Administration - Digital / Web / Media - , United Kingdom
|Job Title||Operations Assistant|
We are looking for somebody to assist the COO and senior managers in a range of admin, creative and process tasks.
Our Chief Operations Officer needs to clone himself! He and the senior managers need help on the tactical side of things so they can concentrate on the bigger strategy. That’s where you come in. Working across a number of departments, including editorial, marketing, events and more, there are daily communication and organisation tasks that ensure the smooth running of the company. As our ambitions and our teams grow, there’s more to do so if you’re looking to get a general grounding in media, this is your chance to see behind the scenes and help get stuff done.
This is a flexible, fun role with a lot of variety and an opportunity to be at the heart of a busy publishing and event company.
We need your help!
This is a full-time, work-from-home/work-from anywhere position, although you will ideally be on the same time zone as the COO which means UK or adjacent.
You will work remotely, usually from your own home, and therefore a London or Bath location is not essential. You will work over email, Skype, Zoom, Trello and other channels to pick up tasks that the company needs executing quickly. Reporting directly to the COO, you will be the senior management teams’ “fixer”, taking on a variety of day-to-day tasks across all the departments of the company, deputizing for managers where needed and plugging into projects that need an extra pair of hands. A good command of English is essential as is a love of detail and great written communication skills, because you will be reading, creating, checking and processing a lot of documents.
It may be valuable that you have easy access to transport centres such as a train station and airport, because when the world unlocks again you may be invited to meet Steel Media Ltd representatives and clients at relevant events.
What would you be doing?
The role would naturally evolve with market trends and any changes in the company, and working alongside a busy team you will need to be flexible, but the initial focus would be items like this:
• Help process event attendee data, managing Excel/Google spreadsheets of contacts, collating customer information and formatting documents in a way that the rest of the company can use for marketing/sales/editorial, importing into our event meeting platform etc.
Steel Media is a small company where the teams work on a number of projects simultaneously; decisions are made quickly, and no two days are the same. So you’ll need to be good at working independently when needed, and respond to the wider needs of the senior managers as they arise. You need to manage multiple communications channels daily, via email, Skype, Zoom and Google Docs and not be fazed by this. Due to working remotely, you will need to be comfortable being out of an office setting (it doesn't suit everyone) and be able to communicate and report to your line-manager via Skype and other online systems regularly.
Benefits to you
Why would you do this job? It’s a great first step on the media ladder and a chance to gain rapid experience across a number of departments.
Although this is an entry-level job, it’s flexible and for the most part you’ll be left unsupervised to set your own schedule at home.
But you’ll also be part of a team who’ll work together online to support each other and get the job done.
Steel Media is a small, growing company that’s recently become part of a much bigger international operation. You’ll get a glimpse of the wider international games industry, possibly experience some travel, and certainly have your eyes opened to the possibilities of the industry. You’ll make friends from all around the world.
Steel Media is quick to respond to trends at the forefront of the industry. We were one of the first media companies to realise the potential of mobile, NFTs, the metaverse… If you’re an early-adopter and naturally curious, you’ll break a lot of new ground with us.
The people here have a huge amount of experience: many members of the team have been working in the games media for over 20 years, and you’ll receive a great deal of on-the-job insight and training from them.
You’ll be supporting a senior figure in the company – you’ll be at the heart of the company, placing you in a good spot to grow your responsibilities if you prove yourself and as opportunities open up.
You’ll encounter people from all around the games industry from developers to investors. If you’re interested in a career in games, publishing or events, this is a place to build your network of contacts.
It’s a fun, geeky environment full of like-minded people.
This could be ideal for you if you are...
• Seeking an entry-level position at a media company with a chance to grow.
Some things we need from you:
• Fantastic use of English and impeccable attention to detail when it comes to words and numbers. You may be asked to take a written test as part of the interview process.
