commercial teams and APAC CoE creative teams to ensure they have a full picture of the projects upon briefing and to ensure that the creative work is in line with the project strategy.

And while you’ll be a part of APAC CoE, you’ll also need to be able to work independently without supervision, ensuring your briefing work is clear to all parties and the creatives will deliver on time. In short, you should be creatively sympathetic but commercially astute with an ability to balance both for the good of a project.
