3 Vacancies – Retail, Wholesale, Liberty

Merchant & Mills is looking for three new members of staff across 3 locations. We have a retail shop within Rye where our mail order business operates from, as well as the sewing classes. We have a concession within Liberty London which has recently opened, which is like a smaller version of our Rye shop. Then we also have a ‘wholesale depot’ where all wholesale orders get dispatched from. This also operates as our main office, or ‘HQ’.

 

1. Liberty London Concession – Part Time, 16 – 25 hours a week (must be able to work weekends).

Working from the pristine new store, you will be surrounded by beautiful cloth in an enchanting atmosphere. As part of the crack team, the winning applicant will share responsibility for taking care of customers and maintaining our high standards of presentation and display.

A great knowledge of fabrics and dressmaking is essential. It is desirable to have worked with our patterns before. Good retail experience and muscles for hoisting rolls of cloth will be welcomed.

This is a part time position – you must also be able available to work weekends, weekdays and evenings. Hours will work on a varied shift basis, so flexibility is key. Salary – starting at the national living wage.

Training will be given within the Liberty store by the Merchant & Mills team and you will also go through a Liberty induction.

  • What excites you about working for Merchant & Mills?
