Looking for a Career with Calico Laine, why not get in touch today.

We are always looking for passionate people who feel they can help our business grow, improve our operations and in turn deliver a better service to our loyal customers. We are looking to employ on a long term basis and building an even greater team.


We are a Fabric, Haberdashery and Crafts retail/mail order business based on the Wirral with shops in Neston and Liscard. The role we are advertising for is full time and is going to be based in our Neston branch. It will involve both serving customers in-store, as well as helping to process some of our online orders, many of which are placed over the phone so a good telephone manner is deemed as important.

We are preferably looking for someone with a Textiles background as there is a requirement to cut fabric on a daily basis. This can be taught fairly easily, but someone with an interest and prior knowledge in fashion, fabrics, or crafts would be advantageous. Other daily tasks will include cutting and shipping fabric samples. This job will require lifting and moving rolls of fabric from time to time, some of which are quite heavy so it can be fairly physical.

The ideal candidate will be a very sales motivated individual, who can try and attract new business and convert current leads into customers.
