A little about you

Want to do great work with great people, advance your career, and still enjoy that crazy idea called work/life balance? Want the opportunity to have a seat at the table of a growing agency?

If you love this incredible world of advertising and marketing, but not the hours, politics or commute associated with the big conglomerates, come join an amazing team at an independent, award-winning Strategy 100 agency. We are a hybrid office, working 2 days in the office and 3 days remote. We have been told we are the greatest agency you’ve never heard of. So, come kick ass with us as we continue to grow and wow clients worldwide.

We are looking for an experienced Producer/Production Manager to join our growing agency.
You are a strong, enthusiastic Integrated Producer who enjoys collaborating with internal and external stakeholders and agency departments. Like us, you are a creative problem solver. And have experience delivering produced work across an integrated marketing mix. No two days are likely the same. You could be working with photographers and video production houses, to printers, CGI artists or logistics partners. You may know some areas well. Others less. But you are undaunted to jump in and learn, handling broad and large projects to small and simple executions with a wink and a smile.

What will you be doing?

  • Attend meetings with agency teams for all production related jobs providing input, flagging concerns, and determining reasonable delivery dates

  • Research and source production partners to ensure best-in-class production output that aligns with creative vision
  • Create and maintain project schedules

  • Help to shape your role, your ongoing growth and that of this area
