Department: Corporate Affairs
Founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, Burberry is a global luxury brand with a distinctly British attitude. We are a global business with an extensive network of both owned and franchised stores across EMEIA, Asia Pacific and Americas. We are digital pioneers, and innovative technology underpins every aspect of our business, from product design to distribution and marketing. We believe that modern luxury means being socially and environmentally responsible; this mindset is core to our business and key to our long-term success.
Burberry has consistently stood at the forefront of the fashion industry when it comes to Corporate Responsibility. We established our Responsibility team over 15 years ago and since then have built widely recognised industry leading programme.
A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Responsibility Manager to be based out of our Head office in Westminster, who will build lasting partnerships with internal and external stakeholders across the globe to develop and deliver high profile corporate responsibility programmes.
The team has a wide remit, reaching communities worldwide and the role will feed directly into our global strategy.
This is a chance for a passionate individual to drive our social responsibility programme. If you’ve got a demonstrable track record in this space, have worked in global organisations and have a genuine passion for what we do, we’d love to hear from you.
