Our ambition is to be the number one department store in the world for luxury branded merchandise, maintaining an unprecedented level of retail standards, expertise, customer service and profitability. We are bringing on board some of the highest profile partners in restaurants and aspire to create a world class dining destination know not only for its food, but its service. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Business Process Manager to join a passionate, supporting and dynamic team, all within our iconic Knightsbridge store.

About The Role

The Business Process Manager role, at an executive level, is a multi-faceted position with the responsibility of seamlessly managing the back-end administrative processes within the operation of the Restaurants and Kitchens (R&K) directorate to ultimately empower front-end operators to excel. This role will oversee Culinary and General Administration, Business Performance, and the continuous service delivery to internal and external stakeholders across the business in what they need from the directorate.

In this role, you’ll ensure new processes are designed or existing processes are redesigned effectively and with the correct controls and measures in place to achieve objectives; you’ll establish KPI’s and metrics to measure performance and monitor progress. You’ll collaborate cross-functionally to design, develop, and implement compelling reports, dashboards and data visualization representing business activity.

You’ll work with stakeholders in navigating change, ensuring timely and effective outcomes. As a trusted advisor, you’ll provide support and advice, being the primary contact for non-operational needs from R&K, delivering solutions aligned with the business strategy.

About You

The ideal candidate must flex between strategic thinking for wider leadership roles and tactical responsiveness to operations, ensuring successful outcomes.

  • Excellence in stakeholder management and relationship building
  • Developed analytical skills with the ability to solve complex and ambiguous problems 
  • Intellectually curious with a passion for driving innovation and change 
  • Well-developed communication, negotiation, and influencing skills 
  • Ability to prioritise and balance multiple tasks or projects 
  • Ability to see beyond the parameters of a single project to identify patterns, risks, trends and strategic context more broadly within the organisation.
