About Boots:

Boots is the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer. With over 2,500 stores in the UK, our purpose is to help our customers look and feel better than they ever thought possible. Boots UK is part of the Retail Pharmacy International Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc, the first global pharmacy-led health and wellbeing enterprise.

Overview of the Role:

We are currently expanding our internal digital design and production studio – the award-winning B-Hive – which is home to a multi-skilled team at the heart of the Boots UK marketing team. We provide a wide range of content, imagery, video, animation and other assets for our digital channels. As part of this expansion, we are looking for a production management assistant to help support and deliver the operational and practical elements of studio production.

Your Responsibilities:

Working as part of the digital design and production team, you will be responsible for making everything run as efficiently as possible. This includes:

• With the Production Manager, working through creative briefs that are submitted to the studio
• Scheduling work across the studio’s resource, using our custom workflow management tools
• Supporting and delivering the operational and practical elements of video, stills and asset production. This may include logistics, finance, personnel, equipment and/or content for productions, both on and off set.

Our Ideal Candidate:

You will have a desire to apply your excellent organisational and process-oriented skills help the B-Hive run as efficiently and effectively as possible. You will be able to communicate details and information clearly and effectively to a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, working well under pressure and to tight deadlines. You will be comfortable working as an organiser and planner in an ever-changing creative environment. You will not fear Excel or other IT tools, but be comfortable in using them to predict the future, maximise effort and bring order out of chaos (on time and according to the brief). You may be educated to degree level or have an apprenticeship backed up by relevant experience. More important than that is a desire to pursue a career in production & project management.
