High Level Photography are looking for a dynamic and driven Operations Manager to join our talented team. We are not your normal photography company. Our team hangs out of helicopters, planes, and cranes, fly drones and sometimes we even stand on our own two feet!

The Role
You will be responsible for Operations across the business, working closely with our team, our clients, and our suppliers so you will need strong communication skills and a passion for people.

You will be managing the whole process from job confirmation, through to ensuring all the details are ready for invoicing on completion of the project. You will also ensure the smooth running of the office, so mastery of people management is key. Your day will be varied, fun and demanding. We believe the company is one of a kind and has successfully carved an exciting niche for itself.
