Due to the ongoing success and expansion I have the pleasure of recruiting a retail host for a recognised premium make up brand inside a leading concession within the York City Centre.

As the person to greet our clients customers, you are essential in creating a fantastic and positive environment for them.  Having engaged with the customer you will assign them to one of the Make Up Artists (MUA).  Customers could be walking in off the street, browsing other concessions in the site or may have made a pre-booked appointment, however they arrive at our clients door we want you to ensure they are greeted appropriately and then sat down for their appointment or if necessary put on a waiting list to be seen. 

Whilst it isn’t essential for you to be a MUA yourself, a knowledge and passion for the make up industry would be key, so you can share information on the brand and products with our customers that do not require a seated service.
If you have though about a career in the beauty industry, this could be an ideal stepping stone for someone that doesn’t yet have experience as a MUA.
