Retail to Head Office Pathways

If you have an interest in working in management or Head Office it is important to be vocal and speak to your manager.  We don’t know you’re interested unless you tell us. 

The path to role in head office doesn’t necessarily mean an employee has to gain a Retail Management role to progress their career.  However, in most cases it does help your long term career path to have management experience.  We can help you achieve your goals by providing experience in the field you are interested in whilst in the retail environment.

Taking It To The Next Level - Working at our Head Office

There are a number of different business functions an employee from Retail can create a head office career with.

  • Sales
  • Education
  • Travel Retail

Retail employees can gain experience whilst working on the retail floor in the above head office functions. In the past we have given retail employees opportunities to take on extra responsibilities when their direct reports have gone on holidays or helped with a project or event.

However, it is also possible to combine your university degree or diploma with retail experience and apply for a head office role in Finance, HR, Marketing, Creative Services, etc.  The HR team look favourably up those who have previously worked within Estee Lauder Companies brands and have experience working for retail and FMCG Companies, coupled with corporate experiences and qualifications.
