FAQ's

What do I need to apply?

Send us an email to jobs@flyingbark.com.au and attach your CV, Showreel and identify your area of expertise in the email Header. If your Showreel contains work where you’ve collaborated with other artists please note where you were directly responsible.

Will I get a response from my application?

Due to the large amount of applications we receive we will only contact you if we are progressing your application.

Will you keep my details handy?

Yes we keep track of applications and hopefully we can contact you again if there’s a role better suited to your experience.

Do you hire international artists?

From time to time we do however our preference is to support to local talent where possible. Often visa processing can take up to 2 months and the conditions around employing skilled overseas labour are quite strict, this can hinder our resourcing efforts.

Do you hire Interns?

Yes however we prefer only local students and we’re only able to offer Internships when the studio is not full tilt and we can ensure the best learning outcomes for our Interns.
