Production Assistant

Job description

Role: Production Assistant

Location: Amsterdam (mostly) / Living in the Netherlands is mandatory

Work Type: Part-Time (3-4 days per week)


We are looking for a fitness enthusiast who just so happens to be as good at managing data sheets as they are at organising everything for the studio days. 

Job requirements

Let us introduce ourselves first.

Hi! We are FunXtion, a digital fitness experience company. We provide gyms with the tools to stay relevant in this fast-paced, ever-changing digital landscape. We do this by offering them energising content and better delivery systems (e.g. apps, portals) so their members can train with them anytime, anywhere. We help some of the largest and best-known companies in the world (such as Fitness First, Goodlife and Anytime Fitness).


As a self-managing professional at FunXtion, we believe that you can make good and innovative work when you have the freedom to do it your way. This means we are looking for people who are not only passionate about their profession but who can work well autonomously and as part of a pretty cool team. Are you one of those people? Great! Because we are now looking for a Production Assistant!


When someone asks what you do for work, you say:

“I work for one of the coolest companies in the Netherlands, called FunXtion. I support the fitness production team behind-the-scenes, to make sure all the administration stuff is taken care of. Things like coming up with workout plans, I book and look after the star trainers, and then publish and distribute the content we made according to plan.”


But what you really do:

There is a little-known hero hard at work for every set, production office, and beyond: the production assistant. You’re available at any stage of the production to lend a helping hand to the team. You take ownership of the administrative tasks - anything from running errands and gathering supplies to creating engaging monthly workout circuits and fitness programs for the gyms we work with. This comes easily to you because you have a passion for fitness and the know-how to get things done.


In addition, you’re the master of:

  • Managing and optimising data sheets

  • Preparing briefings and preparation sheets for shoot days

  • Handling the phone like a pro when booking trainers and planning studio dates

  • Publishing and distributing our fitness content across all relevant channels in accordance with our content release plans


Besides your gung-ho attitude, you:

  • Love fitness. You have either studied or are currently studying a fitness-related course, like from Cios or another equivalent institute. Alternatively, you have worked or are already working in fitness as a trainer.

  • Actively listen to ensure you’ve understood the tasks and responsibilities required of you, and as a result, you can easily facilitate communication between two parties.

  • Know how to complete a wide range of daily tasks because you’re an organisational, multi-tasking, time-management guru.

  • Have excellent communication skills in Dutch and English 


And in return, you get:

  • Money - hooray!

  • A dynamic position at a fast-growing scale-up in the health and fitness industry with plenty of room for personal growth, creativity and responsibility.

  • A delicious homemade lunch every day. Think: poké bowls, soups, salads, and sandwiches - even protein shakes if that tickles your fancy. Plus, we always have a huge fruit basket and an endless supply of tea and coffee. Mmm, coffee.

  • To be a part of a close-knit team that gets the most out of themselves and you.

  • Good secondary employment conditions and free access to our digital workouts to enjoy!
