Job description: What to expect?

Opportunities & Responsibilities:
By working within the project and production department of Extra-Ordinaire, and in close contact with the design, communication and commercial team, you are at the basis of the creation process. 
Operating in back-office, you’ll be responsible for ‘making it happen’: an idea stays one until all means and efforts are gathered for it to become reality. Project and Production operators are like magicians: while you get to know how it’s done, it stays a mystery for the public. 
At the other end of the spectrum: event management and coordination. This is the unwrapping: from a new arrival to a guest-designer, or simply an event to gather our community; this is how it unfolds. Expect surprises; we love that!

Curious – Creative – Rigorous

If these adjectives apply to you, you’ll be more than fitted with us. 
Extra-Ordinaire is a human-sized project so expect responsibilities and trust to be given to you. We seek the wonders and their makers, and we constantly rethink our ways, which makes every new day different from the previous. 

Now, let’s be more specific on your future tasks: 

  • to help the sourcing of new extra-ordinaire products, partners, and guest-designers :
    • Initial contact and meetings
    • development follow-up (price request, sampling, etc.)
    • to assist in all production launch and follow-up
    • budget follow-up & raw material orders
    • preparation of technical sheets
    • follow-up with the production workshops and local agents
  • to follow-up/keep order in the stock for both retail and the e-shop

  • to help develop and follow-up on all B2B projects
  • to put in place all means for e-shop encoding
    • product listing

Requirements
