Cause+Affect is trying to find you.
You will fill a project management/executive assistant role in our Gastown brand consultancy.
At times it will demand you to be the most senior point of contact in the company and at other times it will demand you to make sure the milk is not sour.
You will look after invoicing of a million in billing and at the same time, the office recycling program while making sure our Creative Director gets onto that conference call at 2:00pm.
Manage projects like a project manager, manage clients like an account manager, and manage staff like a boss.
You love words like deliverables, timelines, budgets, expenses, payables, receivables, approvals, feedback, details, minutes….you get the picture.
You have a love for good design but have a passion for spreadsheets.
In every situation, you think “how much will that cost?” and “how long will that take?”
You will create monthly financial reporting (profitability, cash flow), budgeting/forecasting, analysis of what projects are profitable and why. If this doesn’t sound fun, that should be a clue.
It would be helpful if you have worked in some kind of creative agency before. Not a deal breaker, but really helpful. We find it just gives you the language that we speak each day.
We are small. 5 plus you. We are not going to get any bigger so if you have grand plans for a big agency gig, we are not it.
We have tons of Creativity, Strategy, Design, Writing, Facilitation, but what we need is the glue that holds it all together.
You may very likely be the most important person in our company.
