It’s you we’re interested in

We positively celebrate diversity & inclusion in the John Lewis Partnership. Truly embracing individuals contributions, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexuality, social background, religion or belief. Having a diverse and inclusive business is vital for our future success and that’s why it is at the heart of our ultimate purpose; the happiness of all our Partners. 

To ensure this all happens, we’ve set up seven networks to represent the diversity and inclusion of our Partners. Their aim is to provide support among their members and give everyone the opportunity to connect with people who are similar or different to them. Also –  and just as importantly – the Partnership networks influence the business’ overall Diversity and Inclusion strategy.

Find out a little more about each of our networks:

Ability

Our Ability network has a mission to foster an understanding and supportive environment in which all Partners with or without a mental, physical or learning challenges are enabled to flourish and celebrate being themselves. They’re making conversations about different abilities easier, helping Partners, managers and the wider business to have open and honest conversations about ability as part of everyday life.

If you have a disability, learning difficulty, medical condition or any other individual needs (which you feel will support you in making an application) we’ll be happy to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to perform at your best.

UNITY
UNITY is the Partnerships’ Network for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) Partners. It’s vision is to support the Partnership in recognising, valuing and unlocking the potential of BAME Partners.
Faith, Belief and Religion
The Faith, Belief & Religion Network is aimed at educating, celebrating and challenging the way of thinking when it comes to this aspect of diversity in the workplace.
Gender Equality Network (GEN)
GEN (Gender Equality Network) focuses on gender equality. It empowers Partners to overcome barriers and be more involved in Gender topics outside of their day job
LinkAGE
LinkAge is our intergenerational or age network aiming to build awareness of the benefits and challenges of an intergenerational workforce.
Pride in the Partnership (PiP)
Pride in the Partnership was the first network to develop in the Partnership and supports the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. They are focused on enriching the happiness of Partners through increased visibility and support. They regularly attend and celebrate Pride events across the UK.
Working Parents
The Working Parents’ Network (WPN) has been set up to support individual working parents at every stage of the parenting journey and to influence and inspire the way the Partnership supports working parents.

Committed To Creating A Culture of Inclusion

When applying for a role in the Partnership you can expect the same level of commitment towards diversity and inclusion as you’ll experience when you’ve started with us. We treat all our applicants fairly and with respect, irrespective of their background, disability or any other protected characteristic.
