We have a need for a digital person, no not like one of the lads here is building (voted staff member most likely to build his own girlfriend from secondhand modems and old computers, a possibility he has yet to deign scarily), someone to look after our digital stuff.
Will include working the website, building catalogues, doing graphics and things along those lines. That's the main thrust of the position but it will also include some hands on with the goodies when things get crazy or the need is there from time to time. That's measuring stuff out, stick it in boxes for courier, splicing if they are up for it and other general not too technical stuff.
Can be male or female or other or still deciding. But be aware we do have a male rich environment and while none are/have/intend anything bad or offensive it is not the most PC of environments sometimes but it is all just talk nothing more. Our ladies do give as good as the blokes, often they are better at it. But it is all in jest, anything more is not acceptable.
Pay, yeah we'll do that. We don't do minimums and we do reward good work. Very strong on work/life balance, we believe we work to live and think anyone who lives to work is a sad bastard. So 8am to 4.30pm is the usual, can add 30misn either side in busy period and occasionally a Sat morning if things are going off. Hours outside 8-4.30 are optional.
Age - not important but we do like to give younguns, often just ex-schoolies, a chance to get into the work place. The Government looks to be stopping that shortly but in the mean time we're willing to give a newbie a chance.
90 days trial - technically yes it is there but we've never once even thought of using it, like most we have never had the need.
Drivers licence - good to have but not critical.
Attitude - we like a good one but too much can be bad. The ability to know when to use some and when to just STFU would be a magnificent quality to have. Work wise when the job has to be done the ability to just get it done even if your having a crap day is another magnificent quality.
Computer skills - good ones as this is the guts of the job. We aren't asking to design nuclear material refining factories or Boeings next super aircraft but good with websites and MS office like things. Good with layouts and getting things to a 'ready to print' stage.
Product Knowledge - be nice to have some boating just for the terminology but not critical. Some of the info will be technical and we do know we will most likely have to help whomever with that, taht's fine. But more clues the merrier obviously.
What they would need - a good attitude, closed footware, tidy clothes, the ability to think for yourself, the ability to say 'Sorry I do not know, I may need some help'. That's all. We are willing and to send our people on training courses from time to time, we pay for that.
Location is Wairau Valley on the North Shore.
In an ideal world we see a just left schoolie or maybe a GAP yearer who has a interest in computers, has a arty touch and wants to get into the workforce. We do know newbies need help with, are happy to help with that and we have had lots of experiance doing so. But that's not critical.
Sound like you or maybe for something that's currently stretched out on the couch at home, then PM me.
