We all want the young people we know to get on in life. So we all know how important it is to make the right choice of career. But that's often easier said than done - these days, there is a multitude of options out there.
What's right for one child might be totally wrong for another of the same age. So it's vital that young people are treated as individuals. What level of education have they reached? What's their capacity for future learning? What are they good at? What are they interested in? Where do they see themselves going?
And when these questions arise, you, and they need information - lots of information - to pinpoint the best career option.
M&S might be that option, it might not. But we thought it would be useful to give you an overview of what we can offer young people.
M&S has long been one of the most trusted brands on the high street. Today, though, there’s far more to us than a network of stores: we’re an international retailer with multi-shopping channels including our increasingly popular M&S.com.
As our business has grown, so too have the opportunities for young people. Below, you can read about our different career paths. But from school leavers to uni students and graduates, we make sure everyone is helped, inspired and encouraged on their M&S journey.
We know that starting out in a new job with a new company and getting to know new people can be daunting. Young people want to do well, to show what they can do, which is great. But they also need support. We believe we’ve got the balance right by giving young people responsibility while providing the training, coaching, advice and guidance – not to mention the support of line managers, mentor and buddies – so that they continue to learn and grow.
