Meet Diani- Retail Academy Delegate

We caught up with Diani who is one of  School Leaver Delegates and she tells us what it's like to be on the programme.

How would you summarise your experience so far?

I have already learnt so much being on the school leaver programme - Retail Academy. I look forward to attending monthly sessions at the Fashion Retail Academy and regular workshops at Harrods. These have elevated my performance at work, by providing knowledge and guidance that improves the way I handle real-life situations.

Why would you recommend doing the Retail Academy?

I would recommend the Retail Academy to anyone that has a passion for selling, learning and socialising, as all three of these things are present at Harrods every day. It is an incredible opportunity to enter straight into the world of work, without the need for university.

Why did you choose to do RA instead of attending University?

I chose to apply for the Retail Academy instead of going to University because it gives me the opportunity to learn things that directly link to my career path while being able to work full-time in a job that I am passionate about.
