YOU'VE GOT TALENT AND POTENTIAL? GREAT... WE'RE HIRING!
Letchford has an opening for a Junior to Midweight Photofinisher. Although our clientele is world wide, we base ourselves near the bayside in Queensland for the relaxed lifestyle and balmy winters where creativity flourishes. After all our work is different from many jobs in the print industry, we don’t need to be in busy commercial environments, and it isn’t making brochures, advertising or repetitive, so we choose to create in a culture where creativity can flow, refresh and be rewarded.
Letchford is renowned in the circles in the know for producing some of the most unique books anywhere in the world. Our popularity requires us to grow our team to accommodate increased demand. We have been approached many times to move our base overseas, but we are committed to furthering the careers and opportunities for creative professionals in Australia, after all it is the talent and loyalty of our current Designers, Photo Finishers, Suppliers and Manufacturers that have bred the loyalty of our Clientele and made this business the success it is now.
We are not just looking for any photofinisher. Our work is very heavily photography centric, and based on Taschen Style Books as well as unique printed Works of Art. We want someone who can infuse passion into photographic images and knowledge of art forms other than just photography to add depth to the final product. Someone with beliefs and willing to work to see them come alive.
We make products based on fine art photography, so photo manipulation, finishing, retouching, lighting, colour are essential. Of course we use all of the CS photography based applications, so a sound knowledge of and experience in CS and Mac will be invaluable in ensuring our designers work reproduces in the best possible light.
We are hoping to find a person who can do most of these skills from the start, however because our work and style is so unique, it is rare to find someone who comes to us with a complete set of skills to be able to produce our work immediately, so salary will be totally negotiable to suit the responsibilities able to be handled. To ensure the best career and salary opportunities are fully available, we are willing to train and invest and promote as skills increase.
We are also looking for an beginner level intern to train in our unique methods.
