Finance

As we all co-own the business, our Finance team really makes sure it looks after the pennies. But it’s not just the pennies they look after. They manage and report on every aspect of our business, safeguarding our assets and operating appropriate financial controls. And as honesty and integrity are important to us, we’re strict about paying our suppliers and Partners on time. We also make sure we have the resources needed to fund our pension scheme – it’s not just a policy, but a principle.

Why Finance at the John Lewis Partnership?

Here at the John Lewis Partnership, we’re transforming to create a Finance function that is truly world-class.

This is another step in our evolution, designed to ensure we’re creating great roles and careers for our Partners, whilst at the same time providing the business with the insight, challenge and control in order to deliver the Partnership’s Strategy. Our new organisation design allows us to be more agile and flexible, so we can continue to respond as our industry, and our world, changes.

As part of our transformation, we’re excited to bring together our previous divisional teams to create a single, unified Finance function to support both our brands – John Lewis and Waitrose.

Tell me more about the Finance function

It’s a fantastic time to join the Partnership. We have two very strong brands, John Lewis and Waitrose, and as the retail world is changing around us, we’re continually evolving our strategy and our proposition, to lead the way in meeting the needs of our customers and to stay ahead of our competitors.

The Finance function has a key role to play in supporting the business through the provision of insight, challenge and control, supporting business leaders to make more insightful decisions. Our Finance Partners will work in partnership with our stakeholders to drive performance based on the strategic challenge, advice and insight we can offer them.

What will I be doing?

Our John Lewis Partnership Finance team has an opportunity for every finance professional. Our function consists of centralised centres of excellence, each responsible for providing specialist finance-wide expertise to the business, as well as supporting smaller divisional teams of business partners within Waitrose and John Lewis.

Our teams include the Centre for Accounting, the Centre of Planning, Reporting and Analysis, and Internal Controls and Finance Projects, as well as teams focussed on Tax, Insurance and Treasury.

What skills and experience do I need?

Each role is different, and so as such when applying for roles do check out the essential and desirable skills required. We’re looking for candidates to join our evolving Finance function to help us support the business by providing insight, knowledge and control.
