Job Summary

ABOUT STAFFING supplies top quality candidates to our clients and excellent career opportunities to our candidates. We currently have an opportunity for an experienced Leather Craftsman for our downtown Calgary client. The client is moving locations to the Foothills Industrial area (SE) in August of 2018, so flexibility to work in both locations is a must.

ABOUT The Company

Our client is a leather goods manufacturer and retailer catering to special events and corporate clients mainly. They are a young company on the rise in Alberta and are expanding operations across Canada and eventually into the United States. This client manufactures and sells products such as bracelets, wallets, clutches, key chains, luggage tags, and more!

ABOUT the Position

Working on a part-time basis to start, the position will eventually require a full-time permanent person to work with the company long-term. The Leather Craftsman will be required to manufacture by hand all of the products our client sells. All tools required will be provided by the client, which range from hammers and mallets to needles, blades, and punches. Key components of this position will be leather dying, hand stitching, sanding, and packaging of products. Industrial sewing experience would be a major bonus.

Training is provided to ensure that the high-quality standards are met, but experience working in a similar position and environment is required.

The environment is working in a shop setting on the floor below a set of offices. The office is pet-friendly and any candidates considered must be comfortable being around dogs. You will be working alone for the majority of the time, so you must be comfortable working independently. The client has office equipment to support you sitting or standing while you work.


You are uniquely skilled with your hands and have a keen eye for detail and quality. You have experience in a similar position making things with your hands and manual tools. Ideal backgrounds include Leather Workers, Patternmakers, Industrial Seamstresses, or Jewelers. You are superb with time management and can work with production schedules and lead times. You have good with communication in English, as you will need to take direction from your Manager, especially during the training period. You must be flexible with your hours. This position begins as part-time with as low as 10-15 hours per week but will get much busier and require 40+ hours as business demands increase due to an expanding market and the busier periods around Stampede and Christmas time.

Most importantly, you need to enjoy working with your hands creating something beautiful out of leather.

ABOUT Compensation

This position will pay a wage between $18.00 and $20.00 per hour based on experience and qualifications.
