Department store chain John Lewis has announced that it is looking to recruit more than 3,000 temporary staff to fill roles across the retail and distribution arms of the business in the run-up to the busy Christmas trading period.

Positions will be available in its 44 branches across the UK, working across a number of departments including the John Lewis Christmas Shop, electrical and home technology, gift food and catering.

In addition to branch roles, the retailer will also be seeking temporary staff for positions across its distribution network to support both shops and sales.

Katharina Butler-Tjepkema, resourcing manager at John Lewis, said: “Christmas is a really exciting time to be a Partner at John Lewis, and we are looking for enthusiastic people who understand the importance of delivering exceptional customer service.

“Our distribution network is key to our omnichannel business, and we also are also on the look-out for distribution Partners to ensure that customers using our online and click and collect facilities receive the same levels of service as those who visit our shops.”

John Lewis will start advertising vacancies in batches from this month on its jobs website.
