THE BASICS.

Generally required three days p/week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Approximate shift times are 7am-2pm. However, start and finish times can be outside of these hours (eg. a 6am start, or a 4pm finish).

We’re based in a warehouse in Alexandria.

A BIT ABOUT US.

We’re an established online flower business with a mission to put more smiles on more faces, for more reasons. Not just for our customers and the lucky people who receive our flowers but also for the lovely ladies and gents on our team. So, getting a good fit between what we need and what you’re looking for is really important.

 

WE THINK THE TYPE OF FLORIST WHO’LL BE RIGHT FOR OUR TEAM…

Will have (or be studying for) a Certificate 3 qualification.

Is a hard worker, quick learner, resilient and happy to work in a fast paced environment.

Is not scared of early mornings. It’s all hands on deck right from 7am every morning.

Is reliable and dependable. We look for people who are are as committed to the job as we are to them.

Gets the balance between working hard and having fun at work. While you’ll often need to keep your head down, there are also plenty of laughs to be had. We like working with people who can help create a positive atmosphere while getting the job done.

Is collaborative. Comfortable asking questions, happy getting and giving feedback. And, as you grow into the role, happy to teach and nurture newer members of the team.

Is a team player and happy to muck in with whatever needs to be done on the day, and on a larger scale as the business evolves. That could mean learning new skills, helping out on a weekend occasionally or taking the bins out with a smile when it’s not your turn!

Is handy with a calculator as we have to do a little bit of maths along the way (nothing too scary though!)

Is okay with repetition and time constraints. The nature of our work is time sensitive and we send out a high volume of flowers each day.

Is enthusiastic about what we do as a business and is keen to evolve with us.

Loves working with flowers and the positive impact they have on people – and understands the importance of each of our bunches looking great as a result
Is available during peak periods (lead up to Valentine’s Day and Mothers’ Day in particular)

CURRENTLY HIRING FOR: ADMIN / DISPATCH (JOB SHARE)

OVERVIEW

We’re an online florist with a mission to put more smiles on more faces for more reasons. We’re located in a warehouse in Alexandria, and we’re proud to have a fun and positive team dynamic. However, we operate on strict deadlines and can have very high order volumes, so being focused and hard working is essential for the success of our business. We are looking for someone to join our Admin team to help dispatch flowers and assist with customer service. This is a job share role so we are looking for someone who has a degree of flexibility and availability that works with our existing team members. This is a casual role, but ongoing, so we are looking for someone who wants to be a long term member of the Little Flowers team.

 

THE MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES OF THIS ROLE ARE

Getting our message tags printed and ready for dispatch.

Organising orders by time priority, courier type and what makes the most efficient run.

Greeting couriers and ensuring they are dispatched with their flowers on time – and maintaining great relationships with them.

Dealing with order changes and various customer queries via email, social media, and occasionally via phone.

Dealing with couriers over the phone when delivery problems arise.

Taking great quality photos of our flowers and uploading them to the website and social media.

Various other duties as they arise, eg. calendar management, ordering supplies, amending daily florist schedule and working as a team to maximise sales and manage inventory.

Making the role your own – making suggestions, improving systems and collaborating with your job share partner to evolve the role over time.

 

DAYS AND HOURS

Initially two to three days per week (across Monday to Friday). Once trained, the role will include regular weekend work (both Saturday and Sunday) and may be up to four days per week.

Rosters are planned a month or two in advance and a degree of flexibility is required, as the needs of the business and the team can fluctuate a little from month to month.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday we have a 7am (sharp) start time. Tuesday and Thursday is a little later, starting at 8am. The shift generally finishes at 1.30pm, but can occasionally be up to 3pm. 

Saturday hours are 9am – 1pm; Sunday 10am – 1pm.

Occasional cover may be needed 2.30 – 6pm Monday to Friday for holidays / sick days.

Please note it’s all hands on deck for Mother’s Day and Valentine’s, so the week (and especially the day) prior, you will be needed to muck in with the team and do what’s required to make sure the day goes smoothly. This could include evening work.

 

WILL SUIT SOMEONE WHO…

Is good with early starts. We start at 7am sharp some days, and we’ll be relying on you to be on time every day.

Is good at troubleshooting. We won’t lie, sometimes our printer breaks, the internet won’t work and we have no phone reception! The ideal candidate would take this in their stride and help us find solutions to problems as we go.

Has good time management and is able to prioritise. We have strict dispatch times for our couriers and there’s a lot to be done each day. You’ll need to be able to keep an eye on the clock as you work and make good decisions about what to prioritise when things go awry.

Has a calm and positive attitude. The Admin role is really central to operations so bringing in a smile to work and being able to stay calm and positive when problems arise is a really important part of the role.

Has good communication skills. You’ll need to do some customer service in this role, so being able to communicate via email (and sometimes via phone) in a professional and friendly manner is essential.

Is comfy with and technology. We’re an online business so things change constantly – the business evolves, systems get upgraded etc, so you need to be able to adapt with us. We use MAC computers, Photoshop, WhatsApp, Google Sheets and the usual Microsoft packages. So being comfy with those is a must.

Is organised and likes systems. Because this is a job share role, it’s essential that you keep to set systems (or set up new ones when needed) and communicate well with your team, otherwise things can get very confusing!

Is ok with some repetition. At the beginning, it’ll be a steep learning curve, but after a while the right person will be able to do this job ‘with their eyes closed’ because a lot of the processes are the same every day.  If you’re the right person for this job you’ll be ok with that.

Likes maps. Much of the courier assignment is automated, but you’ll need to be able to look at a map logically, ask yourself questions like ‘is that the most efficient route’ and also anticipate problems a courier might run into, so we can work out how to avoid them.

Is flexible. We will need you to be able to cover your job share partner in the event of sickness or holiday.

Likes working independently. Once you know the ropes you will be the only Admin person on shift, so you’d need to be comfortable with that.

Is available at key times (and flexible to work longer hours then). You’ve guessed it! Mothers Day, Valentine’s Day… these times of year are all hands on deck and we’d expect you to pitch in and be flexible about working longer hours at this time with the rest of the team to get the job done.

 

BUT IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT US
