A wonderful children’s charity has an opening for a Production Assistant to join their highly ambitious team.

The facts:

This is a specific role within the Fundraising and Marketing department, and you’ll be joining a small, collaborative Creative Services team. It’s a junior position that would be ideal for a second jobber.

You’ll be someone with good print production skills and have ideally worked with merchandise as well as print to paper. The role is fairly admin heavy, as you’ll be managing requests that come through to the online shop and keeping an eye on stock levels, flagging anything that needs to be reproduced. You should be good with figures and ideally also have an interest in sustainability and the environment (with a view to making the production and supply chains more effective).

The role is based in Watford, though the working pattern is fairly flexible. It’s likely that you’ll spend 2 days in Watford, 2 in London and a day working from home.

You’ll be:
– Someone who has previous experience of Production assistance (an internship, or a similar junior position)
– Flexible, organised and happy to work in a busy environment
– A team player with bags of initiative
– Brilliant with quality control

Your superpower:

A proactive, forward thinker
