We are looking for an organised and reliable Events and/or Office Management Intern to join our team at Wingfield Digby HQ in South West London from Autumn 2017 onwards.

 

This is an exciting opportunity for someone looking to gain hands-on experience in building a luxury British retail brand.

 

The successful candidate will assist in a cross section of roles, so will play a vital part in the business during the busy shooting and Christmas season.

 

Candidate requirements:

  • Able to demonstrate responsibility and initiative
  • Articulate and well presented
  • Show an entrepreneurial flair
  • A reliable brand ambassador
  • Willing to get stuck in
  • Able to work some weekends over big shows with days off in lieu (desirable but not essential)

The successful candidate will take a hands on approach within the office including packaging up orders and day to day client liaison. Retail wise, this will include assistance with stock management and sales analysis; Events wise, it will include pre-event planning (accommodation, transport, stock etc) and attendance at some events (stand decoration, sales, greeting customers etc).

 

In addition, the intern may be able to work on social media, e-marketing and photography if of interest.

 

This paid role will start at the beginning of September and the initial contract is for up to 4 months. The internship duration is ideally full time for 8-12 weeks. However, if full time commitment is an issue, we will make exceptions for the right candidate. For an exceptional candidate who proves themselves during this time, there is the potential to become a full time employee.
