Shoe Repair London, Handbag Repairs London - The Restory, London


Join Our Team


Atelier Assistant

The role

The Restory is an on-demand restoration service for luxury shoes and handbags and we have developed the largest range of advanced restoration skills available in the United Kingdom...probably the whole of Europe and possibly the world. And if we haven't yet, we will do. 

We are a team of designers, makers, restorationists, cobblers, shoeblacks and sneakerheads.

We are looking for atelier assistants with an eye for detail, a willingness to learn and a can-do attitude to join our growing busy team.

This is an entry-level position for a creative worker who appreciates luxury items and is eager to learn the art of restoration. But its not a job for the precious. You will be expected to work very hard, get a little messy and both contribute to and leverage your team.  You will start by carrying out basic cleaning assignments, and graduate from there.  Mostly you will learn on the job and develop the right set of skills under the tutelage of our small but supremely talented and innovative team.

You will have demonstrated interest or experience in fashion, leather goods or the making-arts.


  • Willing to learn and develop new skills and processes

  • Patient and attentive

  • Self-motivated

  • Team player

  • Excellent attention to detail

  • Creative thinking and artistic skills

  • Knowledge of leather and other materials is a plus

If you are ready for a career in a fast moving and highly creative environment,  then apply with a covering letter and up to date CV outlining your relevant work history.


Job type: Paid, permanent and full time.

Location: London
