CAREERS

We regularly have full time and part time digital marketing jobs, & opportunities for freelance, work experience and interns.

Culture is really important to us at The Creative Collective and as such who we choose to work with is super important.

We are a fast paced company and most roles are multi-faceted which requires exceptional organisational, time management and prioritising skills, ability to adhere to budgets and pre-defined briefs and an ability to cope under pressure.

You should have high energy and passion for what you do, a commitment to delivering excellence and a hunger to prove yourself. You will be prepared to become intimately familiar with our current systems, processes and procedures and be entrepreneurial and commercial in your thinking.

Although we have a solid team of full time and part time staff across our offices on the Sunshine Coast and in Newcastle, we often have overflow work. Some of our freelancers have been working with us for several years and are very much a part of our team, attending our social functions and a part of our private Facebook group – our ‘virtual’ office water cooler. Freelancing means you can get the best of both worlds – you get to play on your strengths and bury yourself in what you do best whether that be SEO, PPC, social media management, PR, graphic design or otherwise. We supply you with a steady stream of work and you bill one person who pays – us! Please note we do have high expectations and only hire people who are reliable, able to communicate well and adhere to our systems and procedures. If this sounds like you, see some of our current opportunities below.

Please note, we do not have any need for illustrators, copywriters, videographers, photographers or graphic designers at the current time as these disciplines only represent a small part of what we do.

We are a digital marketing agency and as such we are most interested in people with SEM, social media and data analytics experience.

Don’t know where your skills sit? Need to upskill? Take our test and we can connect you to up to date digital skils training. through our sister company, The Training Collective!

The end goal for anyone who works with us is to keep our clients expectations exceeded, their businesses kicking marketing goals and our competitors envious. If you are driven, ambitious and love the sound of all of this, apply below.

WORK EXPERIENCE/INTERNSHIPS

CURRENT POSITIONS

The Creative Collective are seeking an experienced bookkeeper to fill a casual (consistent hours) and flexible role based at our Newcastle office.

We’re a cool crew of 10, with one mission in mind – to keep our customers happy, their businesses kicking marketing goals and our competitors envious.

And to do this we need our books up to date, our team (staff & contractors) paid on time, debts kept down, reporting done on a timely basis, and all legal accounting requirements met.

The Job

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, accurate, dedicated, highly motivated and organised book keeper who has an intimate understanding of Xero who can pick up where our last long term bookkeeper is leaving off.

This position will require you to assess our current bookkeeping volume and together we will design the role in terms of which days and hours you will work.

Whilst we offer a flexible workplace with some working from home permissible, we’d like the majority of the hours to be completed in-house at our offices in Mayfield in the first instance, until you have an intimate understanding of our business.

This individual will work with our directors, admin team, company accountant and be responsible for resolving any accounts queries, reconciling, payroll, super, assisting with debt collecting as well as reporting.

Key Responsibilities include but limited to:

  • Every second day bank and eWay reconciliations (with bank feeds activated)
  • Every second day reconciling for x1 Stripe account & x1 Paypal accountant

  • Weekly payroll processing and super obligations – currently x10 staff – may increase to x12 in 2019
  • Weekly assistance with debt collecting (though we do have another in-house resource who assists with this function)
  • Monthly credit card expensing – x1 card
  • Monthly lodgement of PAYG
  • Monthly reports provided by 7th of following month with commentary on observations/recommendations (we will collaborate with you on how these are prepared/provided or even explore the use of dashboard systems such as Spotlight)
  • Quarterly superannuation processing for 10 staff
  • Quarterly BAS processing (if you’re not a registered BAS agent still apply as we can potentially get our company accountant to do this)
  • Ongoing collaboration with internal staff on any accounts queries i.e. duplicate invoices, voided invoices, identifying how items should be coded

To be considered for this role, you will also likely possess the following skills and attributes;

  • Strong experience in bookkeeping using Xero specifically
  • Demonstrated experience in small business bookkeeping
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Positive attitude
  • Good verbal and written communication skills
  • Be committed, self-motivated
  • Be highly organised and have a sense of initiative – must be able to meet deadlines and be a whizz at time management.
  • Able to learn new tasks quickly and work autonomously
  • Able to analyse data and identify potential issues/opportunities/cost savings/efficiencies
  • Experience using Google products will be highly regarded but is not essential (calendar/docs/spreadsheets/gmail etc).
  • Experience with Xero integrations will be highly regarded but is not essential
  • Experience using accounting dashboards such as Spotlight or similar is not essential but will be highly regarded

Now in our tenth year of business, our organisation offers strong professional development opportunities. Life is anything but dull at The Creative Collective. Workplace culture is really important to us – we like to foster a creative and fun environment that is all about kicking goals, thinking outside the square and being the best we can. Have ideas? We’re all ears! Like to wind down after a busy week? Us too! We work hard, but we know how to play hard too. Christmas get-aways and team junkets are something you can expect from us when the company does well.

READY TO GET ON BOARD?

If you have the above experience working in a similar role, are looking for flexibility with part time hours and you would like to work for a great team who are dedicated to collaborating with you to achieve great outcomes, please send [email protected] your resume and cover letter and tell us why you think you’d rock this role and how foolish we’d be to overlook you. Please apply before Fri 14 December. The role will be commencing from Monday 7 January 2019, with book keeping responsibilities back dating to 1 January 2019.

A negotiated package that is commensurate with qualifications, experience and capacity to do this and any future role will be taken into consideration.
