Are you organised, confident, and imaginative?

We have a fantastic opportunity for a graduate of surveying, construction management or architecture to join the Harrods Store Development Team as an Assistant Project Manager.

We have just embarked on a c.300million CAPEX investment programme to ensure we fully utilise our retail space to its’ full potential, which will see some major renovations to our iconic Knightsbridge store.

As an Assistant Project Manager in our Store Development team, you will manage wide-ranging projects from start to finish. You will consult with varied specialists, from design teams and lighting consultants to electrical and structural engineers. As you will also be liaising frequently throughout projects with external clients, it is important that you have both confidence and excellent communication skills. You will be working on projects across multiple locations, including our Knightsbridge store, Hammersmith offices, Thatcham Distribution Centre and airport stores, so flexibility regarding travel is essential.

Projects at Harrods are fast-moving, so you must feel able to maintain the highest possible standards while working to a deadline. You will also relish the challenge of uniting a brand’s vision with the Harrods Retail team’s requirements, thus producing the unrivalled visual aesthetic that makes Harrods so iconic.

You will have a degree in surveying, construction management or architecture, coupled with professional experience in project management. A strong understanding of contractual procedures and knowledge of managing office, hotel, or retail fit-outs on-site is essential.

If you have a solid professional background, strong influencing and negotiating skills and the ability to consult with design teams, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, Surveyors, and Structural Engineers, this could be the role for you.

Our standards are high – could you exceed them?
