ABOUT THE ROLE
Mission’s workshop is tasked with building most of our equipment used on productions big and small, and covers the gamut of DIT, Digital Dailies and Video Playback equipment. As such, it’s much more than a rental facility, this is the front end of where the digital workflow starts. With a strong ability to deal with complex logistics, often supporting projects shooting in remote locations, this job is well suited to someone who enjoys being hands-on, with some technical understanding of digital cinematography and workflows.
This role would suit someone who is happiest working with people, and will require regular communication with our clients, third party suppliers, our internal teams and the freelancers we support. Some of the key tasks for this role include but are not limited to:
Improving internal systems by supporting the Field Solutions Manager in the running of Current, our internal asset management system.
Play a vital role in asset management, by helping to make sure we know where every single item in our workshop is at any given time.
Work closely with the Field Solutions Manager by tracking workshop expenditure.
Work closely with our pool of freelancers; DIT, Lab and QTAKE Operators and support them with their kit requirements.
Taking care of the administration side of the workshop which includes varied tasks such as issuing RMA’s or chasing productions for damaged and broken kit, raising POs and checking quotes
Coordinate the daily logistics by speaking with clients for deliveries and collections, organising the drivers schedules, booking couriers, and producing carnets.
Other logistical planning can include anything from liaising with rental houses and studios to organising rental vehicles for our technicians when needed.
Mission is both fast-paced and forever evolving, and we’re passionate about hiring people who thrive in that environment. The successful candidate will be happy to turn their hand to whatever is needed to help keep things running smoothly. We are open between 9am-6pm, however, with a 35 hour contract this means you will be doing 8 hour days. The office rota is designed so that the office is covered between 8am-6pm.
