A drive to recruit sales assistants and specialist advisers to work at a new John Lewis store in Ashford begins today with 125 positions to be filled.

The retailer's hunt for "partners" to fill a variety of roles comes on the morning that the newest ONS unemployment figures are due to be announced.

The shop, located close to junction 9 of the M20, is John Lewis’s tenth "at home" store, set to open before the end of 2013.

Rebekah Hawley, recruitment coordinator, said: “We are looking for hardworking people who can use their own initiative and are eager to work within a team.

"There are a broad range of roles available and we offer both full and part-time contacts.”

Staff become a part of the company's partnership structure, meaning they are co-owners of the business and receive benefits including an annual bonus, access to holiday and leisure facilities, education and career development support.
