3rd Rail is a multifaceted screen printing studio providing a wide variety of services including garment printing and customisation, fine art editioning, experiential live print and an open-access facility across two sites in South London. The business is currently focused on growing new startup venture Print Social, an online garment pre-sale platform designed to empower creators by offering a sustainable method of selling T-shirts through campaigns with zero upfront costs.

We are looking for a highly organised individual with a drive for entrepreneurial thinking and excellent customer service skills to carry the Print Social brand forward. Our aim is to grow quickly, so it is important that the candidate can employ a creative approach to user acquisition through direct sales outreach and marketing.

This is a great opportunity for an ambitious self-starter to join an early stage startup and be an integral part of building something new, with prospects of moving into a more managerial position in the long term.

Benefits include the potential to earn commission on sales, as well as 50 hours of print time to use in our brand new, 4000sqft studio with a free/discounted material supply and a discount across all Peckham Levels businesses.
