Meet Stephanie - Assistant Buyer

Stephanie talks about changing roles within Harrods and becoming an Assistant Buyer for Designer Collections, Classics and Millinery.

What persuaded you to change roles within Harrods?

I have worked in the buying office with concessions for 2 years and have really enjoyed the role. I applied for the Assistant Buyer position as I have always had an interest in Own Bought and learning this side would give me an overall view of the business and long term strategy. I am lucky I work in a very supportive team that encouraged me to apply.

"Having high ambitions helps me have clear career goals" 

What challenges have you faced and how did you overcome them?

I think every new role is a challenge as you are learning new processes. I think having a positive attitude, putting in the time to learn the role and asking questions is the best way to succeed.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?

I definitely want to continue working in fashion, I would like to progress to a Buyer and then eventually a GMM. Having high ambitions helps me have clear career goals and gives me something to aim for.

What is the best career advice you have ever received?

Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.
