Our customers are at the forefront of everything we do; we want to deliver a great festive season for them with inspirational products and the very best customer service courtesy of our brilliant partners.”
In addition to the temporary jobs, a further 1,700 positions will be offered across both Waitrose and John Lewis in a variety of roles over the coming months.
