Maybe you’ll have some merchandising experience to enhance your ability to create the extraordinary. We’ll train you if not, but one thing’s for sure… You’ll certainly have a great eye for detail and what good looks like.
And you not only have a brilliant instinct but will also understand that you’re going to have to put plenty in to get out what you want.
