Background & Key Skills/Personal Attributes:
The ideal candidate will be highly motivated and enthusiastic & bring a level of energy and independent thinking to the table. Ella Valentine is a young (3 years), independent label. We are growing quickly and this could be a very exciting opportunity for the right candidate. You must be highly motivated, energetic, well presented and outgoing. The ideal candidate is not only creative, but also has an apt
commercial sensibility and is able to work with numbers.
You will be working from a large home office in a beautiful home in Hampstead, directly with the owner. It is a very hands-on role with an opportunity to learn a lot across the board. We may be moving into a space near Charlotte Street during the course of the year, although a definite date has not been set. It is important to realize that this is not a buzzing office role, though there are lots of opportunities to assist in
meetings with clients, tradeshows, or other fashion related events. We currently do not have full time employees, and you need to be able to enjoy work independently and be self-motivated. This also means that you will be given more responsibilities and independent projects than perhaps in a larger corporate setting. This could be the perfect opportunity to join a fast growing fashion label and secure a position at
the end of the internship.
