Our vision is to grow the market and expand our offerings to reach far beyond traditional print.

The Role

Blue Star Design Studio is looking for a Studio Manager to take our business into its next phase.

Our national studio is made up of 7 experienced designers and Mac Ops, across multiple locations.  A key partner to our core business, the Studio is an important piece in Blue Star's ability to deliver a complete offering to our customers.

Our studio’s focus is primarily on “below-the-line” activity for our customers.  We are their execution partner and we pride ourselves on making things happen.

The Studio Manager's role is key to our ability to deliver high-quality, timely and cost-effective design services.  We're therefore looking for someone who has what it takes to own the delivery of great outcomes for our customers.

Key responsibilities of this role include:

  1. Implementing systems and processes
  2. Estimating and pricing
  3. Workflow management
  4. Resourcing and scheduling
  5. Customer Communications (Client and Blue Star Account Services teams)
  6. Performance measurement and reporting

You’ll get to work with our amazing portfolio of clients that includes some of New Zealand’s most successful and recognised brands.

This is a great opportunity for someone to make their mark, with scope for setting up the culture, the tools and the processes that make a great design studio.

We're looking for someone who wants to grab this business and help it reach its potential. If that sounds like you, give us a shout.
