It's an important role within any organisation as essentially you are creating the image of the company you're employed by and as such experienced DTP Operators are always in demand.
Your job could involve:
As well as the design element of the job, your daily duties could also include:
Hours are usually quite standard though the nature of the job often requires longer hours as the production of some material will have strict deadlines which have to be met. The opportunity to work from home is sometimes offered as a lot of the work you'll be doing is PC based though this will usually be limited to pure design roles.
Qualifications aren't formally required but they won't do your chances of landing the job any harm. There are a variety of courses available from the likes of Edexcel, OCR and City and Guilds (for example the City and Guilds Desk Top Publishing Course) and you can of course undergo training in the key software packages needed such as Quark and Illustrator. As is often the case, potential employers are looking for experience gained in a similar role so if you have some relevant experience, make sure it stands out on your CV.
Some of the skills you need to be able to display to a future employer include:
You can expect to earn between £18-25k in the early years of your career though this depends on where you're working - as a rule the financial and commercial sectors in London will be top payers. Add a few decent years' experience and you can command up to £50k with the right company. As an experienced temp you could earn anything between £14 and £25 per hour.
