At Selfridges, our world-class visual installations are designed to stand out and reflect exactly who we are. To help bring our displays to life, we need an outstanding production team behind us; which is where you come in.

KNOW THE ROLE

Working closely with the production manager, assistant production manager and creative teams, you’ll ensure our 3D installation projects are interpreted, briefed and delivered effectively, on time and within budget. Ensuring good lines of communication with contractors, suppliers, and the Windows team, you’ll be best placed to conduct briefings, manage budgets and negotiate costs. With Selfridges’ high standards always at the forefront of your mind, you’ll run to tight schedules and oversee every step of the installation process - all while applying and keeping abreast of the latest innovations.

KNOW WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

You are a solution-focussed, unconventional, creative thinker with strong planning skills and a great eye for detail. You also have a sound knowledge of property sourcing, building and display construction. Your solid briefing and negotiating ability means that you’ll know how to get the best from the teams around you – both internal and external – and your confidence and experience means that you’ll remain cool and calm under pressure.

KNOW SELFRIDGES

Harry Gordon Selfridge first arrived in London from Chicago in 1906 with his heart set on opening his dream store. With his revolutionary understanding of publicity and the theatre of retail, Selfridges Oxford Street opened its doors for the first time in 1909.

The founder’s spirit of innovation and creativity lives on through its owners today. Since 2003, W. Galen Weston and his family have owned and operated the business. With the store being named ‘Best Department Store in the World’ on three consecutive occasions in a row (2010, 2012 & 2014) and most recently being awarded the title of ‘World’s Best Sustainability Campaign by a Department Store’ at the Global Department Store Summit 2016, Selfridges today is more than just the sum of its products. It's a shopping experience that promises to surprise, amaze and amuse and to this day, as Harry Gordon Selfridge said, ‘Everyone is welcome’.

With our Vision, to be the destination for the most extraordinary customer experience, innovative and iconic ways to make this a reality are never too far away. An exciting example of this is our investment programme which is underway in our Oxford Street store and has already seen us open the revolutionary Body Studio and the first phase of our new Designer Studio, providing customers with cutting-edge and progressive designer fashion in a creative and dynamic environment. In November 2016 we opened phase one of our new Accessories Hall – the Northern Hall. Once completed, the 60,000 sq. ft. space will be our biggest destination. It will also include a new concept space, personalisation bar and eyewear destination. 2017 has more exciting plans to unveil.

Team members across our business strive to keep our Vision a reality through the values we live day to day and the stories we make, tell and share.

KNOW WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

Extraordinary experiences are not only for customers, but team members too. We offer all team members the chance to be a part of something unique where they can enjoy careers that provide inspiring experiences, exciting challenges and great benefits.

They also know that Selfridges is committed to developing its talent, which allows for a wide scope of amazing opportunities as the business continues to grow. Whether you are a Values Ambassador, Green Warrior, a member of the Work it Lab or you get your fix for fashion by taking part in our internal shows, there are many ways to show and develop your talent.

Living our Values is essential to the way we work day to day, encouraging greater social responsibility amongst our team members. From our Project Ocean campaign to Bright Young Things, we are focused on a long term approach to sustainability by buying better and inspiring change.

This role’s key benefits includes potential for performance related bonus, subsidised gym membership offer, season ticket loan, cycle to work scheme, pension contribution and not to mention a generous staff discount!
