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 is making a major investment in expanding our data and analytics capability. Over the last few years, we've created a global omni-channel single-customer view, built an outstanding analytics platform and developed a small but highly effective digital analytics and data science team. We've built a great capability in the digital part of our business and we're now ready to build on these foundations to make a quantum leap forward in the sophistication and breadth of data-inspired decision-making across the whole of Burberry. The fashion industry hasn't historically been at the forefront of data and analytics innovation but, at Burberry, we aim to change this...

You'll be joining a rapidly growing team with a hugely ambitious, well-funded and exciting roadmap in a role with great scope to shape our data strategy. You'll join us at the start of the next stage on our journey, so you'll have the opportunity to influence our plans as well as deliver them. You'll be implementing and using the most modern tools in the market with limited/no legacy technology and tools holding you back. You'll have a rare opportunity to apply analytics and data science in a creatively-driven business - combining art and science to create beautiful things. You'll be joining a team that is already using advanced techniques like deep learning, machine vision and AI to drive real value for our business. You'll be working for an organisation that is optimistic, positive, tolerant and respectful but also audacious, ambitious and driven. You will be working as part of an amazing Data Technology function that is a true partner in delivering our strategy. You'll be part of a team that is passionate about, and invests heavily in, training and development. And finally, you'll be working on a global scale but in a company small enough that everyone can have their voice heard and make a difference.

Does that sound exciting? If so, we're recruiting a large number of roles and this is one of them ...
