IT Early Careers 

 

Deciding your next step after university can be very daunting, especially if you don’t have any previous work experience, or feel it’s too early to narrow down all of your interests.
 
Here at Harrods, we have three unique opportunities for those keen to pursue a career in IT; three graduate’s the opportunity to join our graduate scheme and one undergraduate a 12-month industrial placement with us. Take a look below.


 
IT Industrial Placement (one role)
 
If you’re still at University, our IT Industrial Placement is a great opportunity to broaden your understanding of the various teams, skills, and systems that bring our wonderful store, sites, and back of house areas to life.
 
Spread across 12 months, you will have the opportunity to learn from different areas of IT; Digital, Supply Chain and Security. We’ll tailor the scheme to the areas you’re interested in, provide technical and non-technical training and you’ll earn a salary of £18,000 whilst you’re doing it.
 
We’ll support you every step of the way, with a mentor and a friend at work to lean on who has been in your shoes. And once you’ve completed the placement, you’ll be ready to go back to university to finish your studies, and perhaps come back to join our graduate scheme.
 
 
IT Graduate Scheme (three roles)
 
Our IT graduate scheme is a great opportunity to develop a wide range of technical and non-technical skills to kick-start your career.
 
Spread across 24 months, you’ll experience the growing IT landscape as it happens behind the scenes, with six-month rotations across our programme management office and service management office in year one. You will learn all about delivering projects, uncover how IT plays a key role in bringing luxury retail to life and attend various training to help you excel in your role.
 
In year two we’ll tailor the scheme to you and your interests. You’ll choose the three four-month rotations you want to take. From Project Management, Business Analysis to Data Analytics, Infrastructure and Cyber Security – there’s something for everyone. You’ll earn a starting salary of £28,750 with incremental pay increases as you successfully complete your rotations.
 
Through mentoring and tailored trained, you’ll be coached and supported, and have a friend at work to lean on who has been in your shoes. And once you’ve completed the scheme, you’ll be ready to develop your career with us, in the area of IT that you decide is for you.
