In Brief

In a team of very busy agency bodies we are all focused on our work and need some help around the office. We’ve got big plans to grow but there is something missing. We know that with the right person supporting our team we can drive even harder creating new things and delivering exceptional experiences for our customers.

We’re looking for an Studio Manager who is organised and driven by a belief in better. Your role will be to look after the Team. This means organising, planning and being our front line. We are looking for someone to open up and make sure the office is ready for the start of the day.  

This is a great opening into the agency world. It’s a flexible role for somebody looking for a work life balance.

The ideal person will throw themselves into this role and help us grow the business further. We are documenting our processes, refining them and making them scaleable. You should be the type of person who sees something being done and if you think it can be done better, we’ll follow you. 

You will almost certainly become involved in project work as well. We are a close team who share and help each other to make our day to day lives even more enjoyable. If you have a flair for design, photography, writing or maybe a prominent social guru then you will almost certainly be wangling your way onto other tasks from time to time.

In Detail

You will join a fast growing department of designers, developers and digital marketing specialists. As the Office Manager you will assist those in the office.

We are looking to increase our customer experience when visiting our offices, looking to implement a new kitchen, refreshment plans and create an even nicer workspace to be in.

For the right person we are also happy to train you in new skills. If you join us and show a flair for another role we’ll do what we can to get you there.

Day To Day

We are looking for somebody to answer and route calls, respond and sort incoming emails, make appointments and manage the Directors’ diaries.

There are office duties including washing up, meeting room setup and clear down as well as making sure our plants & team get watered. We’d be looking to you as well to help us “Fika” better. Fika is a Swedish coffee break philosophy where the whole team shares a break and gets to know each other a little better. There is no work talk allowed.

Posting letters, sorting the printers and scanning (very occasional), buying cakes and topping up the refreshments. Keeping on top of the Birthday and Anniversary events calendar, sorting cards, cakes and gifts for staff, key clients and partners.

Weekly, Monthly and less frequent

You will be expected to use Xero accounting software to provide weekly reports highlighting outstanding debt owed to Rixxo, referring to the Credit Controller and Accountant where necessary.

You will assist the Accountant with the running of the monthly payroll. You will arrange payment of invoices/bills.

Ensure staff data held on Charlie HR and Xero is up-to-date and GDPR compliant.

You will also update and create new HR and Account processes as required ensuring that the person to follow as you progress will be able to be as awesome as you.

Training on all of this will be provided and due to our process driven nature much of the procedure is already documented and easy to follow.

Key Responsibilities Include:

  • Maintaining employee work/training records
  • Managing office assistant / intern / work experience students
  • Monitoring and reporting outstanding debt
  • Resolving outstanding debt by liaising with other members of the team and communicating with debtors
  • Assist with the reconciliation of accounts on Xero
  • Assist with running monthly payroll 
  • Making payments through the Rixxo bank account
  • Authoring and paying expenses
  • Processing invoices and arranging payment

Support Activities
