Who We Are Looking For

We’re looking for a smart, enthusiastic and trust-worthy person to help in our small but exciting business.

Position Description

This position is a Senior Casual role for the summer, which could extend into ongoing work for the right candidate. The number of hour/days is negotiable but work will be during business hours and 9am to 2pm on Saturdays & Sundays. Full training will be provided to the right candidate. An interest in kayaking or fishing is highly regarded.

We run a very friendly but very hectic small business. It’s fun because we deal with outdoor adventure and our products are AWESOME (as of course are our people!) – but at times it’s just plain stressful! I’ve tried to summarise it below but we are a small business so you could end up doing all kinds of different activities to support the business.

What You’ll Do (Mainly)

  • Serve customers
  • Take orders
  • Manage orders using our sales management software
  • Move heavy stock in our warehouse
  • General business administration

Requirements

  • Work Hard – You will be a person of action! Always keen to get things done! Always working hard.
  • Excellent Computer Skills – The nerdier the better! You will be able to work most of the day on a computer and quickly learn to master new software.
  • Willingness to learn– you are hungry to learn new skills and memorise new information quickly.
  • Excellent English Skills – You will be able to clearly explain our products and procedures to customers.
  • Attention to Detail – You are the kind of person that naturally has high attention to detail!
  • Team Player – You will be enthusiastic to contribute to the team, help customers and colleagues wherever you can, and take instructions from Managers eagerly.
  • Friendly and Professional – Yes – that rare combination! You will be very friendly by nature and you will have a commitment to professionalism. To us this means always trying to do better, and do more to help

Finer Details

We operate 9-4 weekdays and 9-2 Saturdays so any work we offer you is likely to be within these hours. For the right candidate we’ll try to work in with you and your lifestyle where we can, however you must be available to work Saturdays 9-2pm.  Hours will increase towards Christmas, and then drop back dramatically after that. This role could be suited to school leavers or Uni students looking for work over Summer, we may be able to offer ongoing employment depending on aptitude and business requirements.

You will be ready to start immediately or with a few weeks.
