Job Title: Design Project Coordinator (through April 2020)
Position Location: Washington, DC
Position Type: Temporary

A well-established advocacy and lobbying organization with a focus on foreign affairs and national headquarters offices in Washington, DC is looking to engage a Design Project Coordinator in a five-month, on-site temporary role that will offer full-time hours and a guaranteed weekly wage. We are hoping to identify someone who can start in the early- to mid-November time frame. 

The Project Coordinator is a mid-level position accountable to assist the design team’s Project/Traffic Manager in coordinating incoming requests, production activities, schedules, and timelines. The Project Coordinator will function as point person to traffic all creative projects (print and digital) to both in-house and out-of-house designers. This is a critical role on the Creative Services team to ensure projects run on-time by setting disciplined schedules and monitoring activity daily work through cross-functional internal and external teams. 

Brainstorm Creative Resources is recruiting for this position at the request of the hiring organization -- a group we have supported on an annual basis, on a wide variety of hiring efforts for more than ten years. We typically post salary and rate ranges in public-facing job descriptions (see below), but we do not typically include employer names. If you are interested in applying for this position, we hope you will allow us to represent you, rather than working independently to identify the hiring organization so that you can inquire with them directly. 

Finally, while this position is currently defined as “temporary,” and we are not actively offering it as a “temporary-to-permanent” transition opportunity, we can share that our client his hired temporary Brainstorm Creative Resources employees into full-time positions in years past. 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

* Manage print deadlines and deliverables with multiple print vendors for multiple departments.
* Manage design requests from start to finish, including obtaining copy and creative direction.
* Traffic manages all design projects coming through the CS team.
* Keep teams informed of progress and changes to schedule, task scope, or budget.
* Assist in gathering estimates for graphic production work.
* Monitor assignments and plans for workload capacity.
* Function as support to the CS Team in the day-to-day management of all accounts.
* Develop weekly status reports for the CS department.
* Assist in asset and content procurement.

QUALIFICATIONS:

* 3 to 5+ years of experience, preferably on a creative services team in an advertising, marketing or creative services agency environment.
* Bachelor's Degree in Graphics Production or a related field helpful, but not required.
* Must be able to handle multiple projects and work under deadlines.
* Experience in design traffic management.
* Experience working with print vendors.
* Must have strong file management skills.
* Superb attention to detail, and a “get it done” work ethic.
* Proficient with Microsoft Office tools (and the Adobe Creative Suite a plus).
* Ability to recognize standards of design and production values for print/digital.
* Ability to operate flexibly, find creative solutions, and adapt to changing circumstances.

HOURS / LOCATION:
We are seeking well qualified individuals who are interested in the following work situation:  

(1) a temporary role with full-time hours starting early- to mid-November; 
(2) with services to be performed at the employer’s offices in Washington, DC;
(3) very close to a Metrorail and Metrobus-accessible location;
(4) continuing through mid-May 2020. 

As noted elsewhere in this job description, this role will feel like a full-time position for the duration of the assignment. All work will be done at the employer's workplace, which is in a contemporary, privately owned office building a short distance from Union Station. Candidates must be interested in working roughly 40-hours/week -- typical full-time hours. Individuals who can only work part-time or who are interested in working from home should not apply. The workplace is easily accessible via car, Metrorail and Metrobus and there are many parking garage and metered on-street parking options. 

RATE:
We are suggesting a broad weekly pay rate range of between $1200 and $1550. These weekly rates, when annualized, are the basis for salaries ranging from $60,000 to $77,500. Alternatively, when considered on an hourly basis, the weekly rates are equivalent to $30.00/hour to $38.75/hour.

Brainstorm Creative Resources strives to pay competitively. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay early career applicants near the top of the stated salary range. Alternatively, highly experienced professionals whose resumes indicate substantial, relevant experience can expect that we will make a strong case to our client, to pay you at or near the top of the range. 

The actual weekly rate offered will be commensurate with your experience and will largely be based on the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and the client organization, and quality of reference providers and references provided. 

RATE TERMS:
This engagement is structured differently than most temporary assignments. Instead of being paid only for the hours you work (which is a staffing industry norm), you will paid for working 40 hours each week -- even if you actually work fewer hours. This policy extends to all days that the employer's office is officially closed for vacation and also to personal and sick days within reason, but not to long strings of days when you might be away from work for personal reasons. It's worth mentioning that the organization's offices are sometimes closed for the entire week between Christmas and New Year's Day. So you may have up to one full week of paid vacation over the holidays. The engagement also offers a limited overtime differential. Overtime will be calculated under a federally mandated formula that indicates different rates each week, depending on how many hours were actually worked during that week. We will gladly provide documentation regarding the overtime policy and explain the specifics of it to the most well qualified applicants.  

APPLICATION:
Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that has been focused on placing creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with Washington, DC-area employers since 2003.

Instead of being paid only for the hours you work (which is a staffing industry norm), you will paid for working 40 hours each week -- even if you actually work fewer hours. This policy extends to all days that the employer's office is officially closed for vacation and also to personal and sick days within reason, but not to long strings of days when you might be away from work for personal reasons. It's worth mentioning that the organization's offices are sometimes closed for the entire week between Christmas and New Year's Day. So you may have up to one full week of paid vacation over the holidays. The engagement also offers a limited overtime differential. Overtime will be calculated under a federally mandated formula that indicates different rates each week, depending on how many hours were actually worked during that week. We will gladly provide documentation regarding the overtime policy and explain the specifics of it to the most well qualified applicants.
