UPDATED: 17th July 2022
We are looking for a graduate with a degree in:
- Surface Pattern Design
- Fashion Design
- Graphic Design
Or related subject. If you have a good practical understanding of computer garphics and an enthusiasm to develop a career in the textile design and print industry please take a look!
You don’t have to be an expert, but you will be confident working in both Photoshop and Illustrator. You will be looking to develop a career where you can make use of your skills and knowledge and interest in design and print or fashion.
You will need to be able to learn at a fast pace about the exciting world of ‘on demand’ digital textile printing and production for fashion, interiors, and events.
You will be involved in producing everything from film & TV props to fashion items and bespoke interior design solutions. You will be working with and learning from a small team where you will get the opportunity to be involved in everything from customer design briefs to managing sewing projects.
The big focus however for your first 6 months of training will be ‘hands on’ with the digital textile printing process. At one end it requires strong computer based graphic file management skills. At the other end it involves large industial wide format printer operation. This is very ‘hand on’ and includes maintenance, quality control, material handling, and colour management.
You will also work closely with sales to help develop solutions for specific customer projects. In other words. You will be on your feet about 70% of the time and you will be sitting in front of a bank of computer monitors the other 30% as you learn the whole process from end to end.
We offer a salary and role review after 6 months plus the opportunity for further development in other areas of the business. Plus you get to work with a small friendly team where there is a real emphasis on team work and role sharing to turn customer requirements into high-quality finished products.
