Required skills
·       You should be an unflappable, positive, ambitious, highly responsible and well-organised person who can manage their own time and others, with a clear career path in floristry.
·       You will be efficient, professional and have a great work ethic.
·       You will need to be physically fit and able to manage the often-intense physical demands of the role as well as flexible hours to adapt to clients’ requirements around installation times, which are often out of typical business hours.
·       Equally you will enjoy collaborating on projects and sharing leadership where a team approach is required, as well as being able to take clear direction from visual briefs from our creative director. This role also includes hiring and managing freelancers as needed for larger jobs.
·       The role would suit someone who would thrive working in a small team, who has the get go to work independently and who can bring their own personal impetus and passion for floral design to the role.
·       The studio is based in a working cutting garden: you must love the outdoors; you will be expected to pick flowers for the arrangements so you must be physically fit and up for rolling your sleeves up and mucking in. Experience growing flowers would be a great plus.
·       Due to the nature of the industry, you will need to have a flexible approach to working hours – weekend and evening working will be required as demanded by floristry events and orders; early mornings may be required for picking flowers dependent on the weather.
