Apprentices

Here at John Lewis, we place our Partners - in other words, our employees – at the heart of all we do. We pride ourselves on providing rewarding, worthwhile careers where people can learn and develop, as part of a dedicated team. So it makes sense to create an Apprenticeship programme where school leavers could do the same.

Through the John Lewis Apprenticeship programmes, you'll have the chance to take the first step towards a wide range of exciting opportunities. Our business is extensive – so when it comes to choosing the direction of your future career, you won't be short of options.

Wherever you see yourself heading, you'll be sure we'll prepare you well. The programme places clear responsibilities on apprentices, encouraging them to learn and to play an active part in our business. Show us you're ready and we'll not only support you every step of the way – we'll also reward you with a share of our success. After all, you'll be a co-owner in the business, sharing the profits and helping to determine its future. Not bad for someone who's just left school or college?
