Brand Assistant

Bluebellgray, based in the West End of Glasgow, is a colourful independent interiors brand, loved by pattern addict local and international customers; those who are looking to make their home a more joyful and happy place. 

We have our design studio upstairs (where the magic and mess happens), and our brand new shop downstairs filled with Bluebellgray products, and a range of eclectic wares from all over the world. 

We are bursting with ideas, and we are now at the point where we need an extra head and pair of hands. We want to launch new product categories, we want to work more with interior designers and we want to do more for the Hyndland community that we are in!

We are looking for someone to work as an Assistant (and partner in crime) to our Brand Director. That means working to ensure that we are running to season with our product development, that key customers are happy and well looked after, that photoshoots are perfectly organized, that the studio is neat and tidy, that we have great branded stock in the shop and that our events are awesome.

You will be based predominantly upstairs in our relaxed studio environment with some time also being spent each week downstairs in our shop helping with deliveries, custom customer projects, and visual merchandising.

We are looking for someone who passionately throws themselves in to projects and isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves; as mentioned we are a small team so there is a lot of physical work- packing boxes, receiving in deliveries, painting walls, climbing up and down ladders, steaming fabric and general studio help.

We are looking for candidates from a background of Textiles, Interiors, Architecture, Vis Comm, Fashion, Retail or Photography, with a minimum of 1 year in industry. A similar university degree is preferred, or an equivalent 3+ years in industry.

In return you will get to work in our awesome relaxed studio environment, learn directly from our amazing team of industry experts, be part of something truly special (Bluebellgray started 10 years ago on a kitchen table and we now sell all over the world!), be trained in Buying, Selling, Marketing & Product Development. This really is a very unique opportunity and we are looking for someone to grab it with both hands.

We haven’t quite figured out the job title yet, this will be influenced by the person we get for the job, and the skills they can bring to our team. This is something that we can work on together when you start.

The Dream Candidate Check List:

  • Degree in Textiles/Fashion/Interiors or similar + minimum 1 year in industry OR
  • Minimum 3 years in industry
  • Proficient in Excel (there is a fair bit of maths!)
  • Basic DIY skills – an all round creative
  • Super organised – like Marie Kondo organised
  • Experience in Photoshop/Indesign
  • A people person – great at building relationships
  • Has worked in a Head Office or busy Studio environment

  • Keen negotiator

  • Smiley face

Added Bonus:

  • Experience in Photography, editing, Video, GIFs

Too much to ask? We know you’re out there!

Do you love colour? Pattern? Art? Interiors? DIY? Cups of Tea? Great chat?

Up for the challenge and think this sounds like fun?

E-mail our Brand Director Lillian@bluebellgray.com to apply. We want to hear about your hobbies and interests just as much as your working experience, so feel free to send a short video if you feel this better represents you, or a simple CV is perfect.

Interviews will be taking place throughout October, with the position starting in November.
