St. Lightning is Hiring!
St. Lightning is searching for a part-time employee. This position is a special combination of retail associate and backend support, with the potential to grow into an assistant buyer role.
The ideal candidate will have at least 2 years of retail experience, vintage knowledge, a familiarity with the handcrafted movement and intermediate to advanced computer skills. Stellar customer service ability is a must! Priority will be given to candidates with retail math, Excel and Word experience. Shopify POS experience is a plus!
The job will begin with time spent on the floor of our brick and mortar shop, with duties including opening and closing, assisting customers, cataloguing vintage, visual merchandising and receiving stock. We have a commitment to maintaining a relaxed and personable environment with helpful and knowledgable staff. We are outgoing, friendly and great with people, and you should be, too!
**Please be comfortable working with women of all shapes and sizes on vintage denim fittings. We will train you on the specifics.
After training on the floor, a portion of your time each week will be spent supporting our growing website and assisting our buyer. This will include building products on Shopify, creating and receiving against purchase orders, selecting and editing images, writing copy and occasionally assisting with photoshoots. We need someone who’s fast on the computer, is accurate with grammar and spelling, a swift typist, and has an eye for creating cohesive and dynamic visuals and text for social media and web.
We are a small, highly creative, women-owned business and encourage our employees to offer input and contribute their special skills and interests to our ever evolving projects. We are also incredibly swamped, and our new employee will need to be a confident, mature, natural self-starter who is able to handle the shop without supervision. Flexibility, rolling with the punches, taking initiative and open communication are necessary and greatly appreciated qualities.
Starting schedule will be Friday, Sunday and every other Saturday. We can add additional shifts according to growth and availability.
We are an inclusive environment and welcome candidates of all ages, gender identities and cultural backgrounds. Please send your resume and a short letter of introduction to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review resumes on a rolling basis and will contact potential candidates for an in-person interview.
Thank you for your interest!
