UNIQUELY YOU TOGETHER HARRODS

Confessions of a Senior Online Copywriter

Four years at Harrods, tell us a little about your career journey?

I started at Harrods as a Junior Online Copywriter in April 2015 which involved writing up to 45 commercially-focused product descriptions a day across all categories. I was then promoted to Online Copywriter in July 2016 and became a mentor to three Juniors. In addition to product descriptions, I wrote SEO-driven banner copy and brand page overviews. Since the start of 2018, I have been a Senior Online Copywriter. I now line manage six Juniors, sub-product copy, act as a point of contact for Trade and action amends on the live site. 

 
What has been your favourite memory so far?
My favourite memory is also my proudest moment. I was nominated for employee of the month. It felt so rewarding because it wasn’t just my team that nominated me, it was my colleagues from other teams. It’s great that Harrods recognise people for doing good work.

Final words?
I look back and think wow, the team has grown so much! We started off as a team of six and now we will be a team of 20 people. There are always so many opportunities here. Everyone on the team is fantastic and our manager is so supportive. Sometimes I lack self-confidence, which is human, but having such a good support network gives me the confidence to progress and move forward. I love telling people I work for Harrods.

What is your uniquely you?
I travelled for a year and a half and it was the best experience ever. I loved seeing different cultures and trying different foods. I met so many people and made a lot of friends along the way. Colombia has to be my favourite country - it was lush, vibrant, beautiful and interesting.
