Dennis is looking for a Production Assistant on an initial 12 month fixed term contract. Your role is to ensure the print brands and digital file traffic you are responsible for are produced and sent on time working to agreed schedules and to the correct specifications.
This is an exciting opportunity to work within a friendly, flourishing business and get a strong insight into the fast-paced media industry.
You'll manage others' time, as well as your own, chasing all advertising material from sales and clients to ensure deadlines are met. Always professional, courteous and accountable, you'll keep a complete record of client liaising.
Amongst other external responsibilities, you'll ensure all material is checked to the correct specification, updated carefully when necessary, and sent to the printers on time with accurate and exact instructions.
Internally, you'll work with the advertising sales and editorial teams to make sure your flatplan is on point. You'll maintain the highest production standards and as the technical resource for production queries from your sales team you will develop a brilliant understanding of the complete production process, including all aspects of the digital workflow.
You're a natural problem solver with exemplary organisational and communication skills. You'll be confident liaising with colleagues, clients and external suppliers. Time management and prioritisation will come naturally to you, and you'll always be calm under pressure.
You'll be used to a deadline driven working environment with a razor-sharp attention to detail. Most importantly, you need to be lively and personable, with a real 'can do' attitude with a keen interest in the media and publishing industry.
