This is a multi-faceted role working with a well established studio and creative team where you will manage the day to day capacity and demand across the studio department.

We're looking for a Studio Operations Manager who has a minimum of 5 years agency studio/operations/production management experience. You'll need to have experience managing both print and digital campaigns - increasingly digital plays a key role in this agency and you'll need to understand the workings of digital content creation, motion graphics and animations - particularly how to cost these projects.

Strong organisation skills and attention to detail are essential assets as are excellent communication skills as you will work collaboratively with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.
