Job Opportunities

Work for Nel Shelby Productions, a video production company for dance and the arts in New York City.

Nel Shelby Productions, a fast-paced video production company in New York City, is in search of an Operations & Business Development Manager.

NSP is looking for a full-time, salaried person to run operations, working directly with the owner Nel Shelby. This person must exude patience, empathy, wit and confidence. They must be a big thinker, detail oriented, a collaborator, team player, fun, and have a sense of humor. This person will be the glue of NSP as the owner Nel Shelby focuses her attention on filmmaking and artistic direction of all NSP videos.

Responsibilities include: responding to inquiries, speaking with potential clients, sending proposals to potential clients, booking clients, creating contracts, sending first invoices and confirming pay before projects begin, booking videographers and editors, arranging and participating in weekly calls and monthly full-team meetings, advising on workflow, and overseeing office procedures to keep all team members accountable and all projects organized.

The Operations & Business Development Manager will work in NSP’s Manhattan office located in midtown and will help in managing a freelance team of kind and passionate project managers, editors and videographers.

Candidates should be familiar with the dance field and/or video production, with 2-5 years of related professional experience. Helpful if candidates have experience in sales, but not a must. The position does not currently include benefits, but this is possible in the future.

Nel Shelby Productions is a fun, friendly and fast-paced environment. The whole team is talented and generous. There’s a true spirit of collaboration and team meetings often feel like a gathering with friends, even though we’re checking off to-dos and troubleshooting together. Our client base is made of gifted artists who are a dream to create with. Office systems and procedures keep everyone organized while also allowing for the flexibility needed in this artistic world we live in. Best of all, Nel is kind, smart and a compassionate leader who is a joy to work with.
