– Responsible and reliable

Work experience

We are always looking for new people. Work experience at Sew Over It is typically an admin based role and can involve everything from helping out in the shop, assisting Mollie with our online shop orders or working with Holly to create beautiful visual merchandising displays – and sometimes a little bit of sewing!  We need interns to work in both branches (Clapham and Islington), typically a four day week (Tuesday-Friday) which is split evenly. So that the placement is worthwhile for both parties, we don’t take anyone on for less than a month. Our work experience placements are unpaid but we are happy to cover the cost of travel within London.

As a thank you for helping us out, you will be able to take the classes (if there is space) in the evenings or weekends for the duration you are with us.

If you are interested, please email [email protected] with a CV and your availability.
