We’re constantly searching for fresh new ideas to meet our customers’ needs. One of the key places we look is our graduates.

Applications for the 2017 John Lewis Technology Graduate Scheme are open.
Applications for the John Lewis Graduate Leadership Scheme and Industrial Placement Schemes are now closed. 

We believe that the John Lewis Partnership continues to grow because we are committed to introducing fresh ideas while simultaneously upholding our longstanding principles of quality, service and value.

Over the years, we’ve evolved a distinct and successful brand of retailing that customers recognise and trust. Our John Lewis shops (department stores and at home stores) have been providing customers with the very best products and service for over 150 years. Now our website is doing the same in today’s digital age. Our Waitrose branches supply the finest fresh food and quality goods both in-store and online. Its combination of convenience and expertise have made it one of the nation’s favourite supermarkets.

Both businesses rely on the dedication and commercial acumen of our Partners to succeed and progress. We need people who are passionate about retail and will embrace every opportunity on offer, whether that’s in our John Lewis and Waitrose shops or in Head Office roles.

Alongside this, we’ve grown to become an expert in the field of graduate recruitment; at training, developing and nurturing our graduates into some of the most successful professionals and leaders in the retail industry.

For 2017 we have two graduate programmes; a Leadership Scheme and a Technology Scheme. We also run a year long Industrial Placement Scheme which, for 2017, will be based within Waitrose Head Office.

To apply for any of our schemes please visit Search Jobs and select ‘Graduate/Placements’ under job types. Please note that we reserve the right to close the vacancies early should we attract high demand – all vacancies currently available will be advertised on JLPJobs.com
