Sales / Events Assistant & Model - Part Time

We are looking to fill multiple permanent positions working as sales assistants and models at our fashion shows. Your shift would start when you arrive at our warehouse/office. You will travel to the fashion show in the van with the rest of the events team (you are paid for this travel time in the van). On arrival at the venue, you will help unload the clothing and set up the show. Once the show starts you will be modelling some of the clothes we have on sale. Afterwards, the guests can try on and shop the clothing. You will assist customers with sales, and help take till payments. At the end of night you will help pack up and load everything back in the van. You will get a lift home (either back to your car or back to your front door) in the van with the rest of the team, and again you will be paid for this travel time!
