A sales assistant for John Lewis in Nottingham is urging people in the city to apply for temporary sales jobs at the store in the run up to Christmas.
Lucy Taylor joined as a temp in Christmas 2012 and is now a full-time worker. She says you never know where a temporary job will lead.
“Joining as a Christmas temp meant I learnt so much in such a small space of time within a busy and fast-paced working environment. When a permanent position became available, I jumped at the chance.”_
The firm are also looking for temporary workers in Tamworth. Positions will be advertised here.
