Full job description

SQWUAAAARK!! It’s time to add a new Eaglet to our incredible LGBTQIA+ Eagle Leather family. We’re looking for a production assistant and salesperson at our rapidly evolving business. This is a full-time role which encompasses a diverse variety of tasks and responsibilities.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to work in the exciting field of fetish fashion and kink oriented gear, engaging with an amazing team in a sex-positive and fun workplace. A degree in fashion (or equivalent technical qualification) is a must for this role. Previous experience (2+ years) working in fashion production would be looked upon favorably as well.

This is an opportunity for someone wanting an amazing, rewarding and diverse long-term career, not just a job that pays the bills.

What are we looking for?

The right applicant will have:

  • Interest in working with leather and a desire to learn leather production skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Strong organisational abilities
  • Be friendly, bubbly, approachable, outgoing and high energy
  • Customer fitting skills
  • Customer service experience
  • Must love working with customers
  • Ability to manage people and time oriented goals
  • Computer literacy (excel and illustrator in particular)
  • A desire to help us continue building our leather brand over the long term
  • Be able to follow company processes
  • Be able to make fast decisions on your feet
  • A strong work ethic
  • Work well in a team environment
  • Be a self-starter capable of completing tasks on your own

This role will involve a mix of leather and vegan clothing and gear production, inventory management, putting together garment spec packs, quality control, production timeline management, as well as some limited design and development.  

The role enjoys the diversity of a few days working in the leather room as well as some time each week spent in the store as a sales assistant.  

As a 7 day a week store closing most nights at 10pm, the job will require a mix of day and evening shifts as well as one weekend day per week.  

We are big believers in working hard and playing hard too, so we are committed to providing you a good work/life balance. Benefits to working for us include working a 38 hour four-day week (if you choose to), being paid a fair salary and the chance for additional bonuses, as well as getting bonus a day off if your birthday falls on a work day, cause no one should ever have to work on a bday!

What’s the application process?

We haven’t ever advertised for a position working on our leather production team before, so we believe this is a pretty special opportunity for the right person.

The non-negotiable here is that you must have a degree in fashion under your belt, or a technical college equivalent. Please have a good read of the job description and the skills we’re hoping you’ll bring to the table before applying.

If you feel you’ve got the goods for this position, shoot your resume through to us at admin@eagleleather.com.au alongside a cover letter or video application (3-5 minutes max) - no fancy lighting or editing necessary - we just want to get a feel for who you are and what you’re about. We can’t wait to hear from you!

In your cover letter or video, please make sure to answer these three questions:

  • Why do you want to be a part of the Eagle Leather Family?
  • What do you think you can bring to this role?
  • What’s your fashion industry experience?

Applications close on 21st July 2022 with interviews taking place during late July.

As we are reviewing applications as they come through, move quickly so you don’t miss out.
