Calling all Digital or Lithography printing employers to “speed meet your artisan”

Printing SA in collaboration with FESPA bring you the Jamboree Week of Print’s first ever “Speed meet your artisan” event based on the world famous speed dating concept, which is due to take place on Tuesday, September 6th from 1pm to 3pm at 575 Luton Drive, Halfway House in Midrand.

Kicking off this year’s Jamboree Week of Print, this unique speed interviewing event in which 13 successful students from the Printing SA digital programme as well as 5 apprentices from the 2015 TT1 block will be introduced to prospective employers. Each company will be given the platform to spend 5 minutes with each of the 18 students.

It’s so simple; companies looking for students to employ have the perfect platform to meet and determine which of these individuals will fit their selection criteria, all in one day, allowing employers more time at work.

Members of Printing SA within the Digital or Lithography printing fields are invited to participate.

“We at Printing SA believe that this is a valuable platform for our members and trust they will find real value in participating. As a federation for printers and packagers encourage others to enter the industry and to join this body and represent the interests of printing and packaging Industry. During the two hour speed-dating event, our eighteen graduates will each be given a few minutes to present themselves. By the time they’re done, employers should have a good idea as to which of the organisations graduates’ one will want in one’s organisation,” said Steve Thombela, CEO of Printing SA.

Employers will have a first-hand opportunity to engage with them face-to-face.  Note however that seating for this event is limited. To book your spot as a potential employer, or to find out more about Printing SA and this event specifically, call Zama on 011 287 1160 or email

Prospective employers will be able to view the eighteen graduates and their profiles on ahead of the event.
