Location Prahran, Australia

Job Type Full-time

Description

Want an exceptional leadership role in a thriving creative agency without the politics? As the Creative Services Manager you will play a pivotal role in leading and managing the day-to-day operations of our rapidly growing, tight-knit team. You understand that the secret to getting sh!t done is razor sharp work-flow planning, switched on financial management and being the ultimate team whisper. Itâs you that keeps Saltree at the top of client Christmas card lists.

Answering directly to the Executive Creative Director, day-to-day your role involves planning & managing the agencyâs overall workflow schedule; ensuring on-time delivery and profitability of each project; project management (aka ensuring the team has what they need to get the job done); updating and managing online schedules; developing estimations plus quality control of artwork and proof-reading.

Whilst this is a full-time role, we are open to offering flexible hours. This role is ideal for someone who is yearning for the agency buzz without the sweat-shop hours and stress.

If you are ready to step up, and your organisational skill borderline OCD, then we would love to hear from you.
