We're looking for a Studio Coordinator (part time) December 12, 2019 13:04 317 Comments
Studio Co-ordinator – circa 15 hours per week.
London Craft Club hosts 5-7 craft workshops per week in our studio just of Holloway Road. They are premium experiences, mainly aimed at grownups. This year we will be expanding to offer premium children and tween workshops.
In addition, Craft Work London offers craft entertainment activities to businesses all over the UK. We deliver equipment and materials and send staff to these events.
We are looking for a tidy, efficient and detail orientated person to coordinate the stock and equipment in our studio and off-site, and help our businesses grow over 2020.
Please note – this is NOT a job that involves doing craft or creating workshops. An interest in craft would help but is not essential.
Who would this suit?
Someone who plans ahead, is really organised and loves to keep everything super neat and tidy. You’ll be a good team worker – the whole team is part-time so you need to be really good at sharing information and making sure your systems work for everyone in the team. Finally – you’ll be able to cope when things don’t go to plan. Our clients make last minute bookings and change their minds, and there is always an element of unpredictability involved with working on events. You’ll need to enjoy solving problems when they arise and coming through for the team.
London Craft Club - Studio Coordinator
Make sure all our events are fully stocked and styled
- Keep the studio looking its best for all events
- Order and prepare the materials, props, printouts and follow up info for all workshops and events
- Keep the materials spend within the budget and record the amount spent
- Make sure the studio is set up and ready for teachers to come in every day, including managing access to the studio at evenings and weekends
- Arrange for delivery of materials to and from off-site events.
This is a new role, so will be initially a freelance role. You’ll need to invoice us monthly, and manage your own tax issues, and time off for any reason (including illness and holiday) is unpaid. After 2 months we will review the role and if there is a) still a need for it and b) your are meeting your targets, we will give you the option to become a permanent employee
The rate is £12 per hour, and would remain the same if changed to PAYE but in addition you would recieve statutory benefits such as sick pay. This will be open to review after year.
Hours and Locations
The majority of the role will take place at our studio in Highbury. Very occasional days will be at the Big Yellow, 401 High Street, East Finchley N2 0HS.
We estimate this will need about 10-15 hours a week. There are no set hours so you can choose how you wish to meet the targets, however you cannot exceed 15 hours without discussion with your manager. There is a laptop in the office for you to use, and if you would like to do some of the admin from home that is fine as long as you have your own computer and are happy to set up your own access to our online filing etc.
At busy periods, we may ask you to work more hours, or to supervise studio assistants in order to meet demand. This will always be in discussion with you.
Your success will be judged by the end result of your work – as long as you do you best by the others in the team we don’t mind how you do this job, and much of it will be unsupervised. You can make your own systems and methods, and we are always open to ideas as to how to do things better for the whole team.
Please send a copy of your CV and a short letter explaining why you would be suitable for this job by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications in any other format will not be accepted.
Deadline is 18th December, interviews will be in person at our studio in Holloway Road week commencing 6th January 2020.
