Job Description

Almost every project we do is different, and we’re looking for a Production Assistant who is happy to be involved in every step of the process and keen to learn. The role involves working closely with our three in-house producers to deliver video, digital and installation projects, as well as with the creative team to research for new briefs and pitches.

The role also includes many ad hoc company admin and office management tasks, so a flexible and proactive ‘can do’ attitude is essential. Rest assured, we all share tea and coffee making duties! The right candidate will blend in with our friendly and collaborative company culture.

From the get-go, you should be confident with carrying out the following tasks with minimal supervision:

Production

  • Assisting with all aspects of pre-production (paperwork, locations, talent, legals, licensing, travel, accommodation and catering booking, sourcing crew and kit, booking suppliers)
  • Assisting on shoots / at live events (running, talent chaperoning)
  • Assisting in post-production (media logging, data and file management and back-up)

Pitching

  • Research for briefs
  • Sourcing example locations, talent, and references
  • Contributing creative ideas

Helping you on your way to becoming a Producer we will also train you up to carry out duties which might be new to you:

  • Creating and maintaining project budgets and timelines
  • Client/account management
  • QA testing and asset management for digital projects
  • Testing for installation/experiential projects
