Assignment Desk Production Coordinator Assistant

Assignment Desk, a video production crewing company, needs an awesome Production Coordinator Assistant.

We’re growing and need another great person who wants to grow with us. We need an assistant to help our coordinators with all aspects of booking video shoots. This involves working with Major Network Sports, Network News, Corporate, Broadcast and Digital clients throughout the country. We’re looking for someone that we like working with.

Do you like Barstool Sports? Did you watch the Super Bowl? Do you watch HGTV’s hit “Fixer Upper”? Does New York Fashion Week sound fun? Do you want to work on coordinating fun shoots like these and live in Charleston, SC at the same time? That’s what we do.

It starts with Attitude. If you have a hard working, team player attitude, we want you. We can train you to learn the rest. The big thing is, we need someone willing to show up at the same time everyday to help book shoots and WIN with us. You’ll identify new clients while leveraging existing clients to build on success. This is a logistics and operations position in need of a personality that clients want to work with. We’re looking for someone that our clients can get to know, like, and trust. This is not a creative position in a sense of you being behind the camera or in front of the lens.
