Are you looking for an exciting new challenge?  Do you want variety in your work?  Interested in working with a diverse range of companies and technologies?

Project Neon are expanding.  To support this, we are looking for a pro-active and driven Communications Manager to work as part of our fast-paced communications team.

Our approach to marketing and communications differs from others in town.  Believing that consistency is the key to brand awareness, we bring a holistic and strategic approach to companies in the Oil and Gas sector.

Rather than offering clients just a single piece of the puzzle, we work in partnership with our clients, operating as an extension to their business and bringing them continuous access to a full-service marketing and communications team.  From strategy, design, content, media relations and social media, to event planning and web development, our multi-disciplinary team takes care of it.

This strategy is already getting great results for clients, who now have a consistent and professional approach to their marketing and communications activity.  With increasing client visibility in the marketplace both locally and internationally, we are proud to be delivering results. This means we also have the opportunity to grow, so we are expanding our team to meet increasing interest.
