KKP is Hiring Our FIRST Part-Time Employee!!
I am just ecstatic to finally announce the big news that Kyle Kelley Photography is hiring!! After much question, thought, prayer + consideration, I have decided to link arms with someone who will add value to my life + business by transforming this one-woman show to a small team. Kyle Kelley Photography just celebrated four years of business + I am excited to move forward into the next phase of entrepreneurship. In the past year my husband + I have welcomed a baby girl + in the fall we will be welcoming another one! I have hit maximum capacity + feel that I am at a place where the workload is beyond my ability as one person. I am eager + excited to hire an Office + Studio Assistant, a part-time position, that will help to efficiently move this business forward!
Applicants must be self-starters, motivated workers + eager to learn. As the Office + Studio Assistant, you will be involved in the daily work of a photography business: corresponding with clients via email + phone, scheduling sessions + meetings, fulfilling orders, organizing + sending out galleries, drafting contracts + invoices, keeping office supplies fully stocked, running personal + business errands, managing client folders, as well as learning office + studio-specific software + tasks.
This position is an office position only, not a shooting position. If you are an aspiring photographer or know how to work a camera, that is wonderful, but not required for consideration. I may or may not expand this position to include photography training in the future, but nothing is set in stone.

Someone who is kind, has an out-going personality + positive attitude
Someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done + contribute to a team
Good knowledge with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word + Microsoft Excel
Can handle + keep order with calendars
A working knowledge of Photoshop, Lightroom + social media programming is a bonus
Personal/administrative assistant experience is a huge bonus
Someone who is interested + willing to assist at sessions both in-studio + on location (may include occasional Saturdays)
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN:
The big + little things required to keep an office + studio running smoothly

The position will begin August 1, 2019
The compensation is $10-$13 per hour based on experience
