Established in 1999 Macandi represents several brands from our showroom in Central London.

The diversity of our brands and our long-standing relationships with stores attracts over 250 buyers to appointments in our showroom each season. Our customers span the full range of the UK market from the premium department store to the independent boutiques.

The UK is our main market but we also attract buyers from Japan, the USA and Europe to view collections in London and Paris. Through our network of agents across Europe we can assist a brand in selling to all the major markets on the continent.

We pride ourselves on our ability to develop and build long term distribution strategies for the brands we work with which is aided by the knowledge we gain from running our own independent label, retail stores and ecommerce website alongside the agency.

We see ourselves as an extension of the brands we work with and offer design, PR and retail consultancy in addition to a pure sales role as and when required.

As a Showroom Assistant you are the first impression that any visitor gets of the company and so it’s a vital role for our organisation. You need to be professional in appearance, personable and polite at all times. Your role is to provide administrative support to a sales team within our business.

The sales department produces a steady flow of paperwork and it’s the job of the Showroom Assistant to ensure this is dealt with timely and efficiently. It’s an important role as it allows the members of the sales team to spend more time selling and generating income whilst you provide the essential administration support.

Working in a sales environment is often quite pressurised and you’ll need to be super organized and able to remain calm under pressure.

Your role involves dealing with enquiries both on the phone and in person so you need to have a good working knowledge of the company as a whole, including key departments and staff.

Typical Duties

Previous Experience

Some previous work experience is essential; either in an office or customer facing environment.

Working Hours

In terms of working hours, you’re usually required to be present during normal opening hours for the business. This is generally8:45 to 6, Monday to Friday but bear in mind that during peak periods of business we may require you to work weekends and evenings too so you need to be flexible. You will be allocated time off to attend your courses and given our full support.
