  • Support the smooth-running production-related processes and systems e.g. asset tracking, record keeping and general administration

What we’re looking for from you?

  • Demonstrated success in end to end project coordination
  • Ability to quickly pick up and successfully manage workflows and processes
  • Ability to effectively problem solve and adapt quickly in dynamic, live project situations
