The candidate will assist in the marketing and presentation of our website. Please note this is an in-house position, and the work is to be done on-site at our London, Ontario store.

We are always getting new products from new surplus deals, so we constantly need new product pages.

Applicants will also be responsible for creating print and electronic flyers using Adobe InDesign. Here is a chance to show your creativity and design sense!

Skills and Experience Required: Knowledge of basic HTML is required. Basic Photoshop and Photo Editing Skills are required. Experience with Adobe InDesign is also required. As this is a team environment, applicants must be able to work with others and receive and act on direction from supervisors.

The candidate must be able to speak and write in fluent and correct English, as he or she will be required to quickly and accurately gather and edit product descriptions for an extremely wide variety of product web pages and occasionally speak with suppliers for additional product details. The ability to multitask and follow direction is a must. Knowledge and experience with social media platforms is also an asset.

Experience is required. Please be prepared to present a portfolio demonstrating previous digital or print marketing experience. You may include a link to an online portfolio in your cover letter.

All applicants must be Canadian Citizens, Permanent Residents, or have a valid work permit. This is an entry-level position with entry-level compensation.

Our business is located on the 2B Dundas bus route and close to the 17 Oxford West LTC bus routes. For applicants who have a car, we also have plenty of free parking (unlike most downtown jobs).
