A day in the life when you’re front of house. You wake up early and scramble to iron a shirt for work. You face angry chefs all day and you get little support from your management to grow in your career. Oh, and you had to get a taxi home at 1am because the night bus was cancelled. All in a day’s work right? It doesn’t have to be this way.


At Harrods, we can offer you a front of house role where you’ll finish by 9pm. Work/life balance is so important to us that you will never have to work those double shifts anymore. We have a fantastic management team who will look to develop your skills and give you exposure in different restaurants (we’ve got 15 in store by the way). Our chef team is world class, working with the best ingredients and creating some of the most iconic food in London. On top of this, you’ll get an amazing discount in store, subsidised food with the break time to actually eat your lunch, generous holiday entitlement, and access to our employee only GP, dry cleaners and pharmacy. We want to make sure you’re happy and healthy because that’s when you’re at your best.


What do we want from you? In short, we want your passion. We want people who live for their customers. You’ll have the chance to be part of one of the most well-known brands in the world. With your smile, care and attention to detail, you will help us to give customers the experience of a lifetime. We have restaurants that suit every taste so we need a team that reflects this. If you’ve been working in fine dining or a local café there are opportunities here for you to develop and grow.


Next time you finish a shift at 1am and start to wonder why you’re doing this and that you need a change. Think of Harrods.


Please note that we are currently recruiting for permanent roles, which require full flexibility, 5 days out of 7.
