Join us in making our new stores a great success!

Creating the ultimate retail experience is what drives us. And with over 900 stores across the UK – both larger format and smaller Food Hall stores; there is ample opportunity for you to help us make it happen and explore what an M&S career could look like for you.

Part of the community

We spoke to Store Managers Stephanie and Paul who are both very excited to be bringing M&S to their communities at Rochdale’s Riverside development and Ripon respectively; particularly the opportunities the stores will present to local job seekers.

“Riverside is a hotly anticipated store opening with many of our local customers eagerly awaiting our launch day,” she says. “The store will feature a cafe and an in-store bakery which is something brand new for our customers. Alongside foods, we are delighted to have a great range of clothing and home alongside the return of Per una.”

By opening a store which not only features a brand-new food layout and coffee shop but also one which is so easily accessible via great public transport links, Stephanie is looking forward to the new Rochdale store becoming a real hub for the community and can’t wait to embed new colleagues into her team.

Join M&S at a really exciting time

With a small Simply Foods as the only M&S store previously located in Ripon, Yorkshire – the opening of a brand-new store is meeting a huge demand from customers and potential colleagues alike.

“Ripon is a fantastic location for our new M&S simply food store. It has fantastic transport links and the surrounding community are eagerly awaiting our opening.”

Store Manager Paul is seeking great talent who can join him in providing a great store experience for our customers. With roles in both Ripon and Rochdale stores including Salesfloor Customer Assistants, Store Operations Customer Assistants, In Store Bakery Assistants, FHSO, and Admin Assistants to name but a few – now is a great time to join the business.

A great future at M&S

Wherever you join us, at whatever level, in whichever role, having the right attitude and personality could take you a long way. With various shift patterns available in our new stores (in line with the store operating hours 04:00-22:00) there could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Search for current opportunities in Rochdale and Ripon today and perhaps you could be a part of our exciting future.
