Customer Experience Assistant
at Harry's in London
(₤25000 per year)
UK CX Assistant full-time – 5 days a week including Saturday and Sunday
Harry’s is a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.
Since launching in early 2013, we have been blown away by the customer response to our brand. Today, we have over 3 million customers and are growing fast. We’re now looking to bring amazing people, like you, together to redefine the way people interact with brands online and in stores across the country.
About the Team
At Harry’s, the customer is at the heart of everything that we do. The Customer Experience Team serves as the bridge between Harry’s and the amazing people who use our products. We’re the voice of Harry’s to our customers and advocates for our customers to the rest of the Harry’s team. From new products to marketing initiatives to our website, everything we do is directly influenced by our customers. As a Customer Experience Assistant you’ll drive that change, and have a lot of fun doing it!
