  • Other small ad hoc duties to ensure the smooth running of this small business

Applicants must have excellent organisational and customer care skills, enjoy a customer faced role, and ideally have a positive can-do approach to their work. As we are a small team we would love for this role to be taken by someone who is willing to muck in and it is really important to have friendly, approachable manner and be efficient with your time.

Full training will be given but it would be beneficial to have more than basic IT skills and be familiar with running social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram), and knowledge of using e-commerce software would also be desirable.
