There’s never been a better time to join The Print & Packaging People…

 

We’re Hiring!

Production Supervisor – LoveGifts.com

£22,000-£27,000 per year (including quarterly OTE)

Do you like making things? Have you ever had any professional experience or a hobby that involves making jewellery, printing, decorating ceramics or sewing?  Have you ever had an Etsy store or attended craft fairs? If you would like the chance to develop your skills further and turn this passion into a full-time career then we would love to hear from you!

LoveGifts.com is part of 3P Direct Ltd and an established personalised gift supplier. Located at our Mansfield office and warehouse, we’ve invested heavily in our web site technology and utilise the same personalisation software as two very well-known greeting card suppliers. Until recently, we’ve always outworked the manufacturing of our gifts to several UK gift manufacturers. However, we are on a mission to improve our customer experience and despatch times and are busy developing a range of luxury personalised gifts that will all be designed and made in house.

We now have a requirement for a Production Supervisor to help run our inhouse manufacturing facility. We’ve invested in some fantastic new machinery and have built a workshop in which to personalise our gifts. With a good starting salary and quarterly profit share incentive in place this is a hands-on role with great opportunity. The successful applicant will be joining on the ground floor as the gift business commences manufacturing inhouse and rolls out across several sales channels, including Etsy, NotOnTheHighStreet, Amazon and YouTube.

Working within a growing team of six people and reporting directly to the Director, full training will be provided.  This role would include personalising ceramics, engraving jewellery and pens, embossing leather goods, printing onto toys and adding personalised labels to alcohol gifts. On a daily basis, the successful applicant will be involved in the following:

  • Viewing the orders that come into the workshop.
  • Assist the Director with the smooth running of inhouse production, quality control and despatch times.
  • Assist with the personalisation of the products held in stock
  • Ensure the gifts are packaged in the Lovegifts branded packaging
  • Printing off courier labels
  • Monitor stock levels and advise when stock or printing consumables need to be reordered.
  • Work with the Director to introduce new product ranges.

Skills and qualities required include

  • A flexible and enthusiastic approach to work
  • A genuine interest in producing high quality gifts
  • Demonstrate an ability to make things and learn new personalisation techniques.
  • Communication skills
  • Ambitious with the ability to help additional operators as the production team grows.
