Summer is officially behind us and most of us have now finished splashing out on our holidays.

Now the warm weather is dwindling, it's fair to say some of us are beginning to think about saving for, dare I say it, Christmas 2017.

For those forward-thinkers who are hoping to find a job for the festive period, there are some jobs on offer that might appeal.

John Lewis are looking for 460 temporary staff to join their Oxford Street team ahead of the "busiest shopping period of the year".

New partners are being recruited to help customers prepare for the festive season, with positions available across departments including the John Lewis Christmas Shop, electrical and home technology and gifts and stock management roles.

The department store giant is also recruiting across its distribution networks, for warehouse and driving roles.
