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 firstname.lastname@example.org by October 23rd.
