Work with Us - Floral Assistant Position
Are we a good fit for YOU?
We’re looking for fun, enthusiastic, hard working, flower loving, service oriented, go-getter-kind of people to join our event floral team! Tasks will include a little bit of everything from general studio maintenance, pulling and sorting supplies, processing flowers, prepping containers, set-up/break down from the events, and everything in between! If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, are wonderfully polite with excellent people skills, work well with others, and don’t mind working hard, we would love for you to apply!
While what we do may seem glamorous, we definitely do work hard so we're looking for individuals who enjoy a challenge and don't mind some long days. The event world keeps us on our toes so we are also looking for individuals who can roll with the punches, think quickly on their feet, are EXTREMELY detailed oriented, and prefer to work in a team environment.
Our Clients are our world so if you don't enjoy serving others and interacting with people in a gracious and joyful manner, this job may not be for you! However, if everything we've mentioned so far makes you excited to learn more, please keep reading.
Urban Petals specializes in event floral design and our work is seasonal. We would like to find an individual who is willing to work on a flexible schedule. In fact, we already know the schedule from now until the end of year! We're looking for a commitment of 3 days a week beginning August 27, and weekends are a necessary component to fulfilling this position.
While design experience is a plus, most of the job entails other types of responsibilities. Many tasks include general studio maintenance (unpacking from events, washing buckets, sorting and restock supplies, pulling supplies for events, keeping track of various details (and lots of them), and assisting with wedding day set-up and break down.
While we wish we could hire ALL of you who are interested, the heart and character of the person we hire is most important to us. We can teach you the rest!
