  • Salt’s advice for getting a Studio Manager job

    Always show you passion for creative management. Show your understanding for creative vision and how you relate that to creative heads. Show how you inspire your creative colleagues to deliver the best work in the industry. Further to this show your awards, what you are proud of and why – it’s all about passion and the know how to deliver!

    Employers’ requirements

    Most employers will require candidates to have previous studio or project management experience, and knowledge of different process and methodologies including Agile and Waterfall. Intermediate to advanced design knowledge and capability is also a must-have, in order to make sure you understand the team you are managing.

    CV requirements

    Aside from experience in a similar role, your CV should display a track record of leading a studio on successful projects. You’ll also need to have a proven ability to meet strict deadlines, clear communication skills, and proficiency in all Office software.

    Interview preparation

    Before a Studio Management interview, you may be asked to prepare a portfolio showing examples of some design projects you have delivered. Make sure you find out as much about the company you’re interviewing with as possible, in order to bring your perspective to the way they work.

Top Tip

"Be a people person, show that you understand what makes creatives tick, how to engage with them and how to get the best out of them. Studio management is all about creativity and delivery on time everytime!"
