Business Service Centre (BSC)
Our Business Service Centre (BSC) in Manchester is where our financial experts make sure our accounts remain in great shape. As part of the Finance Group, it’s the job of the BSC to support us on all our transactional activities, such as paying for the products and services that enable us to trade on a day-to-day basis.
The centre is home to a number of different disciplines and prides itself on delivering outstanding results – and last year’s figures reveal the scale of this team’s achievement and importance to the business. Last year, the BSC completed over 900 reconciliations, answered over 85,000 queries and paid over 2.3 million invoices – all while protecting our assets and interests with robust financial controls.
Achieving all of this takes committed, switched-on people; people who can think on their feet, and above and beyond their immediate role. It also means making the most of cutting-edge systems and technologies. So there’ll be plenty of opportunity to build on what you know and develop within your chosen career path.
Who we look for
There’s a variety of roles on offer: some of our more senior roles require a formal finance qualification; for others, we provide all the training and support you’ll need. In whichever role you join us, we’ll be looking for a good attention to detail, strong organisational skills, an analytical mindset and, above all, a genuine passion for the M&S brand.
