The Head of Production is responsible for the successful running of the production department across the Axis Studios group (currently Glasgow, Bristol, London). This involves structuring and developing the personnel, processes and community of the production department.
The Glasgow Producers are the main area of focus for the Head of Production. However, the HOP exerts a strong influence over all facets of production across the group, working closely with senior production team members on strategy, planning and department performance.
Internally, the HoP requires daily interaction between Ops, HoDs, Management and other key stakeholders across the Axis Studios group to solve studio wide problems and ensure the successful running of projects. Where necessary, the HOP will be asked to take a view on studio-wide processes, even if they fall outside of the immediate remit of the production department.
The role will also involve a strong outward-facing element. The HoP must be able to confidently represent the department to external vendors and partners, whilst relishing the opportunity to influence client strategy / handling on live and pitching projects. A strong working relationship with the Executive Producers is key to help maximise the creative potential of any project, and keep the studio thriving from a business point of view.
Problem solving, task delegation, leadership and a keen eye for logistics are the key skills for this role.
The ability to fearlessly innovate and push for change is hugely advantageous.
