Do you wish you could combine your talents in business with your passion for jewellery and make a living? If so, then we’ve got some exciting news to share with you!

We’re looking to hire a General Manager to run our prestigious London Jewellery School, based in Hatton Garden (the vibrant and super trendy jewellery quarter in London).

 

Who We Are:

London Jewellery School is one of the world’s largest jewellery training centres. We host 100s of fun and professional jewellery classes which are open to students of all abilities from complete beginner through to experienced jewellers. The School was set up in 2009 and since starting we have trained over 20,000 students. We now have a thriving team of around 20 jewellery tutors, two staff members and two and a half fully equipped studios. www.londonjewelleryschool.co.uk

 

What We’re Offering:

 An exciting opportunity to manage the day-to-day running of the London Jewellery School, which includes budgetary responsibilities, operations and managing our amazing team. You’ll also spend your time scheduling classes and timetabling, taking bookings ordering materials and ensuring the health and safety of students and staff at all times.

 

This role is 4 days’ a week, Monday to Thursday 9am – 6pm.

 

This job is for you if:

  • You’re a big, bold thinker, with a can-do attitude and have the skills to identify opportunities to achieve growth and success faster

💸💎How would you like £1000 to spend on your jewellery business? 💎💸

jessica_rose-london-jewellery-schoolHi everyone. In case we haven’t met I’m Jessica Rose the Founder of the London Jewellery School. I wanted to hop onto the blog today to let you know about a great new opportunity and to encourage you to apply…

I have just launched a grant programme called JewelFund. It is specifically designed to support those starting and growing their jewellery businesses.

As you will know our ethos at the London Jewellery School is about supporting everyone to make jewellery. With the online Jewellers Academy, we offer on-going support (in-between classes) in your making and jewellery business needs. Basically, we are here to help support you and want you to succeed!

Whilst training, community and hard work are all important factors to building a successful jewellery business, sometimes what we need to get some momentum is an investment into our business (aka money!) This is where JewelFund comes in. This year we are giving away two £1000 grants. These are grants, not loans so you do not need to pay them back. You can decide what to spend them on. Well, within reason! It needs to be something to develop your business, not just a holiday, even if you deserve one!

You might use the fund to buy new tools and machinery, training or mentoring, stock to fulfil a wholesale order, workspace, rebranding to reach a new audience or a new website –  anything that will make a substantial difference to your business.

Any jeweller can apply who is over the age of 16 and where £1000 will make a real difference to their business. Pre-business jewellers may apply but will need to submit a business plan alongside their application. The deadline for applications is 30th June 2018. To find out more about the fund and to apply visit www.jewellersacademy.com/jewelfund

You can also watch the short video below to hear more about why we are launching the fund and what we are looking for from applicants…

I look forward to receiving your application

Until next time,

Happy Making

  • An 8-step roadmap that will guide you on exactly how to grow any jewellery business
  • – The key reasons jewellery businesses fail and how to avoid them in your business
  • – Plus a free downloadable worksheet and checklist for growth to work alongside Jessica in the session

Jess has run 5 different jewellery businesses over the past 10 years and has won 6 business awards for the growth and success of some of those businesses. As well as making plenty of mistakes (which she will tell you about herself!) so there is a wealth of knowledge to learn from, not to mention her wonderful team of tutors and experts who also offer business support through our classes and online programmes.
