If you are interested in this role please send your CV and a cover letter describing why you would be a good fit for Partridge Jewellers here.

We are currently looking for a store manager to oversee staffing, sales and operations in our Christchurch store. Partridge Jewellers' managers aren't normal retail manager roles. They are more akin to overseeing a business of significant turnover, with direct input into events, product selection and strategy.

Who we look for

We want to hear from self-motivated and results-driven professionals with excellent communication skills. We value the relationships we build with our customers so a warm and engaging personality is very important.

The experience we offer our clients is key, so whilst we prefer jewellery or watch experience we are open to candidates who have other experience in a luxury environment. Full product training will be provided.

A high standard of personal presentation is important. We also work closely as a team so you should thrive in a fun but successful team environment.

Unfortunately, we can only take applications from candidates already working in New Zealand.

What we offer our staff

We offer our staff above-market remuneration and product incentives, exposure to some of the world’s best brands, plus continued training and development opportunities from us and our brands.

Please send your CV and a cover letter describing why you would be a good fit for Partridge Jewellers. We look forward to hearing from you. Apply Here
