From March onwards I will be looking for some interns to work in the studio.
What is involved:
This will be a voluntary role and will involve blocking and sewing of hats and hair accessories, dealing with and packing up orders, post office runs, assisting to make bridal accessories, helping at client consultations, assisting at photo shoots and any other ad hoc duties that may pop up.
What you will gain:
You will learn hat making and sewing skills, gain valuable experience for your CV of working at a fashion accessories business, learning how a fashion accessories business operates on a day to day basis and an excellent reference from me for future employers.
Breakfast/lunch will be provided plus as much tea/coffee/ juice as you can drink!
Who should apply:
This is a perfect opportunity for any fashion, textiles and millinery students or anyone thinking of setting up business themselves but would like to gain a bit more experience.
Millinery skills are not essential as they will be taught, but basic sewing skills are essential – in particular hand sewing.
You should also be punctual, hardworking, enthusiastic and not mind dogs as this little guy hangs out in the studio everyday- he is super friendly 🙂
How to apply:
To apply please send a current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘intern’
Look forward to hearing from you!
