Work With Us

Posted by Sidonie Warren on

Happiness has many forms and new stationery is one of them. You're on our website right now so chances are you probably already know a bit about us. If you're here for the job, here's what you need to know. 

We are looking for new people to join our talented team of Papersmiths in our Chelsea flagship, our growing Brighton e-commerce operation and our King's Cross concession store. We have part time and full time roles available.

Our Chelsea store is on Pavilion Road, just around the corner from the iconic King's Road with boutiques like Ganni, Miista and Aesop. Our King's Cross concession is inside Wolf & Badger in the heart of Coal Drops Yard, the new Thomas Heatherwick development at King's Cross. Our neighbours are Margaret Howell, Cubitts and Earl of East. Our Brighton store is in the North Laine, a two minute walk from the main station and opposite the coffee gods Pelicano.

The roles available are:

Chelsea - Part Time Sales Assistant, 6-20 hours per week over 1-4 days and you'll need to be able to work weekdays and at least one weekend day.

King's Cross - Part Time Sales Assistant, 6-20 hours per week over 1-3 days and you'll need to be able to work weekdays and at least one weekend day.

Brighton - Part Time Online Assistant, 6-20 hours per week over 2-4 days. Mainly weekdays but weekend flexibility would be helpful. 

All roles will have more hours available as we move towards Autumn. We can offer 28-37.5 hours per week over 5 days per week straight away if you're able to work in both King's Cross and Chelsea.

We’re a bunch of very friendly, knowledgeable, passionate people, all with an outside interest in creation of some kind, from knitting to illustration to weaving. Everyone brings great chat to the shop floor because they’re genuinely excited about creativity and probably a little bit obsessed with stationery. We love organisation and we keep our store immaculate. If this sounds like you then join our club.

So what are we looking for? We like working with people who are efficient and like to get things done to a high standard. We're a small business so we all chip in with everything that goes on in a stationery shop. We adore people who will bring passion for our products, confidence, initiative and positivity to the store.

A day in the shop involves all sorts. This could include chatting to customers, sharing product knowledge, demonstrating products, selling products, stock checking, processing deliveries of stationery (the best bit), restocking, cleaning, tidying, visual merchandising, answering the phone, wrapping orders, handwriting notes, tracking deliveries. It's varied, fast paced and fun!

The online role is based at our Brighton HQ and involves picking and meticulously wrapping our orders, handwriting notes, conducting stock checks, keeping our workspace clean and tidy and looking after customer service queries via email and telephone.  

We are super proud of our high levels of customer care. Everyone who comes into the store gets a genuinely warm welcome with a smile and a hello. Our customers are our guests and if you have a naturally friendly aptitude you'll fit right in - we can't wait to meet you!
