That sounds suspiciously like "the guy who runs the copy machine".  I should know, because I've done that very thing for the last 20 years, still doing it (a little more advanced now with typesetting and printing, but it's still a photocopy process onto paper), and in all that time, my job title was always some variation of "Document Production Specialist".  
How to become one?  Apply for jobs that require you to work with copy machines and printers.  It's not a glamorous job, but it has paid the bills so far...

Google on Document Production Specialist UK
and I get this as top hit:

http://www.indeed.co...tion-Specialist-jobs

Edit: After the attorney takes his $500/hr out of the retainer there's another line in the statement that says
"Office Costs"

that's probably for the Document Production Specialist and similar.  :)

Yes, that's exactly my experience as well.  The companies I worked for were basically outsourced copy shops.  Law firms would send us boxes of evidence or files and we would copy it all and send it back.  We had 3 shifts with 8-15 people per shift, and many law firms had their own department as well (chained up in the basement... just kidding). 
Training was pretty easy; besides how to run the copier, every shop had their own preference on how the actual documents were handled, how to use the drilling and cutting equipment, what the quality standards were, etc.  I worked with many people of all stripes, probably the most diverse workplaces I've ever worked at.
