Waitrose Graduate Leadership Scheme

Here at Waitrose, we mean business.

We're exceptionally proud of who we are. As the supermarket division of the John Lewis Partnership, we've come a long way – with more than 295 branches across the country. However we're not stopping there. When it comes to growth we really mean business and if you join our Waitrose Graduate Leadership Scheme you'll be someone who helps us fulfil our ambitions.

As an inspirational, commercially-minded, strategic-thinking visionary, you've got your sights firmly set on the future. You want to be a leader; which is great, because that's who we're looking for. But don't worry too much at the moment if you're not quite ready to take the reins just yet, as we're interested in the leaders of tomorrow. So as long as you bring us your potential and commitment, we'll do everything in our power to help you achieve great things.

As a Partner at Waitrose, everyone has a ‘say' in the business, which is why our Graduate Leadership Scheme has been designed to focus on the individual – allowing you to take more control of your career. So for those who want diversity of opportunity in a fast-moving, yet supportive environment, we're a whole lot more than just ‘retail'… as you'll soon find out.
