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

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.

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.
