Promotion opens the door for a new apprentice at print firm
A town centre print firm is looking to take on an apprentice after promoting their trainee into a full time role.
Print Junction, based at Drum Lane, took on Brandon Larkin three years ago as a production assistant.
Since then he has worked on a project to promote customised workwear, where he created custom printed and embroidered clothing for companies.
Boss Sonja Adams said: “His apprenticeship was in customer service and he completed his course within his first year here.
“The main focus of his work was on the production of printed and embroidered workwear which requires great precision and attention to detail, as well as understanding the operation of the related machinery and IT.
“We took him on in a full-time position at the end of his apprenticeship and he continued to thrive at work, often taking on additional print finishing tasks and growing his role.”
Mrs Adams said that when the position of production supervisor came up, it was an easy decision to appoint Mr Larkin to the post.
She added: “He has stepped into his new role with confidence and is now receiving further in-house training in stock control and ordering, production planning, and management.”
The apprentice position at Print Junction will be as a production assistant, covering the areas where Mr Larkin started, and the company welcomes applications from anyone.
