Why work for us?

Joining Peter Gotthard means so much more than working for one of the largest and oldest established Hairdresser & Barbers in Harrogate. We’ve built our business on a passion for excellence, a flexible approach in all that we do and by collaborating with one another to put customers first. There’s a sense of camaraderie here; a feeling of belonging – probably because we go out of our way to listen to and involve all of our people. And because we want to be the best, we want you to be your best. The size and scope of our business means that the opportunities on offer are as diverse as the people that work here. If you’re ready to play your part, you’ll be richly rewarded too. From competitive salaries, commissions schemes and flexible working options there really is something for everyone.

Company overview

When Peter Harman and Gotthard Passengar  joined forces to create Peter Gotthard in 1964, not even they could have foreseen the  success story that was to unfold. From its humble beginnings on Parliament Street, Peter Gotthard is now Harrogate premier hair salon for ladies and gents:

  • Inspiration – generating new styles that excite our customers, enthuse our people and enhance our business.
  • Innovation – focusing on continuous improvement, with new product ranges like Davines Colours and Living Proof salon products.
  • Integrity – doing the right thing, not the easy thing; building trust and reinforcing our reputation.
  • In Touch – understanding what’s important to our customers, the communities in which we work and our colleagues.
