750 jobs on offer at Westfield Stratford City’s flagship John Lewis store
High street giant John Lewis has launched a major drive to find 750 new staff for its flagship Westfield store.
The firm, along with Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, is one of three anchor tenants at the Stratford City development.
Its 240,000 sq ft store will be the largest in the new centre — and the first new London department store that John Lewis has opened for 20 years.
Noel Saunders, the Stratford branch’s managing director, said: “New jobs are what everyone is calling for in these challenging times and I am thrilled to launch this major recruitment campaign for our new Stratford shop.
“I started as a cashier in a John Lewis dining room more than 30 years ago and have since then developed a rewarding long-term career with the partnership.
