The Ideal candidate For Grahic Designer

You have a steady and methodical approach to work, a good eye for detail, and are interested in design and print production. You’re familiar with the way a small, busy print studio operates, and are happy to multi-task - quickly switching between jobs as workflow demands. When you spot problems, you are always willing to step in to keep things moving, even when that means trying something new.

You’re an experienced user of Adobe Creative Suite, in particular InDesign. You relish the idea of developing new skills and are not phased getting to grips with unfamiliar software tools. You like to see tasks through, from start to finish, and see yourself as a genuine team player.

Please note that whilst a maternity cover ther is every chance this will become a full time role.

Please let the company know that you found this position on this Job Board as a way to support us, so we can keep posting cool jobs.
