What else should you know about Curated Makers:

 

I’m Megan, founder of Curated Makers. Our events are a collaboration between ourselves, high street stores and local artists and makers. It’s a win win for everyone involved and we believe that collaboration really is the key to success, which includes behind the scenes too! My joiner partner Tom builds all of our fixtures for our pop-ups, and my draughtsman Dad, Peter, designs all of our store layouts. It's a true family business that we hope to expand further over the coming years. We have national demand from our makers and retailer partners and we now need the right people to help us scale. It’s a pretty exciting time to join us and have a huge impact on the development of the business, that helps so many others too, alongside growing ourselves. Our current event coordinator Laura will soon be going on maternity leave in August and will help get you up to speed and planning some of our upcoming pop-ups before then! We have 2 new pop-ups at the early stages of planning as we speak and these would be great real-life examples to teach the right person the ropes with.

  • Starting - asap

  • Split between working remotely at home, at our unit in Bury, North Manchester and on location at events

  • Salary - £10 per hour
