Introducing High Summer '24 🦋

Studio Admin Assistant

Iconic British womenswear brand Shrimps is looking for an enthusiastic and organised Studio Admin Assistant to join their London-based team.


About Shrimps

Shrimps was launched in 2013 by London-based designer Hannah Weiland. Weiland is credited with bringing faux fur to the luxury sphere and has since grown Shrimps into a full RTW label, successfully branching into accessories, homeware and bridal. The brand has been involved in many high profile collaborations and has a core following amongst consumers and celebrities alike, who enjoy its niche, whimsical design aesthetic.


The Role

Supporting both the E-com/Marketing Manager and Operations/Production Manager, the successful candidate will work across a wide variety of departments and tasks including (but not limited to):

Shopify admin – adding collections, updating descriptions, working on SEO, managing stock availability, resizing images

Responding to customer service queries regarding orders and processing returns

Order processing for press, staff & wholesale

Wholesale store research and outreach, competitor research

Maintaining samples, logging and processing press loans

Assisting with sampling and production – sourcing, creating tech packs, communicating with suppliers, booking in shipments

Supporting progress towards improved sustainability and decarbonisation

General office / operational admin

Assisting in maintaining the studio, ordering sundries, organising storage, etc

This is a varied role working in a small team, where there are many opportunities to learn about luxury fashion business and to progress within the company.

It is a full time, hybrid role, currently working 2 days from the office in Ladbroke Grove and the remainder from home (subject to change, based on the needs of the company).

This role would suit an individual who has recently graduated from a fashion and/or business related degree and/or has a maximum of 1-2 years’ experience in an assistant role, preferably in the fashion industry. They must be fluent in English and confident in both written and verbal communication. As it is an admin-focused role, being comfortable working on spreadsheets and other software systems is essential.

Enjoys variety and a close, friendly working environment

Has an interest in sustainability

Is confident with tech and fluent using Microsoft Office and Adobe CS
