Office Assistant - 30 hours per week
The Little Blue Owl is looking for an office assistant to join our small team. It can be a fast-paced environment that can change at the drop of a hat, with plenty of tea and biscuits to keep us going.
We are an award winning online retailer of children’s furniture, toys, gifts and accessories. However there are now three separate aspects to the business; retail, wholesale and fulfilment. The latter is growing quickly and is becoming a large part of the business.
Initially the main focus of the role is to provide assistance to all three areas of the business;
- Process and input orders from several channels
- Pick and pack orders
- Keep up to date with stock
- Actively be involved in new product choices and ideas
- Respond to customer queries via email and telephone
- Liaising with key account customers
- Updating of the website (full training will be given)
- Able to work alone, as well as part of a team
We’re looking for someone who is an “all rounder”, can be flexible to keep up with orders, roll up their sleeves when it’s busy, and can be proactive when things are a little slower. You’ll need to have a great eye for detail, and be able to work methodically when under pressure. The Little Blue Owl is a kitchen table business, so we want someone who will become part of our extended family – someone who can share our enthusiasm for the business and designs, as well as put the kettle on. Experience with a similar role or working within a small business is beneficial, but not mandatory. Previous experience or an interest in graphic design and/or product photography would be an asset, as well as a knowledge of SEO (but again, it’s not mandatory). It’s more important to us that you have a can-do attitude and plenty of energy for the role.
This is a permanent position 30 hours per week.
