John Lewis offers employees on secondment

The John Lewis Partnership's Golden Jubilee Trust is inviting charities of all sizes to apply to take advantage of the retailer's employees on secondment. Each year about 50 employees are transferred to a charity for up to six months.

John Lewis Partnership spokeswoman Kate Beames said the programme is very popular with employees. “We want to keep the range of charities involved very broad because our employees have different interests,” she added.

Employees from all levels can take part, from shop workers to directors. Beame said many come to the programme with charities in mind and others just want to get involved any way they can. “I know a lot of our employees continue to work for their charities after their secondment is over,” she said.

The Golden Jubilee Trust won a Business In The Community Big Tick Award on 4 June, and last year it donated 19,580 hours to charity.
