We’re at the forefront of developing new ways to allow our customers to shop. Whether it’s ordering groceries online, browsing the latest fashion accessories on their tablet, or looking up the best travel insurance for their holiday on their phone. But eCommerce is also about how we communicate with our customers. Social media and our YouTube channels are revolutionising the way we talk, and sell, to our customers too.
At the heart of all these developments are our eCommerce teams. They are packed full of visionaries who keep up-to-the-minute with the latest digital developments – always thinking how these can best support the Partnership with their broader objectives and exceed our customers’ expectations.
Take on an eCommerce career with a difference at the John Lewis Partnership. We have a wide range of roles which are crucial to our success as a business, including Administrators, Web Developers, Web Content Producers and Managers, Customer Service Assistants, Trading Managers, Online Merchandising and Digital Marketing professionals, as well as Systems Development teams.
