John Lewis and Waitrose are set to launch a bumper hiring spree, with 7000 temporary Christmas jobs on offer.
John Lewis and Waitrose is set to recruit 7000 people in temporary roles this Christmas, as it prepares for high customer demand for goods.
At Waitrose the jobs will be across approximately 331 stores, with roles on offer including supermarket assistants and night shift workers while delivery drivers will also be sought.
More people will also be needed to work in John Lewis’ 34 shops and on top of that the partnership, chaired by Sharon White, will also be recruiting 550 permanent full-time driver and warehouse roles across its distribution centres.
The news comes as the retail sector continues to struggle with a shortage of HGV drivers, leading to severe supply chain issues across the UK.
