Delivering world class service to Harrods’ most loyal clients and consistently exceeding their expectations is in our DNA. It goes without saying that our clients expect simplicity, ease, pace and most importantly personalised service, tailored to their needs, when they visit us. As a Personal Shopper, you will pro-actively deliver exceptional sales performance through your world class approach to customer service.

Our Personal Shopping department is focused on providing exceptional service levels to ensure that our customers enjoy the best shopping experience through our Assisted Shopping service to further build their engagement and loyalty.

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.

About The Role

As a Personal Shopper you will work across the whole store, where no day will be the same. Below is a snapshot of some of your responsibilities:

  • Management of the customer journey, from initial product selections through to  transaction processing, stock picking and dispatch.
  • You’ll proactively search for selling and service opportunities with every client and search  for new opportunities across the store which the client may not be familiar with to  encourage broader selling. 
  • Use selling opportunities to expand a genuine and loyal client base through referrals and word of mouth.
  • Serve with an omni-channel approach, via traditional retail ‘on-site’ sales as well driving proactive sales, leads and acquisitions through virtual channels.
  • Acquire, build and maintain strong relationships with clients. You will take the time to truly connect on an individual basis to know how we can best meet their needs and exceed expectations.
  • Implement the Art of Selling in each interaction with a client, whether face to face or virtually and deliver exceptional sales and service results.

About You

To excel in this role you'll have the following experiences and knowledge:

  • You are a client-led seller with exceptional customer service skills, evidenced by consistent customer service results.
  • Emotionally intelligent with an ability to communicate and connect with a diverse range of customers and colleagues –across verbal, written and digital formats with an ability to “flex” to customer’s needs.
  • Demonstrate a passion for delivering a consistently premium service experience for customers.
  • Have the ability to proactively generate leads and sales from either existing or new client base and seek opportunities to sell broadly across the store.
  • Naturally curious about the luxury customer and their lifestyle to understand how best to cater to them.
