Background

Whilst we work with people with trade skills such as technical goldsmiths or designers, over half our sales and admin team had no jewellery experience when they joined us. Our mix of in-house and external industry standard training program takes time and delivers great results for those who share our values. We offer a growing progression for team members with increasing responsibility for those with the drive to succeed.

Our ethos is simple: we want to be best for our customers, our team and ourselves individually, integrating deeply with our community and the jewellery trade itself for the long term benefit of all.

We look for team players who are

  • organised
  • good communicators – listening & speaking
  • pro-active and motivated
  • bright
  • ambitious & want to learn
  • tenacious
  • have an eye for detail

We like people who like helping other people, be it customers or our team members.

We also try to take a student from the internationally recognised University of Reading each year to work part time while studying in the town. 

If you’re keen to know more, like to learn and ready to get hands on, you can always email a CV.
