Work at Frankie and Swiss!

edit: application close this Wednesday 2nd October 

With Kate, our current printer, heading off to the Northern Territory to live, we're on the look out for another person to join our team!

“We are looking for a well organised and responsible individual to join our fun yet hardworking team to operate “Florence”, our digital textile printer. “Florence” is our large format printer that prints directly onto bolts of natural fibre fabrics using water based pigment inks that are eco-friendly, safe and free from nasty chemicals and fumes. We print in our light filled South Yarra studio and run an environmentally gentle printing practice.”

We are seeking the following in our printer operator:
-          A real interest in digital textile printing and a passion for print making
-          Ability to learn new software applications (Flo’s specific image processing software)
-          Excellent Photoshop & Illustrator skills
-          Knowledge in colour/colour management would be highly regarded
-          Proactive decision maker, ability to troubleshoot and be solutions based
-          While this position reports to the print manager, you must be able to work unsupervised and have the ability to work to a daily schedule
-       Min 4 days, preferably 5, from 10am to 530pm. Sometimes earlier, sometimes later. 

You’ll ideally have some print experience either in paper printing or screen printing and including the attributes above, you will be driven by pride in your work, the drive to achieve and to solve challenges, can multi-task and manage multiple production tasks at one time and find reward in positive client feedback. 

Daily activities include:  
-          Preparation and layout of artwork files for print
-          Prep printer for daily printing and fabric changeovers
-          Fabric cutting using scissors and rotary cutters
-          Diligently and carefully maintain the printer, which can include dealing with ink
-          Care and attention to detail in monitoring the quality of the fabric as it is printed
-          Troubleshoot and report on the printer at the end of the day
-          Ability to move and load large rolls of fabric of up to 15kg

(Oh, and we are a PC based studio (yes, yes, we know...!) utilising Adobe Creative Suite CS6 and Creative Cloud)

So if this sounds like something up your alley, please send your resume and covering letter to Jacqui:
Look forward to meeting you!
