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.
