 Currently hiring: Junior Florist / Administrator

The basics

  • Four days p/week, with the likely mix eventually being 3 days on flowers, one day on admin (initially four days as a florist while you learn)
  • Days will include Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • This is a casual role initially but we expect it to evolve into a permanent part time position. We’re looking for someone who wants to be a long term member of our team
  • As a florist you will…
    • Go to market to buy flowers for the day (up to 2 times p/week)
    • Make and wrap our pretty bunches
    • Help keep our studio space running like clockwork
  • As an administrator you will…
    • Get our orders ready for dispatch and deal with our lovely team of couriers
    • Chat to customers via phone and email as needed (we use a Mac)
    • Help out with social media

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 person who’ll be right for this role…

  • Is either studying at TAFE, recently qualified or has hands on experience with flowers and the flower market
  • Is a hard worker, quick learner 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’re looking for someone who is 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’d love someone 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 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
  • Has customer service experience and enjoys dealing with people
  • 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 – you’ll need to for market
  • Lives not too far away – we’re based in Alexandria, so the logistics need to work for you
