Senior Account Manager (Print Management) – Melbourne
This candidate has scaled the heights of print management, working in a senior role with one of the UK’s largest PMC’s. While there she managed several large (and very demanding telco accounts – plus various financial services clients) and lived to tell the tale.

She and her “better half” now happily reside in Melbourne.

With a strong print knowledge profile she lives and breathes offset and digital, storage and distribution, procurement and outsourcing. Hear her wax lyrical on such matters at interview!

Senior Print & Design Sales Rep – Melbourne
Warning: Only for those employers with a creative design capability. This is the quintessential print rep – who starts with selling the design concept – right through to the printed product. “Over 20 years experience as a multi-skilled professional … in securing new business and building long-term relationships …”. These are his words, which I couldn’t’ve put better myself. With a career beginning in the design and advertising fields, he progressed into selling design and print, finding that selling both, locks the client in.

Bobst Operator – Melbourne
Calling all packaging companies!

Finding one of these is like winning Lotto! A genuine, bona fide, trade-qualified, real-life, walking, talking Bobst operator. First to see will buy.

Production Manager – Melbourne
This candidate is a dynamic “young Turk” (late 30’s is young, believe me), who has progressed up through the ranks from a pre-press background (not a bad starting point for jobs – and careers, in production), through various supervisory and managerial roles. He now finds himself No.2 in a large, sophisticated offset plant, but is keen to take control of a small to medium sized production environment, preferably in the S-E metro.

He’s got the energy, initiative and “spark”.

Technical Sales (Papers & Substrates/Inks/Digital Equipment) – Melbourne

This candidate has held a number of senior sales and marketing roles overseas and locally, mainly selling self-adhesive base-materials (for label, or digital applications), inks – and other consumables.

He could also sell into the flexo segment (substrates, equipment, inks, plates, etc).

He is a blend of technical proficiency and marketing virtuosity, a difficult juggling match, managed by very few. In other words he is not just a “techo” – but someone with good commercial and sales instincts. Melbourne-based, he could adapt to either a local sales, or take on a national responsibility.
