Over the past few years we have successfully expanded and in the past financial year we saw growth in all regions of over 35%. To meet the demands of our customers as well as our own requirements, we are looking for the most motivated and talented employees in the market to support our ongoing growth strategy.
The role is based within our studio in Leatherhead, working with a wide array of well-known and exciting brands.
As a Traffic Manager, you will be required to ensure briefs are distributed, executed and delivered in line with our client requirements. You will work closely with our experienced Designers, Artworkers and our expert team of account and client marketing teams and will develop creative and unique solutions.
- Effectively engage with clients, to build and maintain robust relationships;
- Take detailed, yet succinct client briefings from clients from multiple sectors;
- Brief and assist our Design team, answering and where necessary escalating any specification related queries;
- Progress designs with our Artwork team to final completion, again providing support and a point of escalation;
- Act as a point of QA throughout the development stages, ensuing constructive and developmental feedback is provided;
- Where required, effectively brief and engage with our external suppliers.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
- Significant experience within a Studio environment, ideally as a Mac operator, working within the pre-press industry;
- Higher Education qualification in Graphic arts, desired but not essential;
- Approachable, with strong client and team skills;
- Pro-active with an organised approach;
- Effective time manager able to effectively prioritise and work within a busy studio environment.
- Customer Focused: Goes beyond quality, delivery, reliability and consistency - involves focusing one’s efforts on finding what a customer needs, before the customer themselves are even aware. Using this information and addressing and meeting the requirement.
- Results Focused: Ensuring you are a finisher as well as a starter; it involves measuring and monitoring progress and keeping an eye on the bottom line. It is important that when the change of pace is intense, distractions do not take over, and initiatives started are completed.
- Team Player: Commitment to the organisations’/ departments’ common goal, a focus on what is best for the business rather than suits the individual. It involves communicating, sharing and supporting and it goes much further than meeting others half way, it is about putting effort into building good working relationships, taking the initiative when others are slow and not being put off by negative responses.
