The township of Hampton to the south of Peterborough was developed on the site of former brick fields. The area is abundant in Oxford Clay, and by the 20th Century, the vicinity of Hampton became one of the most important producers of brick in the United Kingdom. They were called Flettons, and they built Britain.

We’d like to be able to say that some of these bricks found their way into our new M&S store, but we can’t confirm that. However, for the 194,000 residents of Peterborough alone (not including the outlying areas of Yaxley and Huntingdon) the M&S store is likely to become the next big foodie destination.

The new 10,000 sq. ft. store is located in Serpentine Green, a covered shopping mall located 4 miles south of Peterborough city centre, just off the A1139. It will include a 52-seat Café, In-Store Bakery and Click & Collect service. Which means we’ll not only need Section Co-ordinators, Sales Floor and Store Operations Customer Assistants, we’ll also require In-store Bakery and Café Customer Assistants. There’s a vacancy for an Admin Assistant too, and to ensure the safety of our customers and colleagues is paramount, we’re also recruiting for a Fire, Health and Safety Officer.

There are over 2,000 free unrestricted parking spaces within the Serpentine Green retail park – great news for those looking to commute by car. And a variety of available shifts means you should be able to fit your job in around your existing commitments.

Here’s what Sami, new store manager, has to say about our new M&S Store:

“Serpentine Green is a fantastic location for our new M&S Simply Food store. It has fantastic transport links and the surrounding community are eagerly awaiting our opening. I am personally excited to be leading the store and a team that will establish itself within a strong existing shopping destination and be able to bring more jobs to the area.”
