Graduate schemes overview

Keeping our success story moving forward. In all kinds of new ways.

Our graduate schemes are designed to nurture our future leaders. If you’re up to the challenge, the opportunities are enormous. Many of our past graduates have gone on to make a big impact across the business – on Divisional Boards, our Senior Leadership Team and Branch Steering Groups. In fact, two of the Partnership’s current Board of Directors joined the business through our Graduate scheme.

All schemes include an element of core skills development, the purpose of which is to give all graduates experience across all areas of the Partnership, exposure to a variety of senior business leaders, opportunities to work with different individuals and the chance to develop a strong graduate community.

Beyond that, each scheme provides more specific experience, specialist or generalist, as well as technical training and support for any relevant professional qualifications.

A more comprehensive explanation of the Partnership’s graduate Core Development Programme, and how this will help you gain the skills required to be a success at the Partnership is available at our Core Development Programme page.

We are currently reviewing our John Lewis Partnership Graduate schemes and therefore will not be recruiting for the 2018 intake. Please check back in Summer 2018 for further information on our 2018/19 schemes and also sign up for job alerts and we will alert you via email as soon as a vacancy goes live. Additionally, we welcome applications from Graduates for the wide variety of roles on offer across our business. Please search and apply here.
