John Lewis is UK’s top employer as people ‘love to work where they shop’

The John Lewis Partnership came out as the top employer for the second year in a row in a list compiled by LinkedIn

The study by LinkedIn revealed that The John Lewis Partnership nabbed the number one spot, followed by online fashion firm Asos in second, then Topshop owners the Arcadia Group, Harrods, TV and broadband firm Liberty Global, Sainsbury’s, Virgin, Google, Facebook and the BBC.

The research surveyed millions of LinkedIn members and proved that people still loved to work where they shopped.

Kate Corcoran, of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “Attracting top talent is incredibly important as our business is owned by our partners and LinkedIn plays a key role in this.”

Sarah Andrews, retail director at Harrods, said: “It is fantastic to see the retail industry, which offers such a variety of careers and opportunities, to continue to lead the way for prospective UK employees.

“Part of what makes Harrods such a special business is the diversity of roles we are able to offer, all under one roof.”
