Graphics Operative (Signs) – Sign Makers – Brackley, Full Time
We are looking for an experienced vinyl graphics operative to join our well established and efficient Production Department to expand our team and capacity – based within the graphics department you will be working as part of the well-oiled production team.
Accuracy, a keen eye for detail and always doing the right thing when nobody is watching are key attributes needed to maintain our high standards.
Deadlines are frequent and at times unrealistic (it is the industry we are in!), the pace is fast, work is constant, but we pair that with a good team environment and a great atmosphere!
If you are looking for a new challenge and love the buzz of a well organised department, then please send your CV and covering letter stating why you think you are the right person to fill this role. All applications are treated in the strictest confidence.
This role would suit someone who has ideally worked in the graphics industry but would also suit someone who has worked in a hands-on role and has experience with making or working with millimetre accurate and detailed work – the machines and techniques can be learned, but to master them you will need to have a creative and technical ability, a steady hand and a real keen eye for detail. We strive for perfection in every job so if this isn’t something you can achieve then this role probably isn’t for you. Attitude and passion to learn are top of the list of requirements so if this sounds like you then keep reading…
Days will include laminating and mounting using machines, hand finishing detailed finishing work like vinyl wrapping, turn over edge graphics and scalpel work. Training will be given on all machines and techniques, but you will need to be a quick learner and follow instruction.
Work is varied and you will learn a lot of new skills.
Your key responsibilities would include: –
- Creating/manipulating artwork using Adobe Illustrator ready for print.
- Producing large format printing, signs and graphics.
- Laminating and mounting prints.
- Using a Vinyl cutting machine.
- Weeding and taping up vinyl graphics.
- Attending site for graphics installs.
- Use trade tools and skills to fit all types of signage including vinyl graphics.
