Studio Support Role

by Ellen Wundersitz, September 2021

Studio support / admin assistant required at SpaceCraft Joinery, Strathalbyn.

• Award-winning, family-owned business
• Team environment; opportunity to rise
• Based 45 min from Adelaide

Would suit someone looking to re-enter the workforce and grow into a new role.


Our Studio Coordinator, Karen is so flat out helping Bre and Nathan manage their design projects that we are now on the hunt for an administrator to support the team. We’re looking for a natural communicator, with an appetite for detail and hard work who doesn’t need their hand held constantly.

Whilst this casual role will start out with just 6 to 10 hours per week, it’ll be up to you to make yourself indispensable, and the role and hours will naturally grow.

About you.

The role of studio support is a multi-faceted position. You will ply your people skills as a front of house / concierge and key coffee maker as well as applying your administrative experience and organisational skills with bookkeeping, data entry, preparing award submissions and keeping the office and kitchen stocked and tidy.

The person we are looking for would ideally have experience:
• Making a mean latte (definitely);
• In the residential construction or the interiors industries (this would be advantageous); and
• General bookkeeping and office administration (not critical but certainly a plus).

You will also require:
• a driver’s licence;
• good communication skills (particularly in the written form);
• a friendly, positive personality; and
• high self-motivation.

It could ideally suit:
• a mum keen to get back into the workforce;
• a design student looking to get a foot in the door; or
• a frustrated office administrator looking for something with more variety and creativity.

Based at our studio and workshop in Strathalbyn, you will work very closely with our design team, once you know us and you’ve got the hang of our systems, we will rely on you to use your initiative and just get on with what needs to be done. (And there’s a long list.) That said, we’re not after a lone wolf and you’ll be expected to play nicely with our small, happy team of 14 people.

We will count on you to keep on top of all the things that are vital to keeping our business running, like payroll, superannuation, invoicing and accounts payable, as well as doing the housekeeping.

Frankly, yes, that means you’ll be getting the coffees, keeping the kitchen tidy and dusting the showroom. But you’ll also be getting a wealth of experience and a secure foothold in a business with an enviable reputation and a sustainable future.

So, if you’re happy to apply some elbow grease as well as your intellect and you prefer country air to Light Square, call us right now for further details. You won’t find a more inclusive workplace.

About us.

Our small team is treated like extended family and our people tend to stay with us long-term, growing with our business in skills and opportunities for development.

We’re a tight knit team and we don’t hire hastily: if we offer you the job, it’s because we believe you’ll be with us for the long haul.

If this sounds like the kind of team you want to join, call our Managing Director, Ellen, or email your application to

The wage rate will be as the federal Clerks Award [MA00002]. A detailed position description is available on request.

Unfortunately, we will only be able to respond to the applicants on our short list.
