Your Mission:

Almost everything at Proximity flows through our Creative Services department, who ensure that the look and feel of all our communications is consistent with our brand and resonates with our audiences—from rural Myanmar farmers, to donors, to our own team. As our organization drives towards our goal of 1 million farmer customers, we need an eager Junior Creative Producer to drive creative projects forward by managing timelines, tasks and vendors.

As the Junior Creative Producer you love making things happen. You can make a Gantt chart with your eyes closed, and know how to push though work in dynamic and often unpredictable environments. The Junior Creative Producer will play an integral role in our Creative Services team to keep timelines, budgets and teams on track through proactive and agile project management.

What You Will Do:

Trafficking and Resourcing:

  • Input into and track the weekly trafficking plan, adjusting according to daily project status and flagging any bandwidth issues to the Creative Operations Director.
  • Assign and monitor daily tasks and projects for creative team members, adjusting and allocating as necessary.

Project Management and Production:

  • Work with Creative Operations Director and in collaboration with creative team, marketing managers and other departments, to develop realistic and detailed project timelines.
  • Be responsible for daily creative project operations and logistics—tracking status and budget, updating timelines, communicating with and managing vendors—proactively raising issues and sharing solutions to all stakeholders.
  • Help maintain the project management platform, making daily updates to status, timelines, tasks, resourcing and creative assets.
  • Manage day-to-day communication and relationships with other departments on each project, sending regular status updates, communicating and strategizing on timeline fluctuations, scheduling review meetings and tracking revision rounds and feedback.

Vendor and Consultant Management:

  • Manage the procurement process for vendors of low-mid value projects—sourcing quotes, compiling documentation and pushing through approval pipeline.
  • Conduct day-to-day communication with vendors, particularly print and installation, on timelines, delivery, budget and quality control.
  • Organize quality control checks for all printed items with a creative team member.

Must Haves:

  • 1-2 years project, marketing or print production management experience in a marketing and/or agency environment
  • Demonstrated understanding of the creative and production processes, particularly for print
  • Ability to work across teams and cultures to build strong relationships
  • Interest in being part of an organization that greatly impacts local communities
  • At least conversational in speaking, writing and reading in English
  • Fluent in speaking, writing and reading Myanmar

Added Bonus:

  • Experience or expertise in the social enterprise or development sectors
  • Experience or expertise in agriculture or climate change
  • Experience with digital or video production

About Proximity

Proximity Designs is tackling globally important issues at the nexus of climate change, deep poverty, food insecurity, inequality and political conflict. We do this by helping hundreds of thousands of rural people care for their soils, grow more food, earn better incomes and build resilience against climate change. We address a critical government and market failure, by designing and delivering products and services needed to make farming families more productive, profitable and environmentally sustainable. We offer our low-income customers a suite of innovative and affordable farm solutions such as micro-irrigation systems, bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides, soil health testing kits, on-call crop protection services and farm loans.

Over the past 20 years, we’ve generated USD 782 million in additional income for 1.2 million poor farming households across rural Myanmar. With this income increase, farmers can invest in their future: education for their children, more nutritious food, better healthcare and investments in their farms or other village enterprises.
