An opportunity has arisen for a motivated Gallery Assistant to join the Devon Guild of Craftsmen to provide a first-class experience to all of our visitors.
The Devon Guild is at the heart of the Bovey Tracy community; it is an education charity and membership organisation that aims to create as many opportunities as possible for people to enjoy and learn about contemporary craft.
Working in our galleries, the role offers variety and responsibility. This is a key role for The Guild, and would suit someone who is a self-starter, but also a team player, who has knowledge in craft, its materials and processes and is able to maximise sales through fantastic merchandising and obvious passion for what we do.
The successful candidate will have excellent customer service skills and be able to communicate effectively in person but digitally too. It would be great if you have previous retail experience, but if you are the right person it is not essential.
Duties include creating a welcoming and friendly environment, giving advice, making sales, digital marketing, opening and closing the store, merchandising and everything else necessary to run a successful commercial gallery.
If you are interested in applying please send your CV and a covering letter to Laura Wasley via the email address below.
