I established a welcoming environment by making personal connections with customers while at the same time performing transactions with speed and accuracy. I was also responsible for preparing the store to open in the morning, which entailed cleaning the café and arranging the display case within a limited time period.
I assisted customers both on the sales floor and over the phone with finding products as well as provided book recommendations tailored to their interests. I also performed closing duties, including working with a team to tidy the store and replenish products. I took ownership over assigned departments and prioritised tasks to ensure that the areas remained organised so as to be visually accessible and attractive to customers.
I assisted visitors while stationed in the gift shop, at the front desk, and as an invigilator in the gallery. I aided in the running of workshops for local youth, including taking photos to be used for social media. I also conducted independent research on the artists represented by Hauser & Wirth to be distributed to invigilators.
I was primarily responsible for moving precious artefacts from their outdated housing to an updated unit, and also devised a cataloguing system to account for the artefacts in museum records. I prepared records and artefacts for visiting researchers as well as assisted with the supervision of artefacts during the viewing. I also worked independently to identify and tag artefacts for repatriation to indigenous groups.
