Since 1929 the purpose of our business has been the happiness of those who work in it. Some things never change.

The John Lewis Partnership is unique. It’s like no other place you have worked before, or will ever work again. Just one of the reasons for this is that we put the happiness of our people – our Partners – at the heart of everything we do. Join us and we’ll ensure your job is not only fulfilling and rewarding but suited to the way you work best as an individual.

We’re also different because our Partners are active co-owners in the business, which means they share in the profits and have a real say in determining its future. What’s more, we take genuine pride in treating each other with respect and honesty – an ethos that is reflected in the outstanding level of service we deliver to our customers, each and every day.

This all adds up to making the Partnership and each of its household brands – John Lewis, Waitrose and John Lewis Insurance – extraordinary places to work. Join us and you’ll find that, whatever you want to do and wherever you want to go, the John Lewis Partnership can take you there.

A message from Tracey Killen
Director of Personnel

"Our teams are as diverse as the products we sell and in order to build a successful business we are looking to recruit individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. This means whether you are in or leaving education, returning to work or looking for a change in direction, we could have the opportunity you are looking for.

This website will give you all the information you will need to discover what being an employee or 'Partner' is all about, the commitments we will give to you and the responsibilities you will take, if you are successful in joining us, in order to build on our success as a co-owned business. Take time to visit our current vacancies to see if we can offer what you are looking for. "
