The Customer Service and Production Administrator will need to be able to manage 100 plus job bags at any one time. It's not complicated but it does require a switched on person there’s a lot of customer relations between both suppliers and customers; the role is the middleman between the two so it is for someone that has some experience and confidence in customer service with plenty of attention to detail.

The right person will have:

  • A sharp eye for attention to detail
    • Analysing supplier order acknowledgements for accuracy
    • Checking artwork approvals for accuracy, typos, mistakes etc.
  • Great communication skills both verbal & written
    • Having the confidence to deal with suppliers & customers by email & telephone
  • Numerate
    • GCSE (or equivalent) Maths & English grade C or above

    • The job is heavily reliant on email communication
    • & an industry specific management system
  • Tenacity
  • Problem solving skills
    • Learning the intricacies of the industry, of print, of managing couriers
  • Ability to multi-task
    • A busy month will have 100 orders at various stages of production

    • This position is the link between our customers and 50+ suppliers, it requires relationship building with customers, suppliers but also the rest of the team in Sales, Design & Accounts.

This is a busy & demanding role that follows a process but every day either suppliers, customers, couriers, customs, or even the weather will throw in a curve ball that needs to be solved by working with the supply chain.

The successful candidate will be asked to join an industry specific training academy to learn about the industry, products and print processes to help them be most effective.

Industry knowledge or experience within marketing or print would be an advantage but is not necessary, we will train the right candidate in everything that the role requires, recruiting the individual that demonstrates the right attitude and has the necessary skills.
