About you

You have a natural passion and enthusiasm for all things floral as well as a flair for creativity.  Experience in a similar environment is preferable but your ability to effectively prioritise workload and remain calm in pressurised circumstances is essential.  You are positive, enthusiastic, result driven and have a can-do attitude to your work. The ideal candidate is a people’s person with a customer focused approach who thrives within a team environment but is equally reliable when working alone.
