John Lewis is top employer as people 'love to work where they shop'

Retailers and technology firms dominate a list of the companies people most want to work for, a study shows.

The John Lewis Partnership, including Waitrose, was the most sought-after employer for the second year in a row in a list compiled by networking service Linkedin.

Online fashion firm Asos was second, followed by Topshop owners the Arcadia Group, Harrods, TV and broadband firm Liberty Global, Sainsbury's, Virgin, Google, Facebook and the BBC.

Linkedin said its research among millions of its members showed people still loved to work where they shopped.

Kate Corcoran, of the John Lewis Partnership, said: "Attracting top talent is incredibly important as our business is owned by our partners and LinkedIn plays a key role in this."

Sarah Andrews, retail director at Harrods, said: "It is fantastic to see the retail industry, which offers such a variety of careers and opportunities, to continue to lead the way for prospective UK employees.

"Part of what makes Harrods such a special business is the diversity of roles we are able to offer, all under one roof."
