|Title||Production Manager (Set and Event Design), Essex|
|Salary||£35,000 to £40,000 plus pension|
This theatrical design and production company operates out of a 14,000 sq. ft. workshop near the Essex / Hertfordshire borders, producing work for high profile brands and events. Their work includes sets and props for events, product launches, exhibitions, sampling campaigns and experiential marketing projects such as a 5m high giant lipstick, a billboard sized chocolate bar and a UK tour of experiential mud huts for a leading charity.
They seek a Production Manager to ensure that all their projects are delivered as designed on time and on budget and to enable production to improve and increase capacity through more efficient production processes. This is a pivotal hands-on role managing a hardworking and committed production team. Candidates would ideally come from a proven theatrical or exhibition background and have experience in production management of a broad range of sets, props and modular units, from conception through to execution. Working with an adaptable, flexible, accommodating attitude is a must and understanding the ever-changing demands of high-end brands is essential.
The right candidate should be able to demonstrate experience in exacting manufacturing projects and supervising and motivating a team of workers. You’ll need good computer skills around MS office with AutoCAD skills an advantage but not essential. You’ll be experienced in the planning and executing of projects based around strict budgets and deadlines. As well as having the ability to deliver reports on scheduling and costs you’ll be familiar with the monitoring of product standards and implementation of quality-control programmes.
Excellent attention to detail is a must and having a fork lift licence would be helpful but not essential.
