Birmingham
Salary
Competitive plus benefits, inc. 25 days holiday, private healthcare, life assurance

Calling all Marksmen and women (with a sweet tooth).

We’re looking for a talented designer to join our Birmingham studio. But what sort of designer and what exactly does talented mean? Hold your horses, I’m getting on to it! We want a designer with ideas. No clearer? Allow me to use an analogy, possibly a bad one (at the time of writing I haven’t decided): packaging design and layout are your bread and butter, but a little bit of unexpected magic is your jam. You must be able to take a brief from packaging through to a retail campaign. You’ll be vocal – heck, even opinionated (tell me if you don’t think the jam sandwich analogy is any good!).

We’re not too worried how long you’ve been in the game or what high school you went to – just show us some magic and a burning desire to succeed.


Key Functions & Skills

Interrogate: every brief so that you can create the most adventurous solution possible.
Create: a final suite of work that fits together seamlessly as a campaign and demonstrably ladders up to the overarching concept/ idea.
Present: Your work with the confidence that comes from knowing that you have done all that you can.
Detail: ensure all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed when executing a brand vision.
Demonstrate: proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite from design and layout to retouch, as well scamping skills.
Attitude: to push the boundaries of a creative and the brief in packaging and retail design – actively encouraging the same attitude across the studio.


Team Responsibilities
• Play an active role in supporting both your immediate colleagues and those across the agency
• Challenge, colleagues and clients to push the boundaries of the brief
• Be an active participant in agency life and get involved with internal initiatives

KPI’s
• Creative work delivered on time and on brief – consistent, accurate and efficient interpretation and roll out of creative concepts across all channels/ sku’s/ media

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 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:

• Salary between £17,000 and £30,000 (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, 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.

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 artworker. It’s not a 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 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 except 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, it would be great if you had good knowledge of the graphic Mac applications, Illustrator, Acrobat – this isn’t essential though (if you come from printing press background we can teach you the computer skills).

At SGSCO, our global software engineering team don’t just develop software – we have a worldwide impact. We help global household brands own the moment when a consumer’s interest in their products turns into a desire to purchase.

SGSCO software engineers are innovators, problem-solvers, and hard-workers who are building solutions with cloud technologies, the latest Microsoft and open source stack and much more. We look for professional, highly skilled software engineers who evolve, adapt to change and thrive in a fast-paced, value-driven environment.


About the role

You will work in a modern supportive, valued and agile software development environment. Working closely with key stakeholders and third parties on prioritised business objectives you will join our fast growing and dedicated technology team. You will be part of that team that are building and designing software solutions that power an always-on collaborative platform used by a worldwide collective of thousands of talented people to deliver end-to-end marketing solutions from concept through to implementation for all our clients.

A typical day will see you in a stand-up with your awesome scrum team, pair with teammates and lead on a complex technical design task, write some tests, implement your applications, design and architect system requirements, review a pull request, mentor a teammate or group, plan and prioritise future work, work with Business Analysts on a new feature, pair with the QA team to test and debug a sprint deliverable, document your work and collaborate in a whiteboard design session.

What is essential is that you:
• Are dedicated to producing clean, testable and highly maintainable code;
• Can thrive in a collaborative working environment;
• Want to help and support more junior team members, and
• Can communicate effectively at all levels

Ideally as a Senior in our team we are looking for people that have:
• A degree/HND in a computer science, engineering discipline; or
• Equivalent software development and testing experience with a proven ability to manage and deliver software projects following full lifecycle agile methodologies.

It would great if you have experience with Cloud Technologies, particularly Microsoft Azure, or if you come from a background in graphics technology (particularly within the packaging sector) – but don’t worry if you’re not.


Benefits:

At SGSCO you’d be a key part of our global software engineering department joining one of our awesome software development teams, working under instruction from a mentor alongside analysts, testers and developers producing business critical software. We offer a good development path with a mentor to support you on your journey.

• Salary of up to £50,000 (dependent upon experience)
