But this means we have an immediate vacancy. We are now seeking a highly experienced, personable and friendly full-time sales manager to help Bridie and me run our shop. The ideal candidate will demonstrate dedication, proven retail experience, a tremendous flair for visual merchandising, a keen attention to detail and will love working with people and customers, in a beautiful shop... with a significant media presence.

Juggling a million customers and pressing problems, at the same time as being prepared to work strange hours from time to time, and make the shop look stunning at all moments AND.... to make all of the above look effortless... is not a job for the faint hearted or inexperienced. But for the right person, it's a great opportunity.
We have a lot of very exciting plans in store for 2014 and 2015 and we would love to hear from you. Please email your CV and covering letter to Bridie Hall, using the contact form on the website here, by 12 noon Friday 7th March; interviews will be held in London on Wednesday 12th March.
