As much as I would love to (and often try to), I can’t do everything! I have been realising this more and more lately and so I’ve made the decision to hire someone. It’s a big step – up until now it’s just been me and my husband building the business and it’s always hard to let someone in, but we know if we find the right person it will be a really positive step for the business.
We are looking for a very special person – someone with creativity, an eye for design/styling, attention to detail, enthusiasm for the wedding/event industry and a positive attitude. Experience is not necessary, although if you have had hospitality or administrative experience this will be very useful. Most importantly we are after someone with an excellent work ethic. Events are not as glamorous as they might look, and we want someone who, like us, is happy to get their hands dirty to turn our clients’ flights of fancy to reality!
At this stage work will be intermittent – you may be required for anywhere between 2 – 4 weekends during the months of October to April, and on an ad hoc basis over the remaining months of the year for winter events, bridal fairs and styled shoots. There will be physical work involved, such as moving furniture and boxes, and event days can be very long and tiring. There may be some administrative work required from time to time such as preparing quotes, answering emails, liaising with vendors and meeting with clients. We are looking for someone who will take a genuine interest in the business and potentially take on a bigger role further down the track.
We are willing to consider anyone as long as they have the right attitude – whether you are a student, someone with a full time job looking to pursue a passion for events, or maybe a stay-at-home mum wanting some casual work, if this position excites you we want to hear from you! Even if you can’t be available all the time we’d still love to hear from you as we may consider taking on more than one person. Please send your CV and a covering letter setting out the reasons why you believe you are the right person for this position to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 5pm on 12 September 2014 with the subject “Job application”. We can’t wait to hear from you!
