After graduating, I was able to secure a place on the IT graduate scheme. This experience gave me an opportunity to see what I was good at and what I wanted to do as a career. This led me to apply to be a Business Analyst.
We spend a lot of time working with the business as well as the teams within IS, so good communication skills and the ability to build relationships are a must. Retail and IT knowledge also play a key part.
Working in a place as large and diverse as Harrods gives me an opportunity to work on a variety of projects: since joining IS just over a year ago, I have worked on a PoS project, Christmas Grotto, and the Gift Bureau.
I used to work on the shop floor selling ready-to-wear. I was very curious and I wanted to find out what happens behind the scenes, using my shop floor knowledge to contribute to the buying business.
Passion, enthusiasm, initiative and advanced Excel knowledge.
Working with the biggest and most luxurious brands in the world.
I read somewhere that a balanced diet is chocolate in both hands so I would say the Confectionery Hall!
I wanted to be a part of such a growing eCommerce site for an internationally renowned store. I used to work for a single designer brand and was excited to move on to a multi-label environment.
Looking at our sales for the previous day and knowing that I was involved in selecting those products for the website is a very rewarding feeling.
I’d love to spend some time in By Appointment and get to know the Harrods customer better.
I would put it towards a Balmain jacket or a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour.
