- Casual, but with a view to evolving into a permanent part time position. We look for people who want to be long term members of our team
- Generally required three days p/week, covering at least two of the following: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But there is potentially some flexibility on this, tell us what you’re looking for!
- Starting times are 5am for market or 7am for a non-market day, finishing generally before 2pm

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, perhaps most importantly, 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 and even earlier if it’s your day to go to market
- It’s critical to our business that our team members are reliable and dependable. We look for people who 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!)
- The nature of our work means that there are repetition and time constraints, so you’d need to be okay with that
- Knows a bit about our business, is enthusiastic about what we do and what we stand for and wants 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)
- Is comfortable driving a van to market
- Lives not too far away – we’re based in Alexandria, so the logistics need to work for you
