How you can start your career at M&S.

"Autumn is my busiest period. It’s when we open all of our undergraduate and school leaver schemes for applications to join our business the following year." 

"It’s a really exciting time to consider a career in retail, especially at M&S as we are laying the foundations for growth and development with our international expansion plans and a strong focus on technology. Joining M&S now on one of our management programmes means you will have the chance to get involved in shaping the way our business evolves in the future, whilst fast-tracking your career."

"Our School Leaver Programme offers individuals the opportunity to start their career straight from school – it’s a 12-18 month programme that coaches, trains and develops you to become an M&S Commercial Manager. At the end of the programme, you will be responsible for running your own area of one of our stores, overseeing multi-million pound budgets and line managing a team of Section Managers and Customer Advisors."

"Most people underestimate the variety of roles at a retail organisation. Our graduate opportunities, for instance, span many areas of the business. These include everything from Software Engineering and IT Business Analyst roles to Buying & Merchandising, Logistics, Design, Marketing, HR and Product Development."

"Our Retail Programme has the largest number of places available and opportunities nationwide. We also offer many places at our Head Office in Paddington, London. If you have a real motivation for retail, enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and are prepared to hit the ground running, we’d love to hear from you!"
