About Papersmiths
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 at Papersmiths involves all sorts. This could include talking to customers, sharing product knowledge, taking photos or creating stories for Instagram, 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!

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!
