Are you a dedicated middleweight or senior Retoucher, or are you an aspiring Retoucher looking to further your career? Would you love to join a growing and innovative Midlands agency and use your skills on luxury automotive brands?

The Company

Our client is a new type of agency, with a specialism in luxury automotive brands.

There has been a tremendous amount of development going on over the past decade and Birmingham has now been named one of the top 10 cities in the world by Rough Guide. However, if the city isn't appealing the office is an easy commute from many beautiful villages and suburbs such as Solihull and the popular towns of Warwick, Stratford Upon Avon and Leamington Spa.
