About you 


You will need exceptional interpersonal skills, as well as proficiency in conflict management / resolution techniques. You will require a high standard of personal appearance and a level of health and fitness that enables you to carry out the full duties associated with this position, which may include dealing with confrontational situations, as well as standing or patrolling for long periods of time. 


The role also necessitates a 4 on 4 off shift pattern that may include working at other Company premises and will include weekends, night work, Bank Holidays / Public Holidays as normal days of work. Additionally, extra hours and/or days of work maybe required and/or changed by the department, but with adequate notice (typically 48 hours) and therefore, a flexible approach is needed.

We will provide intensive training alongside new colleagues when you join, and we will continue to invest in your training and development at Harrods. Long-term career opportunities are excellent, and we are proud of the length of service within our security team, with many staying and taking on management positions.
