JEWELRY STUDIO ASSISTANT
The ideal candidate is someone who will bring organization and fresh business processes to the GRACE GOW studio and manage the daily operations in an efficient manner.
Are you a to-do list maker? Excited when things are in order and neat and tidy? Do you keep your eye on many small details at a time, and checking in on the master project schedule regularly to see where things are? Microsoft Excel is a friend, and windex-ing the white board is not a problem to do.
Then you could be the next GRACE GOW Studio Assistant
GRACE GOW is seeking a studio assistant who is ready to shine in our growing small business. There are many different genres of work – from digital, to project management (scheduling) to communications (in person, on email, on the phone). One important note – this is not a creative position, and although a love and passion for jewelry is great, it’s not a requirement. No former jewelry experience needed.
