Industrial Placements

Choosing the very best place to gain invaluable experience during your year out of university is really important. After all, you want to be certain that wherever you go, you’ll be creating the very best start to your future career.

Rest assured that Industrial Placements at the John Lewis Partnership have been carefully designed to give you more involvement, more opportunities to show what you’re capable of, and more responsibility. After successfully completing the scheme and finishing university we hope our Placement students will rejoin the business through a graduate scheme or advertised role.

In 2017 we recruited for the following schemes within Waitrose Head Office based in Bracknell:

Agriculture, Business Development, Buying, Commercial Operations, Customer Loyalty Marketing, Marketing Insight, Marketing Store Development, Product Development and Social Media

Why choose an Industrial Placement?

Placements are an invaluable way of getting to know a company. And, of course, for a company to get to know you.

All Placements give you a unique overview of how our businesses are structured and how they operate, not to mention a flavour of the exciting future career you could have with us. Students applying for a placement need to have interest and/or career aspiration in the area they apply for.
