Hello, I'm Steph, I live in North Wales with my wonderful husband Iain and mancubs Fox (5) and Pip (3). I am a coach, an acting coach, a theatre director, an entrepreneur. I run Both Feet Actor Training, Bodlondeb Studio & Retreat and my own freelance work / projects. I do too much, work too many hours and I’m looking for someone to share the hours with me so I can do more of what I love, lead a more balanced life and be a more present mum before it’s too late.
The idea is that you'll support me across all areas of my work life - to my surprise, it looks like I'm looking for a personal assistant!
Have a look through the websites and on my social media and if it feels right, I'd love to hear from you.
Applying is simple, read through everything properly, then fill out the application form and send me a video of why you're sending in an application. I'll then be in touch after the closing date.
To whoever is thinking about joining me,
I would love for you to have your own email address
For you to add stuff to the booking system, the calendar
To be good with words and spreadsheets
For you to do social media posts - perhaps I could send you thoughts and you can find a way how best to get them out there
To pay people's invoices
To sort travel arrangements for people coming here, it’s a ball ache I’m keen to surrender
To enjoy researching so my ideas can easily become a reality
To have a keen eye for detail
To have experience in what I need from you
To be my friend, my bouncer, my devil's advocate
I’d love for you to think outside the box to help me reach new people.
I want the job to matter to you, not like it matters to me, that'd be impossible (and an unfair request!) but for it to be a job you want to show up to
To not be pulled in a million different directions or constantly in a hurry
To not be split between other jobs
I need you to be able to identify problems but be solution focused
I need you to be a positive energy, organised, specific
To balance my chaos
To not be overwhelmed by my chaos
To ask me the questions I need someone to ask me
To be ok working with me and on your own.
I don’t mind if you’re near or far but I’d love to be with you properly sometimes, to share a cuppa, go for a walk ( and even a swim?)
I want you to think differently to me but hold values that sit hand in hand with mine:
I value loyalty, community, love, growth, honesty, fairness.
I need you to be curious
I need you to be ok with the systems I’ve got in place already so I’m not overwhelmed with learning a new system but if you know of a better way, I’m open
I want your communication to be heart-led but professional
I need you to value what I do
I want my successes to be our successes.
I don’t ever want you to feel like you’re on your own.
I have a fear that having you will take away my personal touch, I need you to help me find a way so that doesn't happen.
Most of all, I need us to trust each other implicitly. This stuff isn’t just a job, it’s my life and it’s how I feed my babies and my soul.
I hope you're out there,
Thanks for reading.
