16000 - 18000 gbp / year
Part time

You will be working as part of a small, close-knit team and each day is different from the last. Attention to detail and enthusiasm for art, design and good living is essential.

Our focus is on creating beautiful bespoke interiors using sustainable materials and products, thoughtfully sourced. Our projects are diverse, and inspiration is drawn from nature and the art world.

If this sounds like your sort of thing, we’d love to see your ideas, projects, or portfolio. Don’t worry, we don’t expect perfect photography or 100,000 followers, we’re looking for an original thinker who is outgoing, organised, and excited about great design and sustainability. Impress us with your up-cycling, interior design skills or any other creative project you’ve been enjoying recently.

This role will include customer service in a retail environment as well as assisting with interior design projects. Maintaining and updating displays and keeping the shop looking immaculate will be part of your day-to-day routine.

Getting to know our established clients and providing a warm welcome to new ones is an essential part of the job.
