Daily duties within this role as Operations Assistant were also varied. Managing numerous different responsibilities meant I had to be highly organised, flexibile to change and self-disciplined. I would often be tasked with time sensitive jobs such as arranging all logistical elements for staff, artists and events, which would inevitably lead to me solving problems which arose with complex routings. Other key responsibilities include; -Market Research -Co-ordinate weekly team meetings, keeping details and setting action points for staff -Liaising with social media teams to create and publish interesting content and posts -Liaising with venues, promotors, agents and managers to agree deals -Updating the company website via Wordpress -Event planning and management -Managing promotion teams -Artist Liaison duties at in house events and external events as freelance -General office responsibilities such as calendar management, multiple email accounts etc
