We’re Looking to Grow our Team!

Opportunities to join our small, close knit team at made590 don’t pop up very often! We are looking to grow our team with two separate positions looking to be filled within our dynamic business!

Design Role

The first role we are looking to fill is that of a Junior to Intermediate Graphic designer.

The graphic design role is for 1 weekday every week.

The 2nd part of the role is to be part of our retail shop floor team, which will require weekend work, varying between occasional and regular depending on the time of year.

This role is a great opportunity for someone that wants to work with an established company that has been designing and producing for 14 years. Would suit a freelance designer who wants a fixed regular role. The position would also be perfect for someone starting in the industry that wants to work within a company that does all aspects in-house and wants to learn everything there is to know about graphic design within a small company. You’ll be working alongside a small dedicated team that works on our website and the design side of the business. Ideal for someone looking for a varied design role that incorporates retail and design, is a good all-rounder that loves variation. The successful applicant would be someone who thrives at working independently (at times), must have a good work ethic that can be self managed and a can do attitude!

There is a definite room to grow within the role and take on more responsibility over time and by showing initiative.

Roles in the Graphic Design position include:

Design of our advertising collateral – for both web and print


Photo Editing

Newsletter Design

Promotional images

Images for social media

Blog writing

General office admin such as ordering swing tags, labels, printing sheets etc

Website work:

Retail work is a must in order to keep up to date with our customer and fast turnover of stock. We provide exceptional customer service, which you will be trained in but retail experience and or an interest in this is preferred.

Experience Necessary in:

Retail, preferably fashion retail.

Training provided:

Retail Customer Service Role

We are also looking to fill a second position, with a new member for our customer service team!

We’re looking for experienced sales staff member for a permanent casual retail position 2-3 days a week with a mixture of weekday and weekend work.

We are a small, close knit team looking for a friendly, experienced sales person to join us in a long term position which will include a sales based role in the store, as well as behind the scenes stock work. We require someone who is available Mondays, Thursday day/ late night shopping and one day on weekends with the possibility of more shifts down the track and depending on availability. This job will include working as part of a team some days and independently on others.

Retail experience is necessary, but you will be provided with training for all aspects of your position at made590. Computer knowledge is preferred, and if you’ve worked on a POS or Vend system, even better!

New Online and Instore: Nigella Dress

So, if you haven’t noticed, it’s dresses galore around here! We’ve listened to you and we’ve delivered! Dresses seem to be the most popular choice with our Made590 customers of late, so we’ve taken on the feedback and we’ve delivered! Although we’re all about the layering here, and well, we kind of think we’re pretty damn good at it, we know some days you just need to throw on a pretty dress in a fun fabric and easy-to-wear-shape and be done with it, right?!

Enter the Nigella! Instead of US telling you why she’s loved, here are some reasons why YOU, our customers, love her (and own more than one!).

Ladies love the Nigella because of the:

1) square neckline, it’s not too high – for those who are on the bustier side – and not too low. It shows off the perfect amount of decolletage!

2) It has sleeve coverage!

3) It is knee length

4) She has two front pockets AND

5) A comfortable gathered, waist.

We’ve taken all of your favourite features and details and created the perfect dress.

She’s available instore and online now in an array of fabrics that range from uber fun and colourful, as well as some more understated fabrics with neutral bases for work.

Available in XS- XL.

Get in quick!




We’re Hiring!
