As with most emerging businesses, this role requires someone with a set of dynamic skills.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO:

• Has an eye for the Cambie aesthetic and all things visually pleasing and is able to merchandise the store, windows, pop-up events, and photo shoots with keen attention to detail.
• Can tackle the daily behind-the-scenes operations that keep things running; tracking inventory, tidying and organizing the store, packaging and ensuring online orders are fulfilled, and answering customer inquiries and emails with a personable and professional tone.
• Is creative and crafty – able to tackle any DIY project and have an appreciation for product, textile and interior design.
• Is organized, responsible and able to work as part of a team, but also independently, when required. You don’t wait around to be told what you to do, take initiative, are always thinking two steps ahead, and can execute a task from start to finish.
• Shows up on time, commits to tasks, doesn’t make excuses, and has loads of integrity and pride their role.
• Is amazing with people, has patience, empathy, and is able to communicate very well with both customers and the Cambie team.
• Is passionate and feels fulfilled in helping a business grow.
THE FINE PRINT:
This role will currently require you to work between 10-15 hours per week, which includes both Saturday and Sunday. Most of your time will be spent in the store, with possible opportunities to assist off-site at flea markets and special events.
