Sewing Technician

  • VO83879


Description

Stitch the Gap requires a Sewing Technician. You will work under the direction of the Sewing Tutor and be expected to assist with the implementation of sewing patterns and sewing machine setup and troubleshooting. You will help ensure the smooth running of each class.
The successful candidate will be ready to work with all students to promote sewing skills, social and emotional development. The ideal candidate will be caring, patient and understanding.

The Sewing Technician must be attentive to the unique needs of each student and be able to identify proper solutions when students encounter issues.

You should have strong interpersonal skills, as you’ll be collaborating with the tutor, working with students of all ages and talking to families.

We’re committed to building brighter futures, improving our environment and increasing the opportunities for our students, and we’re hoping you’re excited to be part of that experience.
