As we open for the 2018 early careers intake, we are very proud to take a glimpse at some of the wonderful first impressions we left during our class of 2017’s first days. And we hope the new faces this year will be the ones shaping the future of our business and welcoming graduates to the company many years from now.

When Lara posted “Last day of my first wonderful week with M&S!!!” followed by a few funny emojis, it warmed our hearts.

That’s because, at M&S, we strive to be an inspiring, supportive and amazing place to be for all our people, whatever stage they are in their lives. However it is of no small importance to us that we make sure our annual intake feel especially welcome and at home with us. It can be incredibly daunting stepping into what for many is probably their first big job. At M&S we’ve made it our habit to listen carefully, collect feedback and to always do better, year after year.

“The Brent Cross store is an amazing place! Everyone here is very friendly and helpful, and they have been extremely caring and supportive in helping me understand how the business works. So far, I could not love this placement more; it is exactly what I wanted and more. All I can say is thank you so much for this opportunity and I can't wait to see where it will take me!” – Kate.

“I just finished my first week on the School Leaver Management Apprenticeship with M&S! I can’t believe that I’m 19 years old, just finished my A levels last June and I’m already part of something I enjoy so much” surmised Fiona.

We are all looking forward to welcoming 2018’s intake and it is our hope that their first impressions of M&S will be just as positive. Applications open soon: mandsearlycareers.com, register now for job alerts and you’ll be notified as soon as the roles become available.
