Studio Manager with project management skills extra-ordinaire! And with experience of working with a reputable work management software, like Traffic Live. Are you an exceptional organiser? This fantastic boutique design and communications agency in Putney, SW London are small but mighty, with a gorgeous and tasteful client list in the luxury sector, and they need a Studio Manager with good project management skills. Print, some digital and social media knowledge would be hugely beneficial, as well as print production knowledge.

Founded over 20 years ago, this wee design agency has always been a reputable design and communication business offering expertise across luxury print to digital communications including web banners, virals, to websites and microsites across a variety of clients in the arts, museum, property and destination branding sectors and other prestigious British brands. Beautiful work, no doubt about it and projects to be proud of.

This design agency is small, only 5 strong, plus freelancers, but busy busy busy so they need a bright, flexible Studio Manager who loves aspects of project management too, with bags of positive energy who will play the vital role of scheduling a range of projects from start to finish, on budget and ensuring a seamless delivery of the highest standard that is expected.

You will also support in managing the studio, working closely with designers and artworkers - so you must therefore be ready to muck in! But in reality, the studio is pretty self-sufficient.

The culture is one of high expectation, but the more you put in, the more you get out - it really is a great opportunity to work across a range of clients, both large and small.

Key skills and requirements:

+ Proven experience in a project management or studio management role within a design or creative agency

+ Exceptional organiser and scheduler, who know how a project needs to be organised

+ Able to manage budgets, timings etc

+ Really solid knowledge of print and production, and any digital or social media is a bonus

+ Excellent written and verbal communication skills - clients must love you!

+ Able to work under own initiative and remain calm under pressure

+ Someone who thrives in a smaller team, where you will be the lynchpin, the glue, the 'mother'

The studio is based by the river in Putney, great walks, and a short walk from 2 overground stations nearby. There is excellent high stree shopping nearby too, lovely pubs and cafes.
