Careers at Sew Over It

Sunday Shop Assistant

We are looking for a shop assistant to work in our Clapham & Islington shop on Sundays. This would involve prepping for classes, welcoming the customers for classes, serving customers in the shop, keeping the shop tidy and processing online orders.

Although the regular weekly hours are on a Sunday, there is likely to be more work in during the week to help during busy periods and to cover staff holidays so we are looking for someone who is flexible.

Required skills:
Great customer service skills
Retail experience
Responsible and reliable
A can-do attitude
Eye for detail
An interest in sewing and fabric

The hours will be Sundays 9:30am – 2pm in our Clapham shop, with the rest of the day until 5.30pm spent in our Islington shop. The rate is £9.75 per hour.

If you are interested in this position please email your CV and a BRIEF statement on why you would be good for the position to [email protected] Please put Sunday Shop Assistant in the title. The deadline for applications is 29th March 2018.

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 Lisa 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.
