Gabriel Scott is hiring a showroom sales assistant to join its team in London.
Role: showroom sales assistant
Location: Mayfair, London
Hours: full-time, Monday to Friday, 10:00 to 18:00
Salary: dependent on experience
Gabriel Scott is a design house and production studio creating contemporary collections of fine furniture and lighting. Led by founder and CEO Scott Richler, all Gabriel Scott pieces are proudly handmade in a Montreal-based studio where an in-house team of industrial designers, engineers and manufacturers work together to create and oversee each piece from inception to production.
Established to blend Scott’s design experience developed over many years working in architecture, fashion and jewellery design, Gabriel Scott’s furniture and lighting collections are designed in line with the studio’s three principles: timeless, customisable and versatile aesthetic.
The exclusive line is available to view at their flagship showrooms in New York and London as well as through a global network of luxury lighting and furniture retailers.
Based in Gabriel Scott’s Mayfair showroom, the role will be pre-dominantly sales and client experience focussed. Taking on a client-facing position, you’ll be responsible for welcoming architect and interior designer clients to the showroom. Therefore, the right person will be well presented, polite and have a warm and friendly personality. You’ll also be responsible for maintaining the showroom’s appearance, always ensuring it’s presentable and tidy, as well as ensuring inventory is managed correctly and samples and storage is well prepared and maintained.
The Showroom Sales Assistant will also manage and respond to inbound enquiries from Europe and all other global territories excluding UK, USA and Canada, so this is a perfect opportunity for someone looking to start their career in sales.
Furthermore, the role will support the Sales Director with admin for UK enquiries and sales. Gabriel Scott’s head office and studio is in Montreal, so you’ll be in regular communication with the team there to ensure sales enquiries are efficiently dealt with and clients are kept up to date with order information.
The ‘ideal’ person
Joining a small internal team, you’ll be a motivated and enthusiastic person who is a great multi-tasker and able to demonstrate the following:
- organisational and time management skills
- great communication skills – written and verbal
- a passion for interiors, fashion or luxury brands
- someone who can take initiative is also very important
You’ll be given full training to bring you up to speed with internal processes and the CRM system, so no direct experience is necessary.
