Assistant needed for LLG…

by Sasha Wilkins on June 9, 2014 · 8 comments



With Emily’s departure to the world of restaurants and cookery, I am looking for some paid temporary help in my office over the summer, until we appoint two new members of staff in September. (We don’t use interns here.) The successful candidate may, of course, apply later for one of the open positions.

The position is to start as soon as possible. (All applications to be received by close of play on Wednesday 11 June.)


I am looking for a part-time & self-employed all rounder to provide both editorial & PA support across all my company’s responsibilities (blog, digital media, book, shoots, events, consultancy, content creation, journalism). This is a paid position, based in central NW1, and the candidate will ideally be based in the immediate or surrounding area.

Maybe you are someone with part time commitments elsewhere? Or a student looking for summer work? The role is 20hrs a week ostensibly as 4hrs a day, 5 days a wk, but this may be flexible depending on my workload & your situation. i.e. maybe 3 hours one day, & none the next, and often will involve remote working, as I travel frequently.

The position is wide-ranging, requiring a discreet, motivated, meticulous self-starter who is flexible and happy to speak up, contribute ideas, and to use their initiative. They will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

The editorial support will include basic photo editing, researching fashion content & fact checking, calling-in for shoots, newsletter creation, basic PowerPoint slide creation, scanning, liaising with PRs, and regularly updating an EPK. External attendance at shoots and other events is sometimes necessary, although this is unlikely to be outside normal office hours. Edited to add: I create all content on LLG, so this is not a writing role, bar caption creation.

The PA tasks will cover, most importantly, managing the sometimes overwhelming office email inbox, as well as diary-keeping, office organisation, database input & management, and making appointments. It may also include basic expenses, errands, booking couriers, liaising with clients and booking travel arrangements.

The successful candidate must have a good understanding of blogs, Twitter, Facebook & other digital platforms including Instagram, YouTube & Pinterest, but I am NOT looking for a fashion blogger for this position.

This is not an intern or work experience position, and the candidate must have previous employment experience in a relevant field. Previous positions (and they can have been internships) in any of these fields would be particularly attractive: fashion, digital, publishing, PR, marketing, production.

The position is to start ASAP. (Although this can be flexible for the right candidate.) I am most definitely an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from every one. (But I’m afraid the office is accessed up a steep flight of stairs.)

Please email a covering letter and a full resume to the office at: contact [at]
