Job Description

**Production Associate for the Election Cycle at The Campaign Workshop**

**Who We Are**
The Campaign Workshop is a fun and quirky bunch of political and advocacy professionals. We help progressive nonprofits, campaigns, labor unions, and advocacy groups to develop new strategies, create digital ads, design direct mail, deliver training, and develop content.

We build award-winning, strategically driven campaigns for clients like AFSCME, UFCW, Giffords, Mighty Earth, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Federation of Teachers, National Association of Secondary School Principals, LGBTQ Victory Institute, and California Federation of Teachers. For samples of our work, please visit our [website.](http://www.thecampaignworkshop.com/our-work) Also, we have done an extensive amount of writing on our [blog](http://www.thecampaignworkshop.com/blog) and in our [e-books](http://www.thecampaignworkshop.com/ebooks).

We are a fully remote company offering a welcoming and relaxed (for as much as politics is relaxing), flexible work environment, and believe in the intentional leadership development for all of our staff.

We are committed to racial justice, and we’re working to build an actively anti-racist company. Internally, we’re working to create a company where everyone can show up fully as themselves, where we engage directly with our identities and biases, and where we work together to dismantle systems of oppression. Externally, we hope to show up for our clients in their work towards racial justice, to help build a stronger and more diverse pipeline of talent into political consulting, and to grow partnerships with vendors of diverse backgrounds.

**What You’ll Do**
The Production Associate is a full-time, temporary position from July 15th - November 8th, 2024. The Production Associate reports to the Production team and works with other staff members on assigned projects. As a Production Associate, you will:

- Assist with print and mail production-related tasks, such as entering vendor pricing bids into pricing sheets, generating and reconciling purchase orders (POs), scheduling and monitoring tracking mechanisms for outgoing mail, and preparing file requests and external links for vendors.
- Help organize communication with printers to convey project details, address questions, and ensure accuracy throughout the production process.
- In coordination with the Traffic Manager, provide TCW teams with traffic summaries based on release dates for all job types in the creative pipeline.
- Provide coverage to the Traffic Manager to coordinate artist assignments and maintain the art traffic board using our project management system, FileMaker.
- Work with Account and Production staff to assess the Art team's daily/weekly needs. This includes helping to communicate docket priorities for projects with competing deadlines.
- Coordinate with temporary and freelance resources to cover needs and determine project availability as needed.
- Assist with administration tasks as needed.
- Help with proofing direct mail and other client deliverables before they go out the door.
- Perform other duties as may be assigned from time-to-time by managers.
**Who You Are**
This is an entry-level role. While we don’t require a set number of years of experience, we expect that most successful candidates will have one to two years working in administrative, accounting, or similar client management roles with a creative team. We are looking for someone who is:

- **Detailed-oriented and reliable: **There will be a lot of work to be done in a short amount of time. We are looking for someone who’s good at detail-oriented work, dependable, and engaged in the work that we’re doing.
- **An adept organizer and problem-solver. **You can juggle multiple complex projects simultaneously and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment. You can predict roadblocks before you encounter them and plan ahead to make sure that we deliver results for our clients. Experience using FileMaker or a similar CRM platform, Quickbooks, Excel, and Adobe Acrobat, is a plus.
- **A clear and open communicator. **You understand that competing deadlines can pose logistical challenges, and you are willing to engage with all team members to determine priorities and ensure that everyone has the information they need to maintain internal and external workflows so deliverables remain on schedule.
- **Ready to own work on day one.** We’ll give you a lot of responsibility, and you’ll be able to set goals, take ownership of your tasks, and start moving the ball forward. You’ll effectively manage up and laterally in a small team, ask for help when you need it, and receive feedback productively.
- **A quick and eager learner. **We are looking for folks who can learn how to do our work quickly. We’re a small team, and we all wear lots of hats, and you’ll help us fill gaps. You can pick up on new ideas, ask questions to fill in knowledge gaps, and find solutions to problems that you don’t already know the answer to.
- **Deeply committed to racial justice and all forms of equity. **You understand how your identities impact the way you show up at work, and you’ll use your platform at The Campaign Workshop to help us build an inclusive and equitable workplace. As the Production Associate, you will work with individuals across teams, including third-party vendors and freelancers who are integral to our production process. Your ability to coordinate resources equitably across teams is critical.
If you’re not sure that you have all of these skills, please throw your hat in the ring anyway! We’re most excited to work with people who learn quickly and want to help us advocate for progressive causes.

This role is open to candidates with a range of backgrounds and experience, and does not require a college degree. We’re primarily interested in folks who are eager to learn more about our work with some background in creative workflow and are interested in launching careers in politics and advocacy.

**What You’ll Gain**
- **First-hand experience in project management.** You’ll pitch in to help the Production team manage projects from the initial pricing stage through to the final report out after the mailing date, gaining insight into TCW’s production process.
- **You’ll make an impact. **You’ll be at the frontlines of our work to champion progressive causes and you’ll gain firsthand experience in the creation, production, and management of programs.
- **We show up for each other. **We’re a diverse team with a wide range of experiences––some of us have been at TCW through 13 years and 4 promotions, and others are just starting out here as their first job out of college––but we share a commitment to building a workplace where we can all thrive. We respect each others’ boundaries, recognize that we all have commitments beyond work, and trust each other to get work done.
- **You’ll love working here. **We’re a small, collaborative team of people who really care about doing good work and who treat each other with compassion and respect. We offer great benefits and real opportunities for growth.
The average starting salary for this role is $54,000 annually which will be prorated for the election cycle along with great benefits, including:
- Paid vacation days before September 1, 2024.
- Blue Cross PPO platinum plan with the premium fully covered
- $45 per month cell phone stipend and a $65 per month internet stipend.
- $100 per month student loan reimbursement
- Full remote office set up
