UNIQUELY YOU TOGETHER HARRODS

Six-week contract? More like 18 years

I remember my first day at Harrods, I joined on a six-week contract, and 18 years later I'm still here.

I've had the pleasure of attending three long service awards; a completely surreal moment. It's not every day you get to celebrate with your directors.

Working at airports is an amazing place to be, you meet people from all over the world. You feel really proud when they return to the store to say hello because they remember being served by you. The positive impact of serving a customer is phenomenal. You may think you're just doing your job, but it's a memory that they treasure. 

I've been nurtured by my management really well. I've had the opportunity to run two terminals; my second favourite memory. It was really exciting and fast paced. My favourite memory so far has to be when I trained all new managers. It was great because I always hear how well they are doing and their stories.

If you're looking for your next role in the Airports team, I have a piece of advice. Harrods is a magical place where you can grow. They really support you and let you be yourself, you can make a career and life out of it as I did.
