John Lewis creates 50 IT jobs in 2012

Recruitment drive to grow 280-strong IT team and boost support multi-channel services

UK retailer John Lewis has announced plans to hire more than 50 IT specialists in 2012 in a bid to support increased investment in multi-channel customer service offerings.

The roles will include project managers, business analysts, systems analysts and developers, who will all work as part of John Lewis' 280-strong IT team.

"Technology has been identified as one of the most important drivers of business growth," said Owen Roberts, John Lewis' recruitment manager.

"We are now looking for talented IT professionals to join our team and help us take multi-channel retail to the next level, cementing our reputation as an industry leader."

The new recruits are also being taken on board to support a three-fold investment in IT that has occurred in recent years, according to a John Lewis spokesperson.

Those interested in applying can search and apply for opportunities through John Lewis' career website.

In January, the company also revealed that an overhaul of its retail website, which was optimised for mobile use, led to a 42 percent rise in online sales over the 2011 Christmas period, contributing to total revenues of £133 million.
