We're after an incredibly organized person, responsible for the planning and management of Newell Creative Kitchen, ensuring the studio is set up to deliver all creative projects to a brilliant standard, on time and in budget.

This person must be exceedingly well organized, flexible, and enjoy the administrative challenges of supporting team members in a fast-paced, distributed office environment.
What you'll be responsible for:


  • Managing the day to day running of the creative studio - the go-to person for all space utilization requests, vendor and IT support coordination.

  • Booking in and managing freelancers and agency support when required.
  • Maximizing the studio's efficiency by continually evolving and developing processes.
  • Collating, reviewing and sharing key studio stats every month, as a tool to reflect and improve efficiencies (and celebrate the wins!)
  • Working closely with project managers to build creative timelines for key or larger projects, such as campaigns and innovation launches.
  • Balancing the checkbook - managing to budgets, tracking and submitting expense reports.
  • Championing collaboration - liaising with internal clients, agencies and the wider Brand and Comms teams to share best practices and make connections
  • Customer & team event planning - showcasing our brands and breaking bread together builds strong partnerships.

    You are:

    • Highly organized with a methodical approach and meticulous eye for detail.
    • Passionate about making everything the best it can be.
    • Confident liaising and collaborating with stakeholders, making decisions where necessary and escalating problems or project blockers.

    • Confident, calm and have a reassuring presence, unfazed by tight deadlines and conflicting priorities
    • Able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines whilst remaining cool and collected.
    • Effective communicator, approachable individual with good client management and negotiation skills
    • A consummate host - you'll be the face of Newell Brands and the NCK to influencers, talent, creatives, consumers and customers

      You'll have:

      • BA/ BS Degree in relevant field
      • 3-5 years prior experience in a similar role, either in-house or agency side
      • An understanding of creative processes and language
      • Proven project management skills
      • The ability and interest to be onsite in Hoboken, NJ five days a week
