JOBS AT COLOURS
Work experience and internships
From time to time, we get requests from students at schools, design colleges or TAFEs to undertake work experience. Although our intern programmes are specifically geared for recent graduates and usually commence in late October each year, to encompass the summer holiday period, we are more than happy to consider requests at any other times of the year.
Please contact us on 1300 06 99 53, and ask to speak to the Operations Manager, Ricky Jolliffe. Or you can send us an email, using the form below.
Current Position(s) Available
Digital Press Operator – January 2012
At Colours we pride ourselves on many aspects of our work, but we think that two things stand out – our teamwork and our technical expertise, especially with colour reproduction.
Are you the sort of person who would fit well into our team environment? Are you outgoing, friendly, self-motivated, but still willing to learn?
Do you experience an adrenaline rush when you complete a task on time, without error?
Have you got the guts to explain to a Sales Rep how a digital press puts toner onto paper, why the graduated tint on the cover page is showing banding, why his customer’s file is not properly set up… but then still assure him that even though the press has broken down his job will still be delivered on time?
Have you got an immaculate eye for detail? And a well-balanced sense of colour? Perhaps you would like to try this colour perception test?And if this has given you confidence in your colour perception abilities, try this much more challenging test, and tell us your results when you fill in the contact form, below.
Take the FM 100 Hue test here.Do your like your coffee extra strong, Ethiopian blend, with a proper crema, and a freshly baked croissant?
Can you dismantle the engine of a 1969 HT Holden Monaro and put it back together again? And will it still run smoothly?
Have you ever found yourself still Googling at 3am to find the answer to why your home entertainment system cannot connect to YouTube?
Do you work out twice a week at the local gym? Or do you play competition squash? Or break in wild ponies on the weekend? Have you ever sung in an amateur performance of “My Fair Lady”? Or perhaps designed your own web-page?
Have you ever watched an entire season of Star Trek TNG in one weekend? Or all six Star Wars movies back-to-back?
Do you have a current First Aid certification? A pilot’s licence? An obsession with gastronomic extravaganzas? A passion for SCUBA-diving?
Can you define Pareto’s 80-20 principle? The body-language 5/15 rule? Have you any idea at all why “the customer is always right”?
Are you open to learning as much as you can about colour, digital printing, pre-press, design, marketing, customer service, business management… ?
Your imagination is the only limit to where you might go…Perhaps you cannot truthfully answer all of the above questions in the affirmative. Nevertheless, you might still be the right person to fit in to the Colours team.
We are twelve like-minded people, with very diverse talents and experiences, but with a common goal to excel at what we do. And we would like to meet you, and perhaps have you join us.
