Gogoluxe, a dynamic and leading fashion & retail consulting company, is seeking a Market Coordinator. The position will begin on a flexible, part-time internship basis, and based on successful completion of the internship, the candidate will assume the full-time role as of 1 October 2015. During the period of the six-week internship (15 Aug – 30 Sept 2015), a stipend will be offered.
Part-time Internship role:
During this phase, the candidate will be responsible for Fashion Week SS16 ticket requests, database organization, filing/assembling/distributing ticket deliveries, interfacing with leading PR firms as well as key sales and press representatives at brands. At the same time, the candidate will begin learning the Market Coordinator role while assisting with seasonal market appointment scheduling for clients, among other administrative duties. The commitment during this phase will be approximately 20-25 hours per week.
Full-time Market Coordinator role:
The Market Coordinator is responsible for managing the scheduling, administration and logistics of client buying-appointment itineraries when clients attend market in NYC. The role serves as a key liaison between the company, the clients, and both the vendor (brands) and PR communities. As a result, the exposure this person receives across the industry is significant.
The Market Coordinator must be extremely organized, independent, detail-oriented, articulate and proactive, particularly when handling the demanding aspects of Fashion Week, seasonal markets, and one-off events such as the Met/Costume Institute Gala on behalf of high-profile clients. The ideal candidate will be someone who anticipates as much as reacts.
The Market Coordinator role engages in industry and city-wide research for publication in the company’s monthly intelligence memos and seasonal market guides, as well as light editing pre-publication. As a result, the ideal candidate will be a good writer with an editor’s eye for detail.
The Market Coordinator also serves as Office Manager, helping to oversee the daily operation of the office environment.
The successful candidate will be able to convey in a written cover letter (to accompany the submission of a resume) how and why she/he will excel in a demanding client service driven business. Please indicate salary requirements for the Market Coordinator role in the letter. The internship stipend will be discussed separately.
