Fashion Vacancy : Junior Personal Assistant

Fashion Vacancy :  Junior Personal Assistant

StyleSociety® has a three-month contract opportunity for a junior personal assistant.

This is a three-month contract which has a potential for permanent employment for the right candidate who displays enthusiasm, initiative and passion for the work.

First and foremost, I should highlight that if you are keen to apply for this position, please make sure you tick all of the boxes below before sending in an application, in other words – ‘no chancers please’. 

Please bear in mind that this is not exclusively a fashion position, only candidates with strong creative, social, and organisational skills will be considered.

This post requires a candidate who is flexible and able to adjust to working within ‘personal and fashion’ environments.

Creative thinking and problem-solving are fundamental as we push the boundaries of fashion and creativity. If you’re up on all the latest trends, have the most beautiful Instagram feed, can work your way with a camera and can spot a Chanel or Valentino from miles away, then this position is for you.

This is an opportunity to work alongside me, assisting in the branding, marketing and planning of my events; and, for the creatively savvy, engaging and assisting with my social. You should be a strong writer, with extensive knowledge of The Web and social media marketing, and assist the brand in getting much-needed visibility. You will be required to assist with various fashion related projects and represent my brand at major fashion events.

But also, be prepared to walk the pugs, make tea and fetch laundry! Not always glamorous –  so you must be willing to work! If you’re not an animal lover, please do not apply!
