I work in our digital printing stream on the Truepress and iGens. My main roles involve operating the machines, checking that everything we produce meets the standard of quality our customers expect and that all the printing machines are maintained – that they’re running well and producing what we expect from them.

I’m always getting feedback on my performance as an operator. It’s always good to hear ideas on how I can improve, but it’s also nice to hear I’m doing well. You always feel confident and empowered to do your best.
