Customer Service is our number one priority and retail experience is preferred. All positions do require knowledge of local brands, already being familiar with The Local Space and being active on social media (you need to be comfortable showing your face on our Insta-Stories including doing try on sessions and talking to our followers).

All staff receive a discount of 20% off in store, commission (in the form of a gift card), annual raises, sick day rewards, paid birthday off, paid day to give back to the community, education opportunities to further knowledge on important topics (i.e, racism, equality, etc.). We truly believe that we are not successful without staff, so we know how important it is to make them feel appreciated.
