John Lewis Partnership

Employer profile

We are a different kind of business. And we aim to give our graduates every opportunity to make a difference to our business. This is why we run a number of graduate schemes that offer a range of options for driven and ambitious people to develop their expertise and have a real say in determining the future of the partnership.

The partnership offers a range of exciting graduate schemes for ambitious individuals seeking early challenges and responsibility. The schemes include retail management for store based managers of the future and head office roles, perfect for those who’d prefer to develop specialist expertise in key business support functions, and a challenging general management programme with insights into a range of business activities for those demonstrating exceptional leadership potential.

Because everyone who works for the John Lewis Partnership co-owns it as a partner, graduates will find the opportunity to shape the way the business is run, sharing its profits, and benefit from a host of exceptional benefits.
