DTP Operator recruitment agency listing

A DTP operator will use computer software to ensure that advertisements in print publishing convey a message and are well designed.

The tasks involved can vary depending on the employer and establishment. Typical roles include designing the layout of a magazine or newspaper page, editing images, choosing the right font and format, and producing graphic designs.

Qualifications in the field of computing and graphic design are preferred, although if the candidate can prove that they are capable formal qualifications may not be required. Excellent English language skills are essential. Candidates are also expected to know how to efficiently operate a number of different computer programs, such as Adobe Photoshop.

In the UK the majority of DTP operator jobs are based in London and other major cities. This is because that's where the majority of publishing houses are based. The job market is very competitive. Candidates may have to network to break into the industry by attending events such as Design Week; completing volunteer work experience programmes can also be useful. Both part time and full time jobs are often advertised through recruitment agencies.

Most salaries start at around £14,000; however experienced DTP operators and freelancers may earn in excess of £30,000.
