We’re hiring! Looking for organised assistant for social video production company

· Blog

Hunting With Pixels is growing! We started our Melbourne office 2.5 years ago and are currently looking for an organised, responsible and people oriented person to help create a brilliant experience for our clients, our collaborators and our team.

Here’s the job description

Hunting With Pixels is looking for an organised, disciplined, mature, experienced person who can follow/improve our business processes and manage client queries.

This is a new position being created, there’s no real blueprint to follow so broad scope to make it your own.

About Us

Hunting with Pixels is a small, boutique video production company that specialises in authentic and engaging content. We operate in Melbourne and Sydney. This role if for our Melbourne office, which is located in Fairfield.

We work with larger brands like TEDx, ING, and GE, but our main focus is on established small businesses and entrepreneurs – we love people and their stories and we help them grow their brands with beautiful video and engaging social media content.


What we’re looking for

We require someone part time, everyday, so they can develop a broad understanding of all aspects of the day to day. We need you to have consistent contact with all clients, daily if necessary, and be available to assist the Creative Director in managing day to day business ongoings.

This role (and salary) will definitely grow in scope (and hours) as your understanding of the business develops.

Our main requirement is that you support Robert, our Creative Director. He gets extremely busy and by taking care of the administrative tasks and client requests you will be helping him to keep his  focus on the creative and strategic side of things.

You will be the first port of call for our clients: ensuring the phone calls/emails are answered; problems are solved; requests fulfilled to help keep projects moving along and clients kept happy.

And whilst you don’t need to be managing projects, you do need to understand what projects we have on and the type of tasks that need to happen in relation to those projects.

The Offer

Flexible part time: 15hrs over 5 days/wk initially, but we expect to scale up quite quickly to 20+hrs once you are trained and confident in the role. Can occasionally be remote by negotiation: we’ve got small kids ourselves so we can want make sure this job would suit people with children too.

Pro rata salary will be commensurate with your skills and experience.

Start four week trial after 25th June 2018

About you

We’re after someone who can, for example, follow and refine processes (eg: time tracking); suggest improvements to current workflows, problem solve.

Sometimes you might be on your own in the office and will have to have the confidence to answer your own questions, research a solution or take the initiative to ensure the task can be completed.

You need to be entrepreneurial. We’re a small business, so you need to be able to solve problems and come up with ideas for improving things. This is not a role for a minion or an order taker. We’re looking for someone who’s interested in contributing ideas.

You have to be a people person. The role involves dealing with clients varying from small not for profits to CEOs of large corporates.

Prior experience as an office manager, project manager or PA in a small to medium sized business would be ideal. This is a role for someone who enjoys structure and organising. We don’t expect you to know everything, just be interested in learning.

This is not a role for aspiring directors or creatives; if you want to do that work get in touch with us regarding our freelance opportunities.

We use a variety of software: Asana, Evernote, Dropbox, Excel, etc. We don’t expect you to know all of these platforms, but you must be very comfortable around the Apple ecosystem, cloud based software and CRMs.

It would be great if you have affinity with social media – LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. Being able to write posts would would be great too.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Email me to apply or ask any questions!
