When you hear the words luxury retail you might think of the big fashion houses like Chanel and Dior, but there are so many options. You’ll find it surprisingly easy to discover a role that perfectly matches your interests.
The luxury beauty industry is booming - but did you know that before Selfridges, beauty products were kept in a shelf at the back of the store? They were seen as shameful products until Harry Gordon Selfridge put them on display. Now, that seems unthinkable as customers queue for hours to shop in the new Huda Beauty concession in Harrods. If you love all things lashes, mascara and skincare then a role in a luxury beauty brand could be the perfect role for you!
Food and Wine
We are living in an era where food and art are becoming one, and it’s exciting. Chocolate has gone from being a cheap treat to experimental - combined with salt and chilli and unexpected flavours. Patissieres are now baking cakes with gold leaf and macarons with wasabi. For anyone who loves to eat and try cuisines, working for a luxury food brand is a dream. It’s the perfect place to share your knowledge about Italian dining or Chilean wine, matching customers with the perfect products.
Are you super organised, with all the latest inserts for your Filofax? Surround yourself with planners, gold pencils and beautifully designed note cards by working with a luxury stationery brand. This is not an ordinary stationery department role, but an interactive position where you can use your enthusiasm to sell beautiful exclusive Christian Lacroix notebooks and paperweights worth hundreds.
Many of us have smartphones and tablets these days, but not all of us have the knowledge to know all the features and benefits of the latest iPhone or Kindle. If you’re the type of person who is clued up about the latest technology release and why this model is better than its predecessor, you could be the perfect team member for a luxury technology brand. You’ll be selling anything from a Sheikh the enormous flat screen television for his pool house, to diamond encrusted golden iPhones.
