This position involves using a POS making sales, and assisting people with knitting project choices.  You will come to know the products in the shop and what they are best used for and use that knowledge to help our customers successfully navigate our seemingly overwhelming collection of yarn and accessories.

Pay is €12 per hour bruto.  Pension and shop discount offered. Local to Amsterdam preferred as no travel allowance is offered.
