MFP wants you! – Madame Fancy Pants


MFP wants you!

We’re hiring!

Are you customer focused, full of energy, organized and always willing to go that extra mile? Then you could be just the person we are looking for.

The position is for days Wednesday – Saturday and 25 – 35 hours per week.   (With a bit of flexibility)

MFP is looking for the following skills and qualities in our new girl (or boy!)

 -Customer care is THE MOST important part of this role, we love helping people! Helping folks find that perfect dress for a part, that awkward feller who wants to get his lady or mum some jewellery, the smiling person who simply wants a little treasure. We assist folks in the store, via email and phone so tone and a happy face is important.

 -Product knowledge! We stock a fair few designers and we know all about them – where they are from, where they are made, how they are made, what they are made from and how best to look after them. We strive to give our customers great products and its super important to be knowledgeable about what we are selling.

 -Pictures + words! If you can whip up a pretty picture on Photoshop and are handy with a camera that’s an added bonus, we like to do a spot of blogging about new things in the store or stuff that’s happening out and about in Wellington.

 -Technology! Fandangle! Hooray! We use a Windows computer in store and have a few different systems like Vend for our point of sale and Shopify for our website sales.  

 -Make it pretty! An eye for the little things and making the store look pretty is a must, window displays and general product merchandising to keep the store inviting and fresh for the customers (and us!)

 -It’s a wee store! There are just 3 of us in the joint, you will be out on the floor most days, I will be out the back making jewellery, buying stock, doing accounts (blurgh) and helping out the front when need be and then the lovely Anneke taking charge on Sundays. Flexibility is pretty important, I have a young feller who sometimes gets sick (hmmm) and I might need to jig around shifts from time to time. Same goes for me, I am a flexible employer and appreciate open lines of communication between all my lovely staff.

 -Cleaning! (Weeee exciting!) Cleaning the store, out the back room, counting stock, keeping track of stock and generally a well-kept organized store that’s easy and fun to work in.

 That’s it for now, if you think that this role sounds like you and you would like to join our small but fancy family then send through a cover letter letting introducing yourself, and why you would be great for this role and what you could bring to it and your CV to: or pop on in store.

Applications need to be in by the 1st of February 2015.

Applicant must have a New Zealand work visa.

Super! xClaire

I think one of you is quite enough Claire – you are unique in every way! Good luck with the selection process. I am sure you will be overwhelmed with applicants. It is the best place in Wellington to work. See you soon MRP X
