Head of Production - Technical Production Agency - £70-£80k + £10k bonus

Have you ever judged a book by its cover?

Of course you have.

Appearances can be deceptive.

Just like this agency.

For instance, what would you think if you found Swarfega as the hand wash in a bathroom?

Me, I was a bit worried.

I mean, as a technical production agency, you’re not expecting red carpet and a butler, but I definitely wondered what was in store.

But OMG does this agency surprise and delight.

The job title might fool you as yes of course you will love all the elements that come with production, but here’s the kicker, this is actually a leadership role.

With an agency that’s owned by its employees, run by people who give an actual $hit about the team AND provide a benefits package even an old soak like me was surprised at.

This £12m TO agency with 60 heads has a great reputation in the industry, but the production department has lost its way a bit, they’re feeling a bit unloved and in need of a leader.

That’s you.

You’ll be leading a team of 6 production managers who are client facing and really, really good at what they do but need a bit of support.

You will bring that spark of energy, the wealth of experience and more importantly, you will want to be the person in charge and responsible for things.

You’ll get to stay working in the area you love, whilst also not having to deliver onsite day on day, year on year.

What’s not to love?

In return, you’ll get to do things your way. No seriously.

Ways of working, managing a team, project deliverables, all of this is for you to drive how you see fit.

You’ll grab things with two hands and run things your way.

Oh, but leave the Swarfega, that stuff is seriously good.

If it’s time for you to lead a team and share your knowledge with a wider audience, CLICK APPLY and let’s have a confidential chat. Who knows where it will take you.

Don’t worry if your CV isn’t up to date, we can deal with that later.

Oh, I also run a £1k recommend a friend scheme, so please feel free to share with your connections.
