STUDIO MANAGER, office impresario and client charmer

what we need...

A bright, brilliant, highly organized person who thrives off helping others and making things work. You must have experience and know the ins and outs of office management so you can own the position. A quick learner who can think on your own and make suggestions for new ways to do things. You must be able to keep us on task, appreciate a witty thought as much as a dorky one and giggle with us when the time fits.

As you might expect we are looking for excellent time management skills, the ability to multi-task and prioritize work, excellent written and verbal communication skills, attention to detail (yes we will catch your spelling error so triple check) and problem solving skills.
