Front Desk Administrator

Witch City Ink - Salem, MA


*2 days/week part time position now available for front counter/studio administration*

We are looking for a friendly and outgoing person who loves talking to people and has an excellent work ethic with office administration and cleaning to help us keep our busy downtown Salem tattoo shop running smoothly two days per week. We are entering a tourist season that grows steadily now through Halloween, so our counter staff must have the ability to handle client and artist communication and meet artist needs in a fast-paced environment, all while maintaining a clean and welcoming studio that is up to our high standards. Because this job is so communication-heavy, excellent conversation and writing skills (with very close attention to spelling & grammar accuracy) are a must.

Daily duties include:

*Opening/closing the studio

*Discussing appointments with many potential clients & carefully using scheduling software

*Coordinating communication between clients & tattoo artists: in person, by phone, & through email

*Handling most of the shop's POS transactions for tattoo appointments and merchandise

*Keeping the studio, artist stations, and bathrooms clean throughout the day

*Helping artists expedite appointments by making stencils or preparing supplies



*People person


*Excels at multitasking in a fast-paced environment


*Motivated worker

*Excellent conversation & writing skills for communicating in a professional way with clients

*Can change gears to suit immediate needs

*Can work 2 full days per week: choice of days flexible but will be the same each week and at least one *must* be a weekend day. Our open hours are 12-8pm, so expect to be here a little before and a little after that each day you work (allowing extra time for parking if you are driving in)

*Secure transportation during all seasons

*Ability to occasionally support the studio off-site at regional tattoo conventions/expos

What else do we value?

*Social media marketing experience

*Working knowledge of Photoshop

*Wordpress website/blog content management experience

Special Note: If you are looking to become an apprentice or explore a career in tattooing, we appreciate the interest but this is not the position for you. This job will not turn into an apprenticeship. We are looking to hire someone who enjoys talking to many different people, wearing a million different hats in the course of one day, and who enjoys helping keep a system running smoothly. If that sounds like you, we'd love to meet you! Send us a message and tell us why you think you'd be a good fit.
