Office Coordinator/Budding Print Technician Wanted!

New Leaf Editions is a small collaborative print studio. We enjoy working with artists to create printed images using all forms of print media and with designers, to create projects with etched metal. It’s a pretty small studio on Granville Island but we have a large and eclectic array of artists & designers that work with us. For a pdf of the job description please click here.

We are looking for someone 4 days per week who wants to deepen their printmaking skills and enjoys office coordination – a combination of skill sets every artist needs to hone at some point.

Two days a week the primary focus of job will be to reorganize the electronic files – they are not a mess just need a little care taking. After a solid system is in place, you would be responsible for maintaining it along with creating invoices & estimates. In addition, one of the ongoing administrative responsibilities will be implementing a social media editorial calendar (training will be provided). The other two days a week is all about printmaking. As a master printer I welcome the opportunity to help you expand your printmaking skills – whether around etching, relief printing, screen-printing, or any of the other print media we use here.

So if you:
 are good under pressure (maybe even thrive a bit)
 work well with artists – no matter how frustrated they get
 have a strong desire to learn more about printmaking but are currently
grounded in the basics
 enjoy a good sense humor in others and are willing to share yours
 have a solid working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
 love to organize space & files (‘like’ would be ok too)
 are experienced in Word & Excel
 are not afraid of budgets, invoices or estimates
 have some photography experience around documentation
 and are comfortable with posting on all social media channels
then this may be the job for you!

So if you want to work in a Granville Island studio 4 days/week 9:30-6pm for $15 – $18/hr (depending on your skill level), help to keep the studio running efficiently, learn new printmaking skills, while enjoying the opportunity to meet & work with all kinds of artists that will test your print making skill and knowledge then send your cover letter and resume to by October 23rd.
