The hours will be flexible dependant on what suits us both but will centre around 1 day a week on a Monday 9am-4pm, Thursday 9.30am-3pm or Friday 9.30am-3pm.

Competitive hourly rate offered. 

Tasks will include:

  • Finishing castings
  • Adapting designs
  • Assisting with making masters
  • Packaging orders and post office runs
  • Assisting me in keeping the studio clean and tidy
  • Ordering materials

Skills required:

  • A good eye for detail and high standards of finish
  • Experience in fine metalwork including soldering 
  • Friendly manner 
  • Own means of transport 

Would suit someone with their own jewellery practise or in part time employment. 

Thornhill is in Dumfriesshire and is just over an hours drive south of Glasgow and about an hour and a half from Edinburgh. Public transport is patchy so your own means of transport is essential. If you are traveling from out with the region I can provide a small contribution to your daily travel costs. 

If you are interested please send your CV and covering letter outlining what you will bring to the role to alison@alisonmacleod.com by 16th April. I'm excited to hear from you.
