You may also be required to deliver some local jobs.

To be successful in this role, you will have experience working as a print finisher and using programmable machinery, such as a guillotine, folding machine and saddle stitching line. You take a steady and methodical approach to work, and have a good eye for detail.
An interest in mechanics and how machinery works would be an advantage, as is a full UK driving licence.
This is a physically active role and you'll need to be able to stand for long periods. You'll be working as part of our Production Team but will be undertaking work on your own most of the time. You should be able to carry out simple addition and multiplication to keep on top of your work.
