Development Assistant, starting September 2021

beTravelwise (BTW) has a full-time position for a Development Assistant (DA) to help the directors deliver customised elearning, animations and translation projects for their clients. The role requires the incumbent to be methodical and detailed in compiling client information and comparing versions of products. The DA should be confident in using a range of software packages and willing to learn new ones as required.

Job Responsibilities:

  • To help the Directors customise courses with tasks such as recolouring, syncing voiceovers to animations, identifying content for translation projects.
  • Using a range of software tools, such as Premier and Illustrator, including elearning authoring systems.
  • Liaise with suppliers on budgeting and project management.
  • Liaise with clients on customisation requirements.
  • Review supplier/ internal work prior to sending to clients.
  • Participate in regular meetings with the Development team to give updates on current projects and assist with planning future projects.

Key Competencies:

  • IT literate – we use computers and various software systems for all our work, authoring, editing and communications. Training will be provided on the packages we use, however a desire to learn lots of systems is a pre-requisite. Whilst the role uses many creative tools, the tasks are more akin to comparing long Excel lists than letting your imagination run wild.
  • Accuracy, all work must be completed to a high standard.
  • Excellent English, accurate proofing of our materials before delivery is essential.
  • Honesty, we are a small team and whilst we don’t expect you to know how to do everything, we do need you to be honest with us and deliver when you say you will or ask for help at the earliest opportunity.

We see this as an entry level position; whether school leaver or new graduate, we are willing to train the right individual if/as the role develops.

You will be working directly with one of the Directors as part of the Development team.
