Job opportunities at Imago

Senior Production Controller - French speaking

Imago is looking for a Senior Production Controller to take up a new position based in Thame, Oxfordshire to work alongside our French office.   As the role will involve dealing with French colleagues and clients, we’re looking for someone with fluent French.  The ideal candidate will be someone with solid colour book production experience, good technical knowledge who has perhaps started their career with a publishing house in France and is now located in the UK. 

The emphasis for this role is production as we have a French sales team dedicated to sales activity but, as always with Imago positions, it is client facing and does require someone with good customer skills.
