Interns wanted

AN INVALUABLE INTERNSHIP
EXPERIENCE EVERY ANGLE OF A SUSTAINABLE LUXURY BUSINESS

Choo Yilin Artisan Jewellery is an award-winning fine jewellery label that fuses sustainability and luxury. Its pieces are featured regularly by both the local and international media and is stocked in luxury boutiques worldwide, including London, New York City and Phuket. The label works with marginalised communities, uses only reclaimed precious metals and collaborates with non-profit groups to raise important social, cultural and environmental messages. Its signature design philosophy is that of organic asymmetry, in the belief that life while beautiful is imperfect and that we should celebrate its flaws. For more detail about its work, please visit www.chooyilin.com.

As such, the label is expanding very fast and is seeking enthusiastic individuals to join the team in either a full-time or part-time capacity. Interns will be involved in key areas like wholesale and retail operations as well as marketing and communications.

A strong interest in social entrepreneurship and/or designer jewellery is required. For student interns, those in their final year are preferred. Applicants have to be diligent, honest, organised, self-motivated and self-aware. Applicants must have good written, verbal and visual communication skills, and be proficient at using MS Office. Retail work experience is a plus.

Candidates will be required to work for a period of at least 4 months in a fun, flexible entrepreneurial environment, with attractive remuneration and sales commission. In addition, candidates will benefit from close mentorship with intensive career developmental feedback and resume-building skills. Candidates may be offered full-time employment with managerial duties if assessed to be of the right fit.

If you think you have got what it takes and would like to be part of the team, we request that you submit the following to info@chooyilin.com:
