Job Description


Ray Stitch is a busy haberdashery and fabric shop in Islington. Our sewing school is based in the shop and, when running at full tilt, runs classes every day of the week. We are seeking a creative, energetic and flexible person to join our small team as Sewing School Manager.

You will be fully responsible for planning the class calendar in advance which will involve:

- Rescheduling regular classes and adding new classes to the calendar.

- Uploading all class listings to the website.

- Organising photography and graphics to maintain high standards of presentation on the website.

- Keeping up with trends and popular patterns with a mind to new classes.

- Finding new guest teachers to run unique workshops.

You will also be the main point of contact with our freelance teachers and students; working with teachers to design and trial new classes and keeping up to date with student/teacher emails & enquiries.

The promoting of classes and workshops is essential and will include sending monthly newsletters via Mailchimp, designing & printing marketing material and producing regular content for social media posts.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a sociable person who loves people and sewing in equal measure, can keep a hundred balls in the air, is kind and intuitive and willing to accommodate everyone’s needs and timetables, stays calm when something upsets the plan and relishes solving a problem.
