If you’re looking for the quintessential English holiday resort, you’ll find it in Walton-on-the Naze, nestling on the North Sea coast in Essex.

It’s a small, quiet, beautifully kept town in the Tendring part of the county, close to Frinton-on-Sea. There’s a lovely sandy beach here that attracts holidaymakers in their droves. It has its own pier and, along the coast, there are many fossils to be found and rocks that date back 50 million years.

And, very soon, Walton-on-the-Naze will have its own M&S Simply Foods. What a great place to build a retail career!

Our new store will occupy 9,000 sq. ft. of space on the site of an old caravan park. It will stock the full range of scrumptious M&S food, there will be an In-Store Bakery and we’ll also be offering a Click & Collect service, which means customers will be able to pick up our fantastic fashions as well as food.

We’re the first ‘big’ store to move into the town, which is great news for the people of Walton on-the-Naze and Frinton-on-Sea as well as visitors to the area. Nothing’s better than an M&S snack while taking in the sun on a beach!

But it could also be great news if you’re looking to develop a career in retail. Our new Walton-on-the-Naze store will need a whole host of people including:

Sales Floor Customer Assistants

Store Operations Customer Assistants

In-Store Bakery Assistants

Fire, Health & Safety Officer

Admin Assistant

There is a variety of shifts available, both full and part time, so there’s every chance we’ll have something that suits you. Walton-on-the-Naze has its own railway station and there will also be good bus links to our new store.

Lisa will be the new Store Manager and can’t wait for the doors to open:

“M&S will be a great addition to the town. Local people, holidaymakers, day-trippers – we aim to give everyone a special shopping experience by combining a great selection of products with the renowned M&S service. Come and be part of an exciting team and make it happen!”
