Who we are looking for
This is a great opportunity for someone that has some previous experience (ideally a few years) in a production environment. Someone who performs well under pressure and is hungry to learn and grow with us. A proactive mindset and a positive demeanour is a must, as well as the ability to multitask and support teams across multiple projects.

We want you to be comfortable and proud every day of the week and have created an open and inclusive environment where you can bring your whole self to work.
