About the Role

An exciting opportunity has risen in a new team within Supply Chain as a Supply Chain Planning Assistant Manager, playing a key role in implementing our Supplier Engagement Strategy.

Whether you’re a recent school, college or university leaver, or you’re looking to restart your career in an exciting new field, at Harrods we firmly believe in offering exciting career opportunities.

A key aspect of your role involves leading Purchase Order Management team, working closely with external suppliers, merchandising & buying teams to ensure accurate delivery dates and valid delivery windows for all inbound Purchase Orders (POs).

This role reports into the Supply Chain Planning Manager and is based in Hammersmith.
