Unleashing your potential

In the Partnership, it’s in our interest that everyone fulfils their potential. If you’re doing well, so does the business. And if the business is doing well, you all get a share of our profits. It’s why our Partners take particular pride in what they do and how they do it.This is why our Partners are as committed to their training and development as we are. It’s why they drive their own careers and make it their business to improve themselves.

We see the Partnership as a climbing frame of experiences and opportunities where we can all learn new skills and capabilities. We think this helps our Partners have meaningful and varied working lives and wherever they work, to be the best they can be. There is plenty of support available if you are thinking about development; whether that is developing within your role, developing at the same level, or progressing to the next level.

Our Partners are individuals, so we recognise that training and development – as well as ‘improvement’ – means different things to different people. For some, it means being great at their job – whether they’re a Selling Assistant, a Customer Delivery Driver or a DevOps Manager. For others, it’s about ‘what’s next?’ They want to progress from an Assistant Buyer to Buyer, or to move from a Selling Assistant in John Lewis to a Team Manager in Waitrose. Either way, we have great training programmes and development pathways to support them to achieve their goals, and Partners are actively encouraged to try new things and to be flexible about which opportunities are right for them.

Every Partner is empowered to develop their career and the Partnership can truly be a world of opportunity. Being mindful and curious enables you to be more flexible to learn new things at work and at home.
