Closet Organizer

We’re currently looking for someone to take a lead role as a closet organizer. This role is best suited for someone who is extremely organized, visually and spatially aware and able to see big picture solutions.

A career with The Little Details means you will be working on all sorts of projects. Your days will look different each week.

Overall traits we’re looking for:

  • Impeccable attention to detail.
  • Strong organizational skills.
  • Self-motivated and hardworking.

  • Compassion and empathy for clients and team members.
  • The ability to keep your personal and work life separate.
  • Trustworthiness and discretion especially when dealing with the client’s private lives.
  • A level of personal integrity (keeping trade secrets, not soliciting clients or active prospects, and maintaining protection of copyrighted materials and trademarks).

Overall skills we’re looking for:

  • Mental endurance– the ability to offer exceptional results regardless of difficult circumstances and to remain confident and in control under pressure.
  • Physical endurance– the ability to lift and carry up to 40 pounds, go up and down stairs or a ladder and to perform other physical activities involved in a project.
  • Ability to effectively and confidently sell additional organizing sessions to clients.

  • You will be asked to cover occasional shifts at the studio if needed and your schedule allows.
  • You will be asked to work an occasional weekend day if a client’s move is scheduled for a weekend, if there is an event at the studio or if the owner is out of town.
