STUDIO ASSISTANT – permanent part-time [x3 days per week] – school hours [9.30am-2.30pm]
Back in January? We realised we needed a Studio Manager, … except we were worried the role wouldn’t be busy enough / would barely fill full-time hours / that our potential Studio Manager would be – dare we say it – bored.
Fast forward to July 2018, and uh, … the role isn’t just full-time, … but beyond full-time, and so now? Our Studio Manager needs a Studio Assistant, and we were wondering if that might just be you?
You’re ideally someone who’s been in the digital and/or marketing space / knows the processes / is an ab.solute perfectionist, and is also a schtickler for details, and streamlined, organised processes.
You’ll be assisting our Studio Manager, who manages a bunch of digital marketing creatives, and are the stock-standard #typicalcreatives, i.e “messy desks reflecting creative minds” and all that jazz, and whilst we *nail* strategy, … it’s the everything-else-oh-my-GAHD that we need your help with 😉
No, seriously, we’re not even joking, we need you to “Mother Hen” or “Papa Hen” us.
