The Green Kiss
#109 - 3531 Uptown Boulevard
Who We Are:
Established in 2011, The Green Kiss is a Canadian Green Beauty Company committed to inspiring people to use the healthiest and most effective personal care products possible.
Our mission is to lovingly empower people to take care of their skin, bodies, and families with products that are healthy and effective both for themselves and the environment. For those new to green beauty, the principle goal is to reduce the toxic load that people are unintentionally applying to their bodies, and in turn, rinsing off into our ecosystems.
The Green Kiss was built on creating goodness in the world and making a massive positive impact and change. Our love for humanity and the planet are what drives everything we do. We are based in Victoria BC with a brick-and-mortar store and headquarters at Uptown Shopping Centre. We owe our longevity to our commitment to clean beauty, to our people, and to the incredible connections we have in our community here in Victoria, and across Canada. People trust us because we are strict about what we carry and we are unwavering about our love and service for our community.
Who You Are:
Customer service, sales, and writing truly excite you! You have strong written communication skills, and blog/website copywriting skills, and you have experience using both. Skincare and makeup have been interests of yours since you were young. You are passionate about health and wellness and you seek out any chance you can get to know your community and build new relationships. You have a natural gift in bringing joy to people’s lives and caring for them in a way where they feel seen and heard.
You get a thrill out of going above and beyond to make a customer’s day. You excel at doing this, and you go at it all while keeping the business’s best interests at heart. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and excel at fostering strong relationships with others. You are looking to work in an environment that is filled with positivity, growth opportunities, and incentives where you are rewarded for your hard work and results!
You are a go-getter. You like achieving things, crossing off “to-do” lists, and seriously going after sales targets! It excites you to work for a business where love is the driving force and fast business growth is the result. You live and breathe being a part of a team in a growing and fast-paced small business environment where every action you take makes an impact.
