Hours: 10.00am - 6.00pm

Are you looking for an opportunity to join a busy music and entertainment merchandising business? Do you love a challenging, varied role in which multi-tasking is a top priority? Are you a strong people person with high-level attention to detail and top-notch numeracy skills? If so, this could be the job for you!

Handle Recruitment has partnered with a leading music and entertainment merchandising company who, due to growth, are looking to hire an Admin Assistant for their Retail department.
