Assistant manager in a brand new store, my role has been to train new staff and xmas casuals, as well as ensure smooth operation and growth of the store. This included the first busy christmas in a central London location, working with rosters, liaising with head office and maintaining the store. I am also the Tea Ambassador for the store, dealing with education and product knowledge and maintaining a sense of belonging amongst the team. My job has also involved creative strategising, and actioning ways to maintain and achieve our KPIs and targets.
During the busiest mid-year school holiday season in 5 years, I worked at the Melbourne Aquarium full time completing duties including photography, digital manipulation, printing and packaging, sales, and till operations. My role was temporary as I was moving to London.
Working within Myer department stores operating and mainting a concession. Duties included dealing with peak christmas retail, maintaining and replenishing stock, ensuring store standards comply with health and safety standards.
I have managed myself and my business for many years. In this time I've worked with countless fashion designers/stylists, businesses, and even sporting teams. It has been on myself to manage finances, growth, and to branch myself out into the creative world. My artist bio is below: As a freelance artist, Kafei finds great pleasure in executing a vision - whether for an upcoming fashion line, a jewellery range, or a conceptual makeup piece. Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Kafei finds great influence in the landscape and the urban environments, as evidenced in his unique approach to fashion portraiture and it's use within the Australian landscapes and urbanscapes. This approach to background location also proved to be a strength while working in London. Before finding photography, Kafei specialized in painting, with his focus on Pop Art. His main influences - Andy Warhol, Roy Lichenstein, Takashi Murakami and Pop Culture - still play a huge role in his artworks, even though they are now in a different medium. Graduating Sandringham College in 2011, Kafei has since graduated NMIT, and taken his photography around the world. Accomplishments Held exhibitions, been published in dozens of global magazines, curated my own global publication with artists from around the world.
