We’re hiring! Sadly, our lovely Saturday Manager Raquel is leaving us this spring and we are now on the look out for a replacement. She has been with us since October 2015 and has made a big impact on our weekend customers and we’re very sad to see her go, but with all things in life, we must move on and this means we are now looking to find the next member of the Emporia gang. If you are a big sewing fan, are free on Saturdays and would love to work with us, then read on …
Since Raquel joined us over two years ago we have expanded our shop quite significantly; we had only just moved into the new premises in Park Mall in July 2015, and now we’ve been here for two and half years and are well and truly settled in. Back then we only had cottons and a few jerseys, and now we stock an even wider range of cottons, poplins, lawn, jersey, felt, velvet, wool, organza, chiffon, sequins, lace, fur, brushed cotton, canvas, net and oil cloth. We also introduced the Brother sewing machines in January 2017 and are now selling sewing, embroidery and overlocker machines. Clair has been super busy over the last two years designing patterns, so we now have ten Emporia patterns alongside our other independent dress patterns. And we have a much larger selection of wools and knitting too. So things have changed a great deal since the old days of the tiny shop!
Now we are looking for a seriously passionate sewist who would love to join our team; if you are free on Saturdays (and some Sundays), keen to showcase your amazing customer service and would love to get involved with helping out with our patterns, then head to the vacancy page and see how you can join our gang!
Application forms are available from the shop – the closing date for the Saturday Manager job is Saturday 17th March 2018.
