Description of work to be done:
Creative Audio Producer Seeks PT Executive Assistant
A busy, creative, dynamic audio producer in Los Angeles/Santa Clarita is seeking a detail-oriented, flexible yet reliable, management-brained Executive Assistant. This position can be in-person in the Los Angeles area, or virtually contracted (telecommuting is okay).
Client is in the midst of building multiple brands with overlapping foundations. A podcast for creatives, a music producing portfolio, running a recording studio, many creative collaborations and developing online teaching materials.
This client is extremely creative and needs someone detail-oriented to provide necessary balance. If you hate managing the big picture flow of life, this is not the position for you. The client needs help automating processes, building a productive crm database, managing a freelance team, ensuring details across various types of projects are getting scheduled and attended to by plugging them into the studio production pipeline and copying that data into a visual "dashboard" such as Trello or other solution.
This is a good fit for someone who is excited by the building stage of a business that has many opportunities and an outstanding opportunity to learn about the entertainment industry.
You should have a desire for excellence, efficiency, and clarity while being flexible and helping to always maintain flow with the larger picture.
The is a client is highly auditory, and as such prefers you be available to take calls for briefings and strategy sessions. Sometimes information will be delivered by short <5 min voice memo to be parsed and entered into Asana (if an actionable) or Google Docs or Evernote (if big picture related). It is important that you are able to think on your feet and move this information with ease to the place that is best suited for follow up. Catching and translating ideas into text and actionables is a very large part of the job.
You are a lover of learning -- innovative and strategic, but in touch with people. Each day will be a new adventure, although you will have some recurring tasks.
Because the client is located in Los Angeles, he works Pacific hours, and will need someone who can be around those hours.
The client is very creative, and sometimes you will need to be able to anticipate your tasks and self-manage well. He wants to work with someone that is able to anticipate his creative flow as much as possible and to help him avoid burnout.
Being a creative, he needs someone to protect his “flow time” while still ensuring deliverables get met. Your help means he will get to impact the world by working with incredible artists, and still get to be present for his family.
Assistant should be willing to freelance and be responsible for their own hours.
