Are you an Artworker who want 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.

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)

Proof Reader (Digital 3D Renders)

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

At SGSCO you’ll check 3D digital renders to make sure they are being produced to the brief supplied; this means adhering to all internal processes in place for 3D creation and dispatch. You’ll monitor and record any QC errors on the system feeding back to production team and provide input into development of QC process based on client needs.

This role isn’t just looking at text, it’s more about the 3D renders. It’s not a typical Quality Control role either, as you need the ability to interpret a brief.

About you:
Due to the nature of the role previous experience of Proof-Reading or Technical Quality Control on digital artwork is needed. We’d need you to be a good communicator as you’ll be feeding back any errors you’ve found, if they’re from more junior staff then we’d expect you to support their development with coaching/training to help them succeed.

A keen eye for detail with the ability to multi-task and work in a fast-paced office setting is a must!

It would be great if you had good knowledge of Adobe CS applications, Illustrator, Acrobat and/or 3D Software – this isn’t essential though. The same as working in a digital 3D production environment, would be great if you have done previously, but isn’t an absolute necessity.


Benefits:
• Salary between £20,000 and £27,000 (dependent upon experience)
• 25 days annual leave (+ 8 public days)
• Pension scheme
• Private health insurance
• Life Assurance (up to 3x Annual Salary)

Location:
We’re based in Tamworth, not far from J10 of the M42, with a gym across the road, onsite 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.

Pre-Screening
The following pre-screening checks are required, if you are successful in your application:

Artworker

Yorkshire & Humberside

Job Ref
HU1 AW BS MALT
Location
Yorkshire & Humberside
Salary
Competitive

Are you an Artworker who want 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:

• Competitive Salary
• 25 days annual leave (+ 8 public days)
• Pension scheme
• Private health insurance


Location:

We’re based at The Maltings in the heart of Hull, with onsite parking and a high end, fully equipped facility, it’ll be the best office you’ve ever worked at! With a break area containing pool tables, X-Boxes and table football, we have just about everything you need onsite, and what we don’t have is just a short walk away in the City centre.

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.
