Production Controller - Catalogue at JP BodenAs a direct clothing brand, our catalogues are our shop window. We’re looking for a Production Controller to ensure that everything is tickety-boo before and after our adult catalogue goes to print. Boden is now a global brand, with dozens of different catalogue versions mailed across the UK, US, France, Germany and Austria each year. Your job will be to ensure that all pages in all versions are accurate and that schedules are met.
This is not a job for the fainthearted: as well as being responsible for managing the repro process and colour accuracy of the adult catalogues, you will also be a stickler for deadlines, maintaining the critical path. Communication and negotiation is key as you will be working closely with external suppliers as well as internal departments. There will be lots of proofreading too, so you’ll need to demonstrate excellent attention to detail. You will also be responsible for project managing of other print projects from concept through to final production.
With a minimum of 3 years’ experience in print production, incorporating experience of managing a direct report. You’ll have knowledge of offset web and sheet lithography, gravure and digital print processes and/or colour management experience. With press passing responsibilities in the UK, US and Poland a driver’s licence is advantageous. Knowledge of fashion is also desirable, but not essential.
If you’re still reading and feel that you can tick all above boxes whilst also demonstrating flexibility, initiative and knowledge of the Boden brand, please submit your application.
