We are hiring!

Author Team Tanami

Ready to start your adventure in the world of video production?
Want a fun and fast paced job in the creative industry?

We’re on the lookout for a multi-tasking, admin conquering, creative-focused, enthusiastic Production Assistant extraordinaire. If you think you tick these boxes, then we’ve got the job for you… 

The ideal candidate should be organised, proactive, show initiative and have good I.T. and communication skills. They should have a keen eye for detail, be happy to work under pressure and to strict deadlines. Knowing how to master a spreadsheet doesn’t hurt either. 

A typical day as a production assistant might involve dealing with accounts and expenses, hiring studios and equipment, booking hotels and making travel arrangements, researching music tracks, posting on our social media accounts – anything that offers support to the wider team Tanami.  

We’re looking for someone who is as comfortable answering calls and sorting our inbox, as they would be with making coffees on shoots and building relationships with our suppliers. 

No specific experience necessary, but a passion for the industry is a must. If you have work experience, a relevant qualification or side venture or volunteer experience within the media industry this is favourable.  

Desirable skills 

  • Drivers license
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • PowerPoint / Google Slides
  • Strong understanding of social media 

An excellent opportunity for someone who’s looking for a job in an exciting and fast-moving Creative industry. If you’re ready to work hard and give it your all, then we want to hear from you!
