Job Description

So who said print was dead?

We are having crazy post-pandemic growth and it's time to add a new member to our friendly team in Watford so we are looking for an experienced Artworker/Digital Print Operator & Finisher to join us.

The ideal candidate will be someone who has excellent all-round experience of working in a small or medium-sized print business running digital colour presses, large format printers and finishing equipment. If you have artwork skills then you will also get a chance to work in our studio using the latest Adobe Creative Suite software on a Mac.

We are a family run business with a close-knit team who we look after very well. You will be responsible for running our Xerox and Konica Minolta digital presses, HP Z6 large format printer and operating finishing equipment such as the guillotine, collating machine, booklet maker, creasing machine and laminator.

A keen eye for detail will be crucial to spot errors in the print before it gets to the client and you get extra bonus points if you have experience of Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop) so that you can manipulate customer files to make them print-ready.

Key Skills & Experience

  • Ideally 2 to 5 years experience in running digital presses & finishing equipment
  • Experience of working to tight deadlines whilst remaining calm and composed
  • Good problem-solving approach when encountering issues with print jobs
  • High attention to detail and quality control
  • Ability to multi-task and prioritise urgent/more important jobs

There will be plenty of opportunities for career progression within the business and you will be working in a great relaxed environment while being part of a very friendly team. This is an exciting time for our business as we take advantage of the post-pandemic growth opportunities so there has never been a better time to come on board.

If you want to be part of the journey please apply with a covering note explaining why you are a great match for the role.
