What I Do: Meet Roisin, Production Associate

Friday, December 28th, 2018

Next up on our Chupi Team What I Do series is the lovely Roisin, Production Associate here in Chupi

What does your role in the team involve?

My role is Production Associate at Chupi. Day to day, this involves working on bespoke orders for customers, looking after stock levels for Atrium and keeping our stock management system in studio up to date. There’s never a quiet day in production, but it’s amazing getting to work hands on with all of the diamonds and sparkly pieces!

How did you get here?

My previous background had been in administrative and financial roles, but I always knew that I wanted to work in a more creative environment. When the job in Chupi came up I could see how the experience I had built up would suit the role. It was my chance to get working in the type of company I was interested in.

What’s the best thing about working for Chupi?

There are so many things I love about working for Chupi, but the team is definitely one of the best things. Everyone is so friendly and supportive and we have a lot of fun together. Working in production we also get to see the new pieces that come in first which is always very exciting.

Top three tips for getting into your role?

  1. If you’re not sure about what you want to do, try to build up experience at the things you’re good at first.
  2. Be flexible and volunteer to help where you can. This is especially valuable in smaller companies where a lot of the time, it’s all hands on deck! It’s also great because it means you get a taste of other aspects of the business.
  3. Don’t be afraid to take a chance on something new. Even if you worry that your previous roles might have pigeon-holed you into a certain type of job.

The chances are the skills that you’ve been building up are transferable. So long as you’re willing to work hard in a new environment, there’s no reason why you can’t do it.

People or businesses or brands you admire?

I was a big fan of the brand before I started working at Chupi. Since then I’ve also had the pleasure of working with Chupi herself who is endlessly positive and hardworking. I also love My Shining Armour, it’s inspiring to see the amazing business Nicki Hoyne has created in my home town of Kilkenny.

Favourite Chupi piece and why?

I adore my solid gold Love Heart heart ring, I wear it everyday and feel like something is missing if I don’t have it on!

Can’t live without?

My Chilly’s bottle! It keeps my water cold all day at work and I haven’t bought a plastic water bottle since I got it.

I’m also loving the Glossier Solution right now, I’ve only recently bought this but it’s quickly become a staple in my skincare routine.
