18 months ago the company entered into a distribution agreement with a London-based
furnishings company, Watts of Westminster and is currently in a period of growth. All
our products are printed to order, and whilst we have a range of standardised products

marketing materials.

The preparation of image print files for submission to our printers
The preparation of Purchase Orders for our printers and finishers
Monitoring the production process of each job, ensuring that deadlines are met
The creation of ‘product sheets’ for each new standard product, containing precise details such as measurements, drop layouts and technical specifications
Preparing visual elevations to support our sales team

IT skills, specifically Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office (all Mac based)

Methodical way of working

Knowledge or experience of the interiors / design / print industry
Experience of working in a creative environment

Location:

The studio is based within the Director’s home, in a barn conversion in the village of Edge
(GL6 6NJ). Although it is possible to commute by public transport, we are based in a very
rural location and therefore applicants should consider travel arrangements before
applying.

Closing date for applications: Friday 15th September

Salary: Negotiable, dependent on experience
