You must be deeply rooted in your community (South Africa). It would work to your advantage to have well-established contacts within the eyewear industry. And you should certainly know your territory and its people inside-out (like culture, characteristics, interactions, taxes and customs).

Who are we looking for?

  • A profound knowledge of sales and distribution and a completed high school education at least.
  • A go-getter, a great communicator, and someone who could sell ice to an Eskimo - persistently.
  • Prior experience of having sold eyewear.
  • Black white green yellow- Really doesn't matter.
  • Ability to speak Afrikaans ( Added advantage).

What you’ll do:

  • Cold call optometrist and place Slaughter & Fox Eyewear in their stores. (Repeat)
  • Cold cold fashion houses and other retail stores and identify potential partnerships.

You did a start up and it failed - awesome - talk to us - time to take revenge.


Working with us will be like back packing in a foreign country even if you are a South African.

  • Competitive salary, incentive on sales and sign ups, and equity.
  • Health insurance and gym memberships if you work full time.
  • Your choice of your equipment – whatever fancy stuff you like. Mac or whatever.
  • Long weekend getaway vouchers. So you can see some potential clients.
  • Secretarial support to set appointments and email follow ups.
  • Anything outside of work, we will be there.
