As a business we encourage flexible working. We have a number of different ways to work flexibly, so at your interview feel free to talk about what flexibility means to you. There are no guarantees, however, examples of how our Partners already work flexibly include part-time, job share, home working and compressed hours.

Duties & Responsibilities

Our John Lewis Financial Services products delight our customers and help drive additional value for our business. In an ever changing retail environment, identifying new revenue avenues is key to keeping our Partnership successful.

We are looking for a Partner to lead our Financial Services community driving the changes needed to secure this significant opportunity.

As the Director, Financial Services Trading, you will be accountable for delivering the Partnership's Financial Services strategy and owning all the elements of its commercial success. You will inspire and motivate our Partners to delight our approximately 2 million customers to unlock the value needed to keep reinvesting in our products.

Job Requirements

This role requires someone to have excellent leadership and stakeholder management skills. You will interface into our existing financial services providers ensuring relationships are established and developed in order to achieve our ambitions.

The Partnership's ultimate purpose is the happiness of all its members, through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business. Because the Partnership is owned in trust for its members, they share the responsibilities of ownership as well as its rewards - profit, knowledge and power. What other companies provide a share of profits to their workers and access to exclusive Partner Hotels as well as a competitive pension? Becoming a Partner at this level will open up a host of benefits including a personal car and private medical cover.
