A studio and production administrator at a Birstall-based print management firm has won a national industry award.

Chloe Johnson, who celebrates her fifth anniversary at Birstall-based PMG Print Management in August, has been awarded a training grant of more than £1,400 in this year’s Print Futures Awards.

The Print Futures Awards are run by The Printing Charity, the UK’s second oldest occupational charity with near 200-year history. The awards have been helping to attract and retain new talent in printing, publishing, packaging and graphic arts since 2003.

The awards offer grants to people in the industry aged 18-30, to pay for training courses to help with skills development and career progression.

Chloe, who lives in Dewsbury, was invited to attend an interview in London where she impressed the judges talking about her role at PMG and aspirations for her career, as well as explaining how the training grant would help her progress.

Chloe said: “I am thrilled to have been awarded this grant to help me further my career in the print industry.

“Having worked at PMG for almost five years, I am delighted to be given the opportunity to complete training which will provide me with the skills to progress.”

Managing director at PMG, Mike Roberts, said: “The whole team is very proud of Chloe, we’re so pleased that she’s been awarded this prestigious grant. Chloe is a great asset to our team and we can’t wait to continue seeing her thrive in her career here at PMG.

“The Print Futures Awards are a really fantastic platform for young people in the industry to learn new skills and develop and build a career for themselves.”
