I temporarily work as a creative services assistant/studio manager at a design agency which involves acting as a design manager for the schedules of an office of 90 people including the designers, freelancers, account managers, directors and a production team. I look after the day to day running of projects coming in and out of the office, making sure resource and time is scheduled and used efficiently for each client and budget. My main job is to liaise with all departments so work runs smoothly and everyone is happy with their work load, it’s a very important part of my job to have a good rapport with everyone in the office as well as being organised and professional. I also act as a runner to cover any other needs of the studio, which include photography, studio and styling work. Deadlines and work loads change a lot so have to think quickly on my feet whilst being a clear and effective communicator.
Recently, I was working as a music supervisor for online fashion brand ASOS. This role involved discovering new music to match the video content for ASOS.com . Once the music has been selected, I secure clearances and obtain licenses for the tracks by liaising with the relevant parties, usually record labels, managers and the bands themselves. This job has helped build my contact list within the music, film and production industries whilst working well with deadlines, budgets and specific briefs. I also have to stay up to date and on trend with fashion and music trends as they have to correlate along with the artists that they feature and style of the blog/online content
