UNIQUELY YOU TOGETHER HARRODS

Straight out of School: Ammara


I’m Ammara, I joined the School Leaver programme in September this year. I’m currently completing my first six-month placement, which is in Sportswear. When I was finishing school, I knew I didn’t want to go to university. I was set on getting a full-time job and really eager to kick start my career. 

I began researching School Leaver Programmes and knew Harrods was for me. The programme offers the perfect transition from school to professional full-time working life. I’m really enjoying every aspect of it from the shop floor to completing the assignments for our level 3 retail qualification with the Fashion Retail Academy. 

 This programme is unique because of the exposure to so many different parts of the business, and the support you receive from every aspect of the course; from our managers on the shop-floor, our college tutor to our Learning and Development Advisor. We also meet once a month as a group to find out what everyone has been up to and for training. I was pleasantly surprised at how much training you get with the role. I’ve been able to attend training to learn about our customers and how to deliver the best service. It helps you with practical skills that you can go and deploy on the shop-floor straight away. 

My favourite memory so far has to be attending the welcome day in July before we joined Harrods, it was a great opportunity for our families to get to see what the course is about and a nice little ice breaker before we officially started the role.
