Bio

Tell us which areas you look after:
I look after all the own-bought non-managerial retail roles for Sports, Toys, Technology, Furniture, Homewares, Food, Beauty, Fine Watches and Luxury Jewellery.

Tell us a little bit about your background:
My passion for retail began when I learned basic customer service skills in my mum's childrenswear boutique back in Italy. After my degree in Advertising in Milan I moved to London in 2011 to join the Harrods Christmas department. I loved the shop floor, and worked in a number of Womenswear departments before joining the Resourcing team in 2015.

Why would you recommend Harrods?
Working at Harrods means always striving for excellence, surrounded by colleagues who share the same values of hard work and constant improvement. It means access to brilliant learning and secondment opportunities. There’s nowhere else like it!
