Welcome to our Studio
Are you truly passionate for a creative industry that is highly personal? Are you the sort that has a great humour, energy, creative flair and even massive passion for hospitality? Then I would like to hear from you!
BUT before you apply, make sure you read about what’s it like to work here at ANNA WANG?
What’s it like to work in the ANNA WANG crew of amazing stylists, florists, assistants, coordinators and overall dream makers? Truth be told pretty crazy is probably what most of my crew will tell you! Between all the number of events and weddings we do each week, the preparations that are required to be done before we can execute on the wedding day, and the amount of paperwork required; it’s often a madhouse here. Were you expecting otherwise?
That’s probably one of my biggest failings! Not being able to say “no” to a client creates an environment that I want to be able to deliver anything that is designed for their event or wedding, even when its physically impossible and creatives ways to execute my crazy plans (when I am allowed to). So you’ll often find the crew is asked to go above and beyond, and we certainly do and I love my team for it.
Even though I am pretty vocal at times.
That’s our number 2 focus – to create these amazingly wonderful experiences for each event and wedding we are involved in. Our number 1 focus is having wonderful experiences for our clients, nothing is too hard nor should there be anything that we can’t do. I think it’s an ethos I developed from my years starting up the one-stop-shop concept called O’My Gosh where we essentially a wedding retail concept with everything in house, like now but smaller scale.
Couples would come to us and everything would be handled for them. And it’s what I love being able to do, even though ANNA WANG didn’t start as a wedding planner, we wanted to maintain work and family balance right after our daughters. But it was still engrained in me to provide extra service of assisting couples and clients in planning the entire event because after all I still maintained contact with wedding vendors and event companies.
So yes we are a crew that will go above and beyond and most things will not be too hard.
One thing I’ve learnt in my time in business and having a multitude of staff, interns, trials and curious people that come through here is this: most people can say whatever the hell they like about their skills, and they can sing themselves ballets of might feats. But there is a small number of people that are truly what they say they are or have.
So rather than just believe in a formal interview process, or phone chats and resumes, I first start with making sure the right personality comes through the door. That’s the most import thing for me; having a crew with the right mentality, common sense, drive and creative passion rather than just “skills” because I believe skills can be taught or picked up. So long as you have common sense, though it is an uncommon trait, and creative passion then we should be good.
Yes I do have crew members that are qualified and experienced, but I also equally have team members who have come in with zero experience and skills and they would have gone through an extensive internship with me. Extensive in that it is long, hours aren’t short and interns start from the bottom. This isn’t designed to have free labour or take advantage of fans, and I understand it can be construed as such, but it allows me to ensure the person has the right attitude, drive and passion. Without these I have found there isn’t longevity or the person is not in the industry/role for the right reasons.
The Event Packdown Crew provide the muscles and backbone of our events by supporting our florists and styling crew. This is a great role that combines physical and design work as it’ll give you exposure to the styling of the events and weddings we do.
You will be working to pack down events mainly but there are opportunities to set up events.
The Event Packdown Crew position is a casual role that requires the successful applicant to be hands on at event setups and pack downs as well as pre-project preparation of equipment. The successful candidate would be a hard working problem solver, proactive and enjoy being onsite at events.
Pack down occurs after the events and usually starts between 11:00pm – 02:00am, depending on the nature of the pack down.
For those who are able to drive, you may be allocated to pick up the van/trucks at our office at the start of the pack down, with other crew members to meet on site.
There are at times when we’ll need you to join the day crew for either pack down or event setups.
