Senior Producer (Digital/Film) - Boutique Digital Agency – Central London – c£55k + with superb benefits
Dynamic, central London boutique digital agency seeks a Senior Producer with film and digital production experience to work across the agency’s client base.
The agency is a brand building agency with a specialism in digital and social media. They are small (30 talented, t-shaped, curious people), perfectly formed and pack a big punch.
Through their work they deliver direct business impact today for long-term brand equity for tomorrow. This ability to understand what’s important to the client now, but also have the discipline to guide the brand into the future, is what their clients love about them.
Their work has picked up a number of prestigious awards already as well as recognition in the press and with their peers (yet they feel like they are still only in second gear).
They are very smart, hardworking and committed to a new phase of growth within the agency that will take them from hidden gem to the agency clients want to work with and talent want to work in.
As part of their growth, the agency are bolstering their production capabilities. Working closely with the Client Service, Planning and Creative teams, the Senior Producer will be responsible for the accurate scoping and successful delivery of their projects on time, within budget and at the highest quality.
The Senior Producer Role
The Senior Producer will own delivery across one or more clients, responsible for producing timing plans and cost estimates, and safely shepherding each project through production to final deployment.
When appropriate, the agency bring in third parties to support execution; the Senior Producer will work closely with Creative to identify the right partner and then oversee the relationship, putting documentation and quality processes in place to ensure a smooth working partnership.
The ideal Senior Producer already knows that they can work well under pressure and has a history of finding creative solutions to unforeseen circumstances. An excellent communicator both internally and with the most senior clients, the Senior Producer must exude a positive, calm and professional manner at all times.
The Senior Producer may be asked to oversee the work of freelance or more junior producers who join the team. An experienced professional, the candidate will be able to take direction, but will be comfortable working autonomously most of the time.
Exceptional attention to detail should go without saying, but a mild obsession with meticulous records and reporting won’t go astray.
The ability to perform at least one party trick would be a bonus!
