Production

Artworker (Digital Packaging - Production)

Tamworth

Job Ref
B78-GS-PA-MH
Location
Tamworth
Salary
17,000 - 30,000 DOE | plus benefits inc. 25 days holiday, private healthcare, life assurance

Are you an Artworker who wants to work on some of the most well-loved and established brands in today’s global marketplace?

As an Artworker at SGSCO you’ll accurately create artwork (sometimes multilingual) for your client (following their brand guidelines or design requirements), whilst maintaining consistency across the complete range and ensuring that all images and files are complete and ready for printing according to the printers’ specifications.

You’ll spend your time preparing accurate artworks from approved design and brief ensuring artwork interpretation is achievable within print production constraints (maximum colours, minimum font size and line thickness, print margins etc.) Rolling out artwork across complicated multilingual packs from translation documents. You’ll be responsible for ensuring line and traffic managers are kept informed of the progress of jobs, and of any impact to the production plan or deadlines.

About you:

This is not a graphic design role (you’re not design adaptation but instead creating production art for print), but it would be great if you came from a graphic design background.

We’d expect you to have relevant experience of artwork creation and manipulation to a high standard with the ability to understand and execute creative direction and instructions. It would be great if you had experience of the packaging print industry or working within a prepress environment because that would give you experience of building artwork files for multiple print processes (Litho, Flexo, Gravure, Dry Offset etc.) – however this isn’t essential, what is essential is that you’re proficient in Adobe Illustrator. The ability to multi-task and work in a fast-paced studio setting will help you to plan production to meet timelines. You’re not just working on art the whole time, so it’s key you have excellent interpersonal skills (both verbal and written)


Benefits:

• Salary between £17,000 and £28,000 (dependent upon experience)
• 25 days annual leave (+ 8 public days)
• Pension scheme
• Private health insurance


Location:

We’re based in Tamworth, not far from J10 of the M42, with a gym across the road, free parking and Ventura Retail Park just a short walk away - we can cater for most of your needs. We also have a canteen, X-Box and table football for your breaks too.


Who are we:

SGSCO is a collective of companies, expertise, and talent assembled specifically to help brands own every possible moment — in the physical world and in the digital world — when a consumer’s desire can be converted into action. We are not a holding company, we’re the team for the future, helping brands own the moment. With offices in the UK, Europe, North America and Asia, SGSCO boasts a diverse client base consisting of many well-known global brands.

Finance

Assistant Accountant - 6 Month FTC

Yorkshire & Humberside

Job Ref
HU13 FA EG
Location
Yorkshire & Humberside
Salary
£24,000 to £28,000 dependant on experience

Are you looking to gain an excellent foundation in your Finance career?

As an Assistant Accountant at SGSCO you’ll have an eye for detail, thrive from working in a varied, broad and fast paced environment, and not be phased by large volumes of data. This role is a six-month fixed term contract to provide cover for the build up to the year end and audit, however there is an opportunity that this could go permanent.

This is a great role if you are looking to utilise your range of accounting skills and expand them, as you’ll be assisting in the day-to-day running of the Finance department. No two days are the same at SGSCO, one day you could be working on cleansing data on the sales or purchase ledger, the next on sales invoicing or exporting data from our internal system into Pegasus Opera and issuing debtor reports. At month end the Finance department also needs support processing journals (payroll, accruals and prepayments) and performing balance sheet reconciliations.

About you:

If you’re a self-starter with a can-do, positive attitude and the ability to work under pressure this could be the role for you as you’re not going to be micro-managed, it’s about using your own initiative and being able to hit the ground running.
Aside from having great all-round accounts experience, your experience of Excel (pivot tables, lookups etc) and system skills (preferably Pegasus Opera) will be key for the role.
It would be great if your fully AAT qualified but don’t let that stop you if your qualified by experience.

Benefits:

• Salary between £24,000 and £28,000 (dependent upon experience)
• 25 days annual leave (+ 8 public days)
• Pension scheme
• Private health insurance

Location:

We're based at Bridgehead Business Park in Hessle. With great traffic links and free on-site car parking, our offices provide a cool, modern working environment.
