Styling Assistant - Casual
Who Are We?
Let's get down and dirty. We are the Socially Conscious Picnic Co. in Perth. We believe in reducing our environmental footprint, so plastics and disposables don't feature in any of our picnics, and all linens and kitchenware are washed in cruelty free, enviro-friendly products, (because animals are cute, and the world is a pretty epic place). Plus, we feed back into our local not-for-profit causes, with a donation from each picnic going to one of Perth's rad charities through our human.kind project.
We have no ‘type’. We don’t discriminate here. Working for us we have family people, single people, happy people. People that actually think running is fun, admin guru’s, personal trainers, small business owners, and even one employee who really loves foil art. What matters most in our people is that when someone has an event or occasion coming up, they email boho & prosecco and our people help them as efficiently, creatively and awesomely as possible.
The most important job of a boho & prosecco Styling Assistant is to bring to life magical atmospheres for people to create memorable moments in their lives. Our success is measured through the number of “oh my God’s” received when the customer first lays eyes on their set up.
As a Styling Assistant, you have the ability to breathe life into a pile of “things” and turn them into something pretty. You have stellar interpersonal skills, and enough muscle to lift heavy stuff. A vehicle large enough to carry said heavy stuff is also a must because let’s face it, it would be a long laborious walk without it.
You don’t get flustered easily, and you like helping people. You get a kick out of those ‘aha’ moments where your pile of “stuff” comes together to create something beautiful. You are patient, level headed, and cool under pressure. Seeing other people’s joy when they arrive at their set up makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
You pay attention to the details. As far as you’re concerned, anything worth doing is worth doing right, every single time. You stay focused, and nothing falls through the cracks on your watch.
You can think on your feet. You like learning new things and you can learn quickly. When things change or don’t go according to plan, you know how to roll with the punches.
You’re socially conscious, eco-friendly, and as waste and cruelty free as possible, just like us. Because Mother Nature is pretty rad.
Last but not least, you take ownership of the work you do with us, perform it with your chest puffed out with pride and walk around telling everyone how epic your life is since you joined us.
The Technical Stuff.
A day in the life of a Styling Assistant looks a little something like this:
Arrive at warehouse to load vehicle.
Quality Assurance check of equipment, ensuring equipment is aligned with booking details.
Arrive at set up location and ensure location has adequate space, shade, and toilets in close proximity. Communicate directly with the customer of any changes that may occur with booking.

We maintain the integrity of the team spirit by always acting in good faith and with a positive attitude towards other team members. In short, we treat others how we want to be treated.
We do what we said we were going to do, when we said we were going to do it. We are always aware of how our actions may impact others.
When you work for someone else’s dream, your loyalty and faith in them will mean more to them that you’ll ever realise. Be loyal, and expect the same in return.
Sometimes things go wrong, things change, or things happen that we don’t need to know about. We are flexible, open minded and have faith that what happens, happens for a reason.
boho & prosecco gives back to our local community. Our goal is to make life a little bit better for others. We conduct each booking with exceptional service in mind, knowing it has a direct impact on our ability to achieve this.
We try our best at all kind of socially conscious shiz, including recycling, being cruelty free, and minimising waste. This can’t happen without your commitment too.
