We’re Hiring! Senior Stylist

Décor lover? Eye for design? Spirited? Determined? Resilient?

We are looking for a highly creative, gifted and enthusiastic individual to grow, and ultimately lead, our décor styling team – someone who is a natural leader, works well under pressure, has grit and can thrive in an atmosphere of design excellence. Our industry is fast paced and highly pressurised. Within this we are 100% focused on delivering an extremely high standard of creative work. If this sounds like you then read on but before we tell you more, here’s a bit about us:


Hire Society is a creative, vibrant and cutting-edge event design company based in Wynberg, Sandton. We are currently an office team of four but we’re anticipating growing back to our pre-COVID size of about eight to twelve ‘office’ employees in the next 2 years. We style events from concept generation through to execution in the areas of event design, décor, floristry, lighting and furniture. We are passionate about both corporate brands and private events (such as weddings and birthdays) working with exceptional design skill in both areas.

Ideal candidates for this position will have long term hands-on experience in one or more of the following: floristry design and execution (florists), the styling of high-end events, on-trend décor magazine features, lifestyle shoots or private homes (interior decorators or décor stylists), or similar. However, candidates with similar experience in the fashion or theatre industries may also be suitable. It is primarily essential that you have a great eye for design, are able to style well and can do so under tight timelines and working long hours.

You must be comfortable working within existing processes and be willing to work collaboratively with the styling and client service teams, but also be able to bring new concepts and problem-solving ideas to the table.

The ability to balance artistic desires with commercial needs and achieve brand-consistent imagery is essential. Successful candidates must also be able to effectively manage multiple tasks and projects at once, without sacrificing quality.
