UNIQUELY YOU TOGETHER HARRODS

Welcome to our family

Gordon (also known as Mr G) has been with us for five years. On your very first day, he’s the first person to welcome you into our family. This is his story. 

I started my career at Harrods 5 years ago in Retail as a Sales Manager. After successfully completing an internal secondment in HR – I secured a role as a Learning Advisor. And here I am, a Retail Learning Delivery Manager with a key responsibility; presenting our 3-day welcome.

Within my first week of being at Harrods, I immediately came to the realisation that I had secured a role with my dream employer. Talking to my customers and colleagues gave me so much insight into our company history and I became curious to find out more. After getting in touch with the Sebastian, Archivist for Harrods Company Archive I started reading and collecting Harrods books and staff magazines dating back to the 1950s. 

To date, I have collected so much memorabilia that I now have my own mini archive! The collection even has its own name - Historic Harrods, and what a privilege that is. The Harrods Company Archive team and I have to let one another know when we’re bidding for items at auctions to avoid bidding against each other (sorry for those odd few occasions Sebastian).

I feel so proud to work at Harrods, and I genuinely can’t believe I’m here. Harrods reputation of being the most famous luxurious department store in the world coupled with its history spanning 170 years, makes me realise that I am part of something truly spectacular. I wake up in the morning finding myself singing into work because I’m excited to meet and welcome our new starters for the week. 

My parents are so proud of me and where I work, and when they come to shop in the store I often find my mum speaking to my colleagues saying, “Hello my love – that’s my son everyone!”
