Our mission is to become the most popular prescription eyewear brand wherever we are, and we want you to help get us there!

Part-time · Edinburgh St James Quarter Showroom

We’re looking for a talented Stylist to join our experienced showroom team in Edinburgh that leads from the front to help our customers look and feel great in their IOLLA eyewear!

If you love working with people, have a passion for great customer service and, ideally, have optical knowledge,  this combination will deliver a spectacular customer experience.  An interest in eyewear, and a passion for fashion is a plus! 

About the Role:

Customer Experience - Our stylist role plays a key part within the showroom team.

  • You have a passion for delivering an exceptional customer experience
