Over 2,000 Christmas Jobs At John Lewis For 2013

John Lewis, the UK chain of department stores, is taking on an extra 2,000 staff into temporary roles for the expected Christmas rush.

Hundreds of new temporary sales assistants jobs will be created at numerous John Lewis stores across the country as the retailer seeks to maintain good customer service during one of the busiest periods of their trading year. Orders at John Lewis can run to over 80 thousand a day in the weeks preceding the Christmas holidays and they need an influx of extra hands to help them deal with the surge in demand.

Further temporary Christmas jobs will also be advertised at John Lewis distribution facilities and call centres in various locations.

Applications for all the temporary jobs can be made through the John Lewis website (link below) and the majority of new recruits will be starting during October or November.

Personnel Director for John Lewis, Laura Whyte, said they were looking for ‘strong and committed’ people to join them early on in the lead up to Christmas.

“We’re not only looking for people who can provide excellent levels of customer service in our shops and call centres, but also for individuals who understand the important role that our distribution centres play in making sure the Christmas shopping experience is as smooth as possible for customers,” said Ms Whyte.
