Contract Position Description

We are seeking a Freelance Florist with at least 2 years of recent full-time experience to work with our team for 2-3 months this fall.

Enjoy the beauty of the mountains of Western North Carolina in the fall! We're located in an incredible destination that draws visitors from all over the world.

By recent, full-time experience, we mean that floristry should be your main gig. We don't need to know exactly how many hours per week or precisely what season, but your experience should be extensive, and you should have confidence in your skills!

We're looking for someone with enough experience to seamlessly jump in with our team and design in our style. We will offer some training, but you should be well-versed in design techniques include: foam-free mechanics, spiral stem bouquets, wiring flowers, designing compotes, onsite event installation and more.

We will hammer out the exact dates you can expect to work before committing to the contract, but we're hoping to find someone who can come in late August or early September and stay until mid-November. Work days would be Wednesday through Saturday with a few Sundays in the mix. Workload would be about 40 hours per week.

Please submit a resume and photos of your work. Please indicate which photos are your individual work, and which photos are team work. Please send materials to emily@carolinaflowers.com
