There’s a lot of love for M&S products and much of the credit has to go to our buying teams. They source the most innovatively, sustainably and affordably designed products on the planet. So, if you can identify exceptional quality and value, then this is the perfect internship for you.
Step into the biggest marketplace you can imagine and help our buyers discover the next big thing. Ideally, you’ll be studying a fashion-related degree, but we’ll consider other courses if you have demonstrable knowledge or flair for spotting the latest trends. You’ll also need to be confident, organised and comfortable working under pressure.
If you’re honestly committed to a career in the hugely competitive world of fashion, this is an essential first step. The sky is the limit and we’re happy to help you go further in your journey, whether that leads to a fashion-buying graduate programme or much more.

Learning and Development
We've plenty of learning opportunities both in store and at our Support Office, which vary according to your scheme. Whether you’re managing people in store, or a valued member of a Support Office team, you’ll be learning while you earn, shouldering real responsibilities and helping to tackle the ever-changing issues of the day. You will be given a specific area of responsibility or a project to manage yourself fairly early on - say yes, it's a great chance to shine.
While we‘ll provide the training tools and opportunities, it’s up to you to take advantage of them. You’ll be expected to use your initiative to identify learning needs specific to you – and have the motivation to meet these needs.
Theory's all well and good, but few plans survive contact with the customer. If you’re based in Support Office, you'll get hands-on, in-store experience through our store attachment programme. Depending on your graduate programme the attachment could be anything from one week to three months.
Corporate Learning Programme
Our cutting-edge workshops will hone your business abilities, ranging from skills foundation and competency training to full-on project management.
We're investing heavily in smarter technology to achieve our vision of becoming the world's most successful multi-channel retailer. So we'll invest plenty of time with you to ensure you receive all the right technical training.
We will support you throughout your career at M&S and, with role-specific training, help you reach your goals.
Unlike many companies, M&S performance management isn't just a case of us saying jump higher. We ensure your achievements are recognised, your feedback is heard and, of course, that your career is progressing. After all, M&S only performs well when we all do.
Depending on the area of the business you join, you could have the opportunity to work towards professional qualifications to enhance your career progression with M&S.
