Your responsibilities will also include:

  • Driving customer acquisition, quality, and brand equity through packaging decisions.
  • Ensuring quick and efficient delivery of design elements in response to sales opportunities.
  • Developing best-in-class products in line with the strategic design direction.
  • Creating and amending individual print designs, manage colours, layers, and distribution to suppliers.
  • Assisting in managing packaging details, including typography, graphic layout, and print specifications.
  • Ensuring packaging is developed from concept to detailed design brief, achieving right-first-time samples.
  • Understanding suppliers' print capabilities and ensure correct interpretation of design briefs.
  • Collating and communicating pre-season inputs from suppliers, providing clear feedback to the team.

About You:

You will be someone who possesses a deep understanding of the bridge and luxury retail landscape, having built extensive knowledge over the course of your experience that you can leverage to the Harrods’ advantage. You’ll be highly creative with an exceptional taste level, ensuring your designs align with our prestigious brand. You will also be highly organized, able to manage multiple projects efficiently, and maintain a flexible approach to adapt to the dynamic needs of the luxury retail environment.

You will also be:

  • Creative, innovative and driven.
  • Confident to challenge and represent what good looks like to the wider business.
  • Positive, ‘can-do’ outlook.
  • Strong stakeholder management with influencing skills and be able to bring people on our journey.
  • Consistently strive for exceptional result.

About Us:

Our 175th anniversary will see the Knightsbridge store become a stage for our legacy of firsts, our house of world-leading brands and our reputation for exceptional. We want you to come and be a part of all this - and help us deliver exceptional service that represents our authority as a long-standing icon, industry-leader and innovator. Inspired by our past, celebrating our present and focusing on our future, you’ll be joining a team with the belief that anything is possible. What makes you different makes us exceptional.

Help us make the impossible possible for our customers and we’ll do something remarkable for you. As well as offering a friendly environment to inspire your best work, we provide abundant opportunities and support to build an exceptional career across the varied specialisms of our business. 

In return you’ll receive an excellent benefits package, including a company pension, flexible working, 25 days’ holiday, and your birthday off, up to 33% in-store discount (including across our food hall and restaurants) and a season ticket loan.
