Job Opportunities with Cleancut Wood

We need a designer.

Up to now we have done our own designing, with good results – but now we want great results, not just good. Our business is unlike many others: we make gifts that make people happy, in our while-you-wait gift personalisation studio at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. Plus we sell online. So what do we need? It breaks down into these areas:

PRODUCTS: we currently laser-engrave wood and slate products, mainly with text & simple graphics. We need new graphic ideas, from new font choices to completely new concepts for new markets.

BRANDING: we are in the middle of rebranding from Cleancut Wood to Custom Gift Studio, both online and at our physical store. We need a cohesive approach to setting up our look and feel.

ONLINE: we need photos, product listings, love and attention on the following:

  • our old site (winding down to a non-ecommerce site)
  • our new ecommerce website (functional but not pretty enough)
  • our store on (needs revamp of product mix)
  • our store on (presently basic but promising)
  • we have hardly scratched the surface of social media… apparently it’s quite popular?

MARKETING: We need materials such as vinyl stickers, special offers, seasonal themes, pricelists, brochures, gift packaging, POS and more. A regularly changing mix of printed materials, screen-based presentations and advertising posters, and of course online too.

PLUS… you will also need to like retail, a lot. Would you be happy face to face with customers, taking their orders, making their gifts, and enjoying the smile on their faces when they come to collect? Some days you will be concentrating on design work: other days you will be running the show - making gifts, managing the store and supervising other staff. Enthusiasm/energy essential.

What would you like to do: part time? Full time? Evenings? Weekends? Let’s discuss your pay. How about a 6 month freelance contract, which can maybe become permanent? Maybe you want flexibility to work on your own projects too? All things are possible, because we are just at the start of an exciting growth period for our business. Today Cheshire Oaks, tomorrow the world…
