Project and Account Manager (Houston)
Texas, Houston

Jillian O’Neill Collection is hiring a contracted, part project and account manager.

-This role is a mixture of remote and in person (when it is safe to do so) in Houston (approx once a week eventually in person)

-Hours starting at 20 hours a month (with room to grow)

-Contractor position

-Pay is competitive (we will ask what your desired compensation range is in the application)

Jillian O’Neill has been creating furniture for her private clients for over a decade. Her signature pieces are available to purchase with custom specifications. The Collection does mainly B2B furniture orders with interior designers that we partner with at a lower volume due to its extremely high-end, custom and detailed nature. While product is slowed and detailed, the backend of the company is fast paced to ensure high touch relationships and timely response times to interior design partners. We believe in having a collaborative and creative work environment and value our relationships with all of our client partners and team partners! We want all team members to have a voice.

The Project/Account manager keeps track of purchase orders and the status of each furniture production project and communicates weekly with the manufacturer as well as the Creative Director/ CEO. They are responsible for projects being completed correctly and on time and communicating what is still pending to the responsible parties. They also can communicate with clients that we’ve received their emails and ping the Creative Director to respond if needed. The PM can create additional needed systems in spreadsheets or asana to keep track of the status of each furniture piece that is in production. This is a new position at the company– and there are up to around 20 pieces in production at once for this role to manage (with room to grow).
