Summer 2015 is shaping up to be a really exciting time for The Day’s Design and the busiest season yet. I’m so excited for the warm weather finally arrive and the beginning of wedding season – but before that, there’s some wedding prep that must be done and I’m hoping you can be a part. Come, join my team!
We’re looking for someone passionate about organization, coordination, the small details and all things weddings. The perfect candidate will be assisting with logistics and timelines, on site event management and have excellent communications skills – both written and verbally. The position requires some design knowledge and an appreciation for pretty details.
This is a part-time assistant with a somewhat flexible schedule but availability on event weekends is a must. The production and coordination assistant may be required at client meetings, venue walk throughs and office prep days. You must also be willing to travel to event sites throughout Michigan and meet at least weekly in Grand Rapids throughout the summer months.
Compensation: Based on experience
We’re also seeking an intern with a detail oriented eye and an interest in lush, garden style florals. Intern responsibilities might include assistance in the conception and overall design of the wedding and/or events, assistance with setup and day-of tasks, packing and loading of décor, construction of design pieces and small floral arrangements and cleanup and organization at the end of the event.
Having prior experience in customer service, hospitality or the events industry would be extremely helpful along with a great eye for style and design. You must be willing to travel throughout Michigan to event sites although Grand Rapids will be the base of our services and Friday and weekend availability is necessary.
Compensation: an education in the wedding industry with a focus in event coordination, florals and design. Must be able to receive college credit.
To apply for either position, please send resumes to Shelby at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear why you’re interested in the wedding industry, why you want to work with The Day’s Design and more about your personal style. If you have a blog or other wedding related interests, feel free to share. Applications will be accepted immediately with interviews scheduled in early April. The positions will begin mid-May.
I can’t wait to meet you!
