The Role: Studio Manager and Print Technician
In this role you will run all aspects of the Glasgow based production studio; manage interns, print client projects as well as RISOTTO products, manage shop orders, make time to think strategically in refining services, and implementing development (sourcing new equipment, planning workshops etc.).

Key Activities Include:
• General Admin + Studio Maintenance
• Print Services
• Shop Production and dispatch
• Wholesale production + distribution
• RISO CLUB management (subscription) + Website Updates
• Workshop delivery (once a month)
• Intern management
• PopUp Events + Fairs (once a year)

A day in the studio will comprise an assortment of the above. Often there are many jobs and tasks happening simultaneously, each requiring the same attention and quality of delivery. It is crucial that the person filling the position is self motivated and excited by the variety of tackling lots of different roles and responsibilities.
Although you will work closely with me, I’m often away from the studio, so you will be required to work independently, managing your time, our projects, and the intern(s).

The position is demanding, but equally has a lot to offer:
• Continual learning opportunities about the riso and production processes
• Access to the studio’s facilities and resources
• Flexible working hours, where you can manage your own schedule
• Travel opportunities with workshops and events
• Active contributor to Glasgow’s art scene and the wider riso community

You should apply if…
…you enjoy both the organisational aspects of managing the studio operations, as well as working with your hands producing products and delivering workshops.
…you are excited by the prospect of working for a small studio and the learning opportunities and growth this can offer you.
…you enjoy working independently, as well as thrive in social situations, such as workshops or as an ambassador at pop up events.

We are looking for a candidate who can demonstrate the following industry skills:
• A keen eye for detail to support the needs and standards of the creative sector
• Knowledge of print production in general and an understanding of creative processes
• Knowledge of the risograph process and culture
• Knowledge of the Adobe Suite (Photoshop and Illustrator) and the ability to check and create colour separations and proof artwork files

If you have limited industry skills, we may be able to offer specific training to accommodate.
