New for this year is the Waitrose Leadership Graduate Scheme.

John Lewis and Waitrose have moved up to number ten in The Times Top 100 this year, winning awards as Graduate Employer of Choice in both the Retailing and Sales categories. They have also moved from 70 to 30 in The Guardian UK 300 and won best Graduate Recruiter in the Retail category at the Target Jobs Awards.

Candidates are only able to apply for one of our schemes so it is important you research the areas they are interested in and apply to the one most suited to their passion, skills and experience. There’s a range of video profiles on their website showing graduates and students from all of the schemes and a graduate blog where candidates can interact with our current intake.
