About You
We're looking for an enthusiastic individual to support our Data Protection Team providing assistance across a number of our innovative data protection workstreams. You will be a recent graduate, having studied either Law or Information Security with an interest in GDPR. You will have strong interpersonal skills, be highly organised and have a keen eye for detail.

This is an exciting and demanding entry-level role where communication and people skills matter more than hands-on technical knowledge. Experience within a retail environment would be advantageous.

What to Expect
You will support the Data Protection team to provide the Harrods business with a comprehensive Data Protection Programme for the Harrods Group. You will be involved with a number of our data protection projects which ensure we continue to protect personal data in compliance with the law. This is achieved by working alongside our data protection team, legal team and information security team, performing activities such as reporting and monitoring the completion of company-wide e-learning, the roll-out of updated training and communications plans, the co-ordination of mini-projects, information gathering, data analysis, and creating and maintaining stakeholder relationships.

What is important?

Accuracy and attention to detail are so important to our team; we are expected to be consistent and the business relies on us for their needs. Our team is approachable and efficient, we pride ourselves on being trusted advisors. We are also very hardworking and driven and are looking for a self-motivated individual to join us in this newly created role.

Our promise to you

At Harrods we believe nothing is impossible. We drive ourselves and inspire others to always push for more. This passion to exceed is what sets us apart. We are proud to be a place where standing out means being yourself
