This is one of the most useful benefits working for John Lewis - culture is very flexible and encourages a healthy work/life balance
Most head office roles allow flexible working - however buying and merch is trickier
Flexible working is more for the company then you. Its more to make you available when they need you then for you to come in when you want. But really what do you expect in retail. You can use this to your advantage, and its nice that its an option.
great good and worth of it
I worked part time and was able to swap certain shifts which did not suit me with other partners
Can swap days/get holiday quite easy depending on the time of year.
Really great flexibility. Very helpful for working parents and those with various physical, mental, or learning challenges
This works in two ways, you have to be flexible for the business as they are to you. If you have other commitments or a family, John Lewis tend to work around you and curate a rota that works for you, but this can also mean they may require you on days you are not usually to work and request you to change.
You can Time bank your shifts, but it can be difficult to claim back the time
Head office work flexibly if agreed.
