Glen Innes, Full Time
Please Quote Reference Number 71124
  • Deliver excellent customer service
  • Creative problem solver with keen eye for detail
  • Strong computer skills are essential

  • Wrightway Studios is the largest and only multi-service restoration organisation in the southern hemisphere. We have 15 highly skilled artists on site from all over the globe that specialise in maintenance, repair and restoration of antique, collectable, sentimental and modern artworks. We are also home to Auckland Dolls Hospital, fixing and restoring valuable and well loved children's toys.

    We have a great role available for a friendly, efficient Art / Doll Restoration Artist & Receptionist to join us in providing excellent service to our customers.

    This position is part doll restoration and part reception so you must have great personal presentation and customer service, some retail or hospitality experience and an interest in antiques and collectibles, with a mature outlook, excellent English and a strong work ethic.

    You need to be confident with hand tools, a good problem solver and have strong practical abilities. Modeling and colour matching skills are critical for this role. Attention to detail and patience are essential as the restoration process can be time consuming and requires a precise eye. Training will be given in basic techniques, but you must have some practical artistic skills (creative digital skills are not needed for this role).

    This full time role also requires sole charge work in our showroom on a Saturday morning 10am-1pm, 1 morning per month. You will be required to answer the phone, greet and consult with customers and enter data using Vend, therefore strong computer skills are a must.

    To express your interest in this role, please send your CV, cover letter and a basic portfolio of creative work through our online application form, outlining why your previous experience makes you a suitable candidate for the role.

    Please note, we are ONLY accepting online applications.
