In search of Star Bakers

When it comes to great British (and continental) baking, our Bakeries at M&S are full of winners.

Over the last three years we have been rolling out brand new in-store bakeries to many of our stores across the UK and some of our international markets. This is part of our plan to add more theatre to our Food Halls and to strengthen M&S' position as a specialist food retailer. 

Our exciting bakery range mixes seasonal flavours that tantalise our customers’ tastebuds. Take our crusty artisan speciality loaves. They’re full of exciting taste combinations, from Cornish Cruncher Cheese with Rosemary and Cranberry & Pecan, to Fig & Hazelnut and many more. Not to mention our deliciously sticky pastries and traditional breads. 

Our bakery assistants put their passion for quality and their desire to make our customers happy into every bake. It’s their job to make everything in our bakeries look delicious. Product knowledge is also key as they need to know the products inside out – Sourdough from Ciabatta and Pain Au Raisin from Panettone.
I see them as one of the most important ingredients in our winning mix. Throughout the day, every day, they’re always ready to share their knowledge and passion to help customers find just the product they’re looking for. 

That’s why we’re looking for people who not only love baking and have some experience of working with bakery products, but who also have the inspiration and flair to promote our delicious baked goods. In return, we offer all the support, training and development you need to be at your best all day long. 

So, if you’ve got what it takes to wear your apron with pride, produce a great bake time and time again, and get our customers raving about your products every single day, check out our hospitality video and register to become one of our bakers.
