About Anabranch

Anabranch is a company builder. We create and launch businesses 100% in-house, from concept to full-scale operations.

Our approach is simple; we find broken markets and work closely with specially selected founders to design the business and create world-class products that will serve them properly. We support the founder to grow the concept into an operating business on an aggressive timeframe. Once the business is established, we continue to support with strategy, execution, M&A and exit advisory. Our mandate is to grow legendary companies, and this isn’t our first rodeo. We shipped our first product in 2015, and have since launched three businesses and 11 products that reach over 1m users annually. And we’re just getting started.

The business with the best team on the field will win, and we hire the best people who we can trust to excel and put their ideas into action. You’ll be joining a high-performance culture and team with a track record of building businesses that disrupt markets.

The Production Manager is responsible for the success of our media portfolio, from initial product concept through to distribution and promotion to the end user. Reporting to the Managing Director, this is a unique opportunity to take a lead role in end-to-end management and delivery of world class products (both print and online). Responsibilities include:

  • The Law Guide
  • The Uni Guide (yet to be released)
  • www.GradAustralia.com.au

The finer details of responsibility include:

  • Publication concept design & template approvals in Adobe InDesign
  • Production timeline planning, including liaising with all stakeholders
  • Commissioning & managing writers and/or design staff
  • Hiring & managing designers (including offshore staff)

What success looks like

This is not a “sit there and we’ll tell you what to do” kind of role. It involves an exciting breadth of responsibility and real impact. Success in this role will require:

  • Amazing eye for design and working knowledge of InDesign/Adobe suit
  • Exceptional personal time management & prioritisation skills.
  • Excellent organisational and management skills.
  • Project and stakeholder/account management.
  • The ability to work with autonomy, show initiative, and take ownership of projects.
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment and deliver quality products efficiently
  • Exceptional attention to detail

We are a dynamic team and we hire great people who we trust to excel and put their ideas into action!

If you don’t already have a wealth of production managerial experience, we are willing to back junior candidates who we believe have the raw talent required to grow into a production manager role. ‘Raw talent’ in this case means:

  • Eye for design- bring your creative flair!
  • Exceptionally good emotional intelligence and people skills
  • Sheer hustle and drive
  • Fast learner

If you’re a self starter and itching to ‘punch above your weight class’, we want to hear from you!

If it’s not you, but you know someone who fits the bill, introduce us and we’ll gladly pay a $1,000 finder’s fee.
