Graduate Careers


You’re an ambitious graduate looking for the perfect place to make the most of your talents and build a career. You’ve found it at M&S.

We strive for perfection in everything we do. You can find it in all of our stores and every aspect of our operations. You can see it in our exquisitely executed, expertly edited fashion collections; and taste it in our melt-in-the-mouth food ranges. You can feel it in every fibre of our fabrics and experience it through the warmth of our customer service. Perfection is what inspires us; and what our customers have come to expect. As a bright, talented graduate, we see no reason why you should settle for anything less. Which is why we’ve created perfect careers with you in mind.

We now welcome over 33 million customers through our doors and over 6.1 million people to our website every single week. And our continued growth has seen us develop new channels and expand into new markets. Meaning, for you, that we can offer virtually unlimited opportunities.

So whether you want to pursue a career in retail management or specialise in one of the many Head Office disciplines that make our business tick, the perfect role is waiting for you here at M&S.
