Group : Retail Wholesale Jobs
Do you enjoy people? Do you like to play? Do you like to work? We need to add one more great person to our growing retail team!
We are an independantly-owned specialty toy store with a particular emphasis on eco-freindly, educational products, and the arts and sciences. We have been serving Newton families since 1990.
We are looking for a mature individual with a minimum of fifteen years of solid work experience in retail, or a similar track record in another field with transferable skills. You should be able to lead others and also work well within a team. We need someone who is a self-starter, freindly, energetic, organized, punctual, comfortable with numbers, and enjoys the retail enviroment. You need to be physically fit so that you can climb stairs, stand most of the day, and sometimes lift cartons. A positive attitude and outgoing personality are also essential.
A knowlege of child development would be a plus, as would experience teaching or otherwise working with children. We have an extensive selection of arts & craft supplies, so an art background would be useful. You must be a non-smoker, and be comfortable working in the presence of a freindly dog.
We are looking for someone who can make a long-term commitment, and grow with our buisness. This could be a part-time or full-time position, but does require full days (10 am to 6 pm), and at least one weekend day per week.
If interested, please reply with a detailed cover letter and resume. We regret that we will not be able to respond to every applicant.
