We are a small company: 4 permanent client services staff plus an administrator and freelancers as required as well as the managing director. Over the last two years we have developed processes to streamline what can be a super-busy environment. We work across several time zones with our factories in China, India, Turkey and the UK. We all take turns in making coffee, sending out samples and managing big enquiries from clients. Everyone is expected to get stuck in. We have found ourselves in a position where we want to help someone gain credible experience or find a role to suit their family schedule, as well as offer us support so we can continue to grow the business. This person may continue to work with us long term and eventually find themselves working in similar companies such as design agencies and marketing agencies as a client services account manager or studio manager.
