WORK AT STEPHEN & PENELOPE

 

RETAIL SALES ASSOCIATE

PART-TIME (20-30 HOURS)

We're looking for a friendly, self-motivated, enthusiastic person with a love for knitting or crochet and the desire to share it.  Applicants must be able to knit or crochet and can advise customers on yarn and pattern choices.  It's not necessary to be a "master" knitter, but a good strong understanding of gauge, yarn thicknesses, and yarn requirements is important.  We'll teach you everything else you need to know!

The role in our retail shop in Amsterdam requires physical work, particularly in moving and hanging yarn and the occasional lifting of boxing and books. 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.

BIPOC and LGBTQIA people encouraged to apply.

Desired qualities:

  • MUST be a knitter or a crocheter (not negotiable)
  • proficient English and decent Dutch (spoken)
  • tidy and detail oriented
  • good with people and comfortable managing several customers at once
  • good team communication skills
  • retail display experience a plus
  • positive and self motivated

To Apply send the following to info@stephenandpenelope.com:

  • Cover letter introducing yourself
  • Current C.V.
