Join the HRYC team!

June 22, 2016

With two HRYC babies on the way, we need some new hands to join the crew! 

Does the thought of opening giant boxes of squishy smooshy wool sound like Christmas to you? It does to us! And we're looking for a like-minded person to join the team in our Willis St store, hooray! 

Holland Road Yarn Co isn't just a shop, it's a place where we build a community of knitters and crafters. We really love our customers and bend over backwards to bring them the best possible yarn buying experience. We are a 21st century business who use all the technology at our disposal.


Our ideal colleague is:


- a true yarn-lover, a passionate knitter and well-versed in all things woolly

- can talk about knitting and projects until the cows come home

- knows Ravelry backwards and believe technology is essential to daily life

- can wrangle google docs and share inspiration in 140 characters

- crochet and /or spinning skills would be a bonus

- constantly looking to learn more about the craft

- comfortable with money handling and sales

- and, most importantly, have amazing people skills.


There is one position available, on a casual contract to cover maternity leave. There is potential for it to become permanent, depending on how 2017 turns out for us. The role is sole charge, so we need someone who can take the initiative but isn't afraid to ask questions if unsure about something.


The role:
Grand Arcade, Willis St store
Tuesday and Thursday 10am - 5pm
with the potential for extra hours in winter, school holidays and as required
How to apply:
Send your CV and cover letter to by 5pm Friday 8 July. Interviews will be Monday 18 July and position commences (with training) Wednesday 3 August.
