I Feel Really Lucky To Be Surrounded By Such A Great Team. I’m Not Only Grateful That They’ve Helped Me Achieve My Goals, But Also That I Can Give Them A Place Where They Can Achieve Theirs.

Department overview:

Digital commerce is critical to the future success of Michael Kors. The brand is committed to delivering a best in class customer experience that underpins global revenues of €0.5bn from digital channels over the next few years.

Central to that growth is the Digital Design team that sits within the Digital Commerce & Consumer Marketing department located in London (UK).

Leveraging and coordinating with our parent organization located in New York (USA), the department is a fast-paced, ‘can-do’, entrepreneurial environment that is rewarding for those accomplished leaders who are team-players, willing to take ownership and be both very hands-on and strategic at the same time.
