It was an amazing result for everyone at Sweetpea and Willow, a reward for our hard work and passion. So with some amazing awards behind us and good times ahead of us, why not come and join the team?

  • Ability to work on own initiative without close supervision as well as helping out with a wide range of team tasks
  • Knowledge of photography - Use of DSLR Camera, lighting equipment etc. and a keen eye for a great photo would also be a big plus

What you will be doing

  • Your priority will ultimately be to upload new products to our website. This process involves liaison with our directors about new product, liaison with suppliers for product details, lots of creative writing, some photo editing and the daily use of our ecommerce platform
  • Liaising with the PR and Marketing team and blogging about new products and trends, as well as assisting with social media
  • Running and managing our competitions, including looking after the competition page and selecting/contacting winners

This opening offers an exciting opportunity to gain invaluable experience in a progressive, expanding company.
Expect a forward thinking, friendly bunch committed to building an even better Sweetpea and Willow.
The environment - We're all in an open plan office with music playing, we have a dress down (non formal) policy and the aroma tends to either be the smell of coffee or our gorgeous candles!
