Studio Manager Position at Boheem

You may already know that after 2 years, Jane is moving on to greener pastures (literally: she's heading north to live on a farm..!) and so we'll soon be (re)opening the position of studio manager here at Boheem.

We will be interviewing through March and planning for a 3rd May 2010 start date.

We are a small, happy team of girls working in Surry Hills with really great clients from a variety of industries. We're thinking this would be a permanent part-time or full-time role. It's a perfect opportunity for someone with a creative edge and a background in management wanting to work in a place where they'll feel busy and important – because that's indeed what they'll be!

We're looking for someone mature, organised and level-headed who can show initiative to 'get things done'. This position is client facing and involves budgeting, scheduling and reporting for individual clients. They will be required to foster client relationships, as well as having input into longer term marketing projects. Often the role is heavily account handling focussed.

Here's a list of the sorts of day-to-day tasks a studio manager here undertakes:

Project Management
• Meeting / corresponding with clients to collect all briefing information/content for projects
• Organising content and preparing brief/ job bag for use in the studio
• All quoting including printers & other suppliers
• Supplying quotes to clients and following up
• Liaising with clients on projects, ie sending initial concepts pdfs, seeking feedback, managing amendments which may include briefing session with designers or marking up draft PDF's
• Time management - tracking jobs to ensure they are completed on time and that extensive changes are managed & billed, keeping the client informed at all times where a job is at
• Expectation management for the Studio and clients - ensure it is aligned
• Follow-ups: checking that clients are happy & satisfied with processes & final product, addressing any issues raised
• Keeping Filemaker up-to-date and directing Monday morning WIPs
• Helping clients with all their needs & making them feel special

Supplier Management
• Meeting with printers
• Print sample checking and sending via courier
• Sourcing suppliers for unusual requirements ie special envelopes

Studio Management
• Creation/development of studio work systems
• Assistance with Boheem marketing
• Stationery and post office purchases
• Invoicing
