More moves on the job front this week, with another raft of opportunities hitting the Prolific North job board.

But before we come to those, a quick update on some job-related news on the site over the past few days.

BJL announced it would be setting up a London office with a seven-strong staff – two of whom have moved south from the agency’s Manchester HQ.

Hale-based Rumpus has brought in three new employees to increase the strength of its B2B offering, while Leeds agency Propaganda has hired five new staff in response following the new business it won in late 2013.

Former Manchester Evening News journalist Simon Donohue, meanwhile, has decided to move into PR after a year spent freelancing. He’s taken up a senior consultant position with Judge & Howard.

Worth also mentioning the latest news regarding Manchester City Council’s £10million drama production hub. To be known as The Space Project, it is scheduled to open in May with up to 500 job opportunities.

As for the Prolific North job board this week, PR agency Kenyon Fraser – which has offices in Liverpool and Leeds – is after a “senior” person to become its new PR and Communications Account Director. A mix of in-house and agency experience is preferable for interested candidates.

PHD Manchester, who have recently picked up a juicy brief from Arriva, is after a Media Planner to take responsibility for all press and digital media plans.

Elsewhere, there’s an opportunity for a Brand Marketing Manager managing a number of major brands’ consumer ecommerce sites. A broad understanding of all marketing channels is important, although “excellent digital knowledge” is a must.

Still in the ecommerce field, a “major retail business” has a six-month opportunity for an Interim Business Analyst. You’ll need to be ready to go – the company will want you to start within a couple of weeks – but it will pay you up to £360 a pay for the trouble.

Are you a senior account manager working in PR? Beattie Communications has a “fantastic” Account Director opportunity that could be for you. Ideally you’ll have a B2B background, but it’s not essential.

Account executives looking for the next step could be attracted by the role of Senior Account Executive that’s on offer within the offline advertising department of One Marketing Communications. The same agency is also looking for a Senior Account Manager.

Finally, there’s an opening as a Marketing Manager with a “successful consumer products business” in south Manchester. Someone with a strong understanding of retail trade and consumer marketing is required.
