London's diverse and affluent economy creates a need for a number of professional services in the city. Professional printing companies provide a service to almost every sector in the capital, and they have a constant supply of employment opportunities available.
London is home to the largest financial industry in the world, and that means there is a need to produce printing materials of the highest quality. Brochures, presentation documents and advertisements are just some of the printing jobs that London's printers are tasked with on a daily basis, and that means the need for printing technicians, equipment repair workers, graphic designers and computer programmers is always being attended to by London-based recruitment agencies.
Staff working in the printing sector are often employed by major national printing companies such as Copy Shop and Print Express. However, the vast majority find employment with either large warehouse facilities or small high street operations. Online printing services where clients can design their own printed materials are growing in popularity, so a number of design, programming and sales jobs are being made available in the city as a result.
Unskilled retail staff, admin workers and production operatives working in the printing industry are often paid by the hour. However, graphic designers and programmers can earn up to £60,000 per year.
