The Role

The Atelier Delight Lead plays a crucial role in ensuring the AD Team delivers exemplary service to our clients. The Team Lead is responsible for managing Associates, maintaining service quality and optimising team capabilities to serve the Josh Wood Colour Atelier and its clientele.

You will help the AD Team serve clients in every way possible, ranging from answering questions about the Atelier and what services we offer to assisting clients with the right operatives and keeping them informed of new appointment availability.  All with the overall goal of genuinely delighting our clients with an unrivalled service experience.

If we treat our clients with respect and care, we will deliver value to them, build loyalty and have a healthy, growing financially sustainable business.


Josh Wood is a world-leading colourist, an Executive Board Member of the British Beauty Council and a regular host on ITV’s This Morning.  He founded the Josh Wood Colour Atelier in 2011, with co-founder Jonathan Davies, as the home of their handpicked dream team of colourists and stylists.  In 2018 they launched their award-winning range of hair colour products, most recently described by the Times as “the hero of lockdown”.
