St David’s Day at M&S

David is an M&S veteran, having worked in many of our stores over the last 20 years, and in a variety of different roles. 

“I’ve grown up with Marks & Spencer as many of my family members have worked for the company over the years. So I’ve always felt the need to be part of such a formidable company. Marks & Spencer is, and always will be in my view, an iconic British brand.”

David’s progress through the company was supported not only by our learning and development programme, but by the mentorship of other managers over the years.

“I’ve been very lucky over the years to have been inspired with valuable advice and regular feedback on my progress. It helped me to think differently about my leadership style.”

One of the best things about working at M&S is the buzz that happens around key dates in the calendar, be it Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s. And in stores across the region, everyone’s looking forward to promoting the very best of Wales this St David’s Day. It’s just another way for the team to make every moment special for customers, and to showcase some fantastic regional products.

“We proudly wear a daffodil, and many of our male colleagues will wear a leek. Days like this are important to our heritage.”

But what does David have to say to those thinking of joining us?

“If you’re passionate about working for such an iconic British brand, and thrive on leading a team within retail, M&S has all the tools to support you.”

So get your daffodils on and sample some of our fantastic Welsh produce. And if you’re also called David, try asking for a free pint in the pub later.
