Position Title: Gallery Sales Associate & Barista, Full-Time

Start Date: Immediately

    Job Description

    As a sales associate, you'll be working at our beautiful gallery in the Distillery District in Toronto. During a typical work day you'll open the gallery and coffee bar, making sure everything is tidy and set in place. You'll greet customers, talk sports, and help them pick out the perfect item or artwork. You'll receive new products, add them to our inventory system and get them ready to be sold in-store and on our online shop. You'll look out for online orders and prep them to be shipped. You'll work on merchandise displays, using your your knowledge of current and historic sports to set up timely displays—and ones that tell a story. As a barista, you'll train on the art of making the perfect espresso, help make coffees and espresso drinks on the ARENA Coffee Bar side, serve alcoholic drinks responsibly, all while keeping everything clean and tidy.

    You'll work with our small team on pretty much everything, and can focus on what your specific strengths and interests are. If you've got an eye for photography, videos, and social content, you'll help with posting and driving engagement on our social platforms. Your goal each day will be to help make The SPORT Gallery a haven for existing sports fans, and a place where yet-to-be-fans can learn and gain an appreciation for the history and art of sport.

        About The SPORT Gallery

        We're not your average sports store. The SPORT Gallery is home The SPORT Archive, one of the most significant collections of North American sports photography, and is therefore more than a retail space. SPORT magazine started in 1946 – eight years prior to Sports Illustrated – and quickly trailblazed its way into the public consciousness. We keep SPORT’s memory alive by preserving over 250,000 original negatives and transparencies, and through our physical locations, which allow visitors to travel back in time and experience the golden era of sports.

        The apparel, headwear, accessories, and books we feature are all designed to mirror what you see in the pages of SPORT and in the museum-quality prints on our walls (which we produce in-store in Toronto). Rather than offer “on-field” jerseys or other modern, easily found styles, we work with premium brands to create one-of-a-kind products that tell a story. Our goal is to stay true to our SPORT roots and to communicate the past. To work at The SPORT Gallery is to understand this connection and help tell our unique story.

        The SPORT Gallery is hiring both full-time and part-time gallery sales associates and also baristas for our Arena coffee bar. We’re looking for hard-working, sales-driven, goal-oriented people who – most importantly – live for sport. We’re looking for people who “get it,” who understand that the final score is only one small part of the vast and compelling sporting landscape and can ensure this ethos is communicated in all that we do.
