Content Production Jobs

We are looking for individuals who share our passion and creativity, and who would want to go the extra mile on everything they deliver. There’s an increase in demand for in-house photography and video, both in terms of quantity and quality, so it’s really important that we have the best talent in the business. This requires a broad range of specialisms to work together – ranging from problem solvers and outstanding communicators through to set builders and photographers. Although our skill sets vary considerably, there are some key attributes that every Content Production Partner should have:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Positive attitude
  • Takes ownership for their own development
  • Passion

These localised attributes are vital to the success of Content Production, but it’s important to remember that successful candidates will be joining an employee-owned business. With this in mind, we look for people who also embody the five Partnership Values: ‘Do right’, ‘All or nothing’, ‘Give more than you take’, ‘Be yourself. Always’ and ‘We not me’.

Listed below are a few of the job descriptions for roles currently within The John Lewis & Partners Content Production Hub; Studio Assistant; Photographer; Senior Photographer; Image Coordinator; Retoucher; Senior Retoucher; Senior Shoot Producer; Stylist and Hair and Makeup Fashion Assistant.

“I get to experiment all the time with paint techniques and materials which is something I adore.”
“Everyone here at the Content Production Hub are creative, fun and friendly. We all bounce off one another’s creativity and are encouraged to be ourselves and to develop our creative boundaries.”

Where are we based?

The department is primarily based in the John Lewis & Partners Content Production Hub in north west London, but several roles require an element of travel to different sites.
We also shoot across various locations and some partners are required to travel to agencies, our sample warehouse in Milton Keynes or spend some of their working life at John Lewis & Partners Head Office in Victoria.

Who are our Key Stakeholders?

We produce content for – and with – a wide variety of teams. Many sit within the Partnership itself – such as John Lewis & Partners teams in Buying, Marketing and Online. We also work with a number of external stakeholders like creative agencies and brands. We are committed to delivering excellent customer service in ensuring the brief we receive is successfully fulfilled. The nature of our work means there is often a tension to be managed between meeting creative and commercial objectives – something that makes the roles challenging and exciting.
