John Lewis launches 2013 graduate training scheme
The John Lewis department store chain has launched its 2013 graduate training scheme and is inviting applications for this year's intake.
The retailer said the programme is designed to give graduates the skills required to progress the most senior roles within the business with the opportunity to work in a variety of positions and to take on significant responsibility early on.
Carole Donaldson, manager, resourcing, John Lewis said: "Over the years we have seen many John Lewis graduates quickly move up to senior management roles within the company, which is testament to the quality of our training, roles and reward schemes.
"There are no set degrees or experience we look for when recruiting for graduate roles in management, buying and merchandising which means we take on a variety of different people with diverse backgrounds, which strengthens us as an organisation in the long term."
John Lewis said successful trainees in the areas of retail management, buying, merchandising and corporate finance could expect to be leading teams or given management responsibility after three to five years.
