About the Role

This key role within the Harrods ESG team looks after two Harrods’ important ESG functions - the 'Community' and 'Our People' pillars of the Harrods Path ESG strategy.

The impact the role has is huge, and you will be responsible for bringing our community of colleagues along the journey. 

This role drives forward two pivotal aspects of the ESG strategy, and has a tangible impact on the business - both in terms of embedding our ESG strategy amongst our colleagues (a key aspect of how we will deliver our strategy), and the impact Harrods has on our wider community, by how we give back as an organisation.

This position sits alongside other Sustainability Managers and two Sustainability Executives. They report to the Head of Corporate Affairs, however Sustainability Manager works closely with business directorates related to their role. For this role, that would mean working closely with HR, Employee Experience, and Communications.

You will also have:

  • Good relationship management & excellent communication skills, able to partner senior management.
  • Project management, organisational and activity tracking skills
  • A keen understanding of DEI and people-related ESG opportunities, legislation and regulation.
  • Knowledge of brand identity and its importance
  • Able to work collaboratively, cross-functionally, and bring those teams together
