Living up to high expectations

At M&S, we put a huge amount of effort into our stores. It’s a chance to challenge ourselves, to become even better and to embrace people in the local community. One of our most imminent openings is our Food Hall in the Orbital Retail Park in Cannock. We’re pleased to introduce you to our Store Manager there – Thomas Mawby. Thomas’ first task will be to bring on amazing and talented people, and introduce them to the values that are echoed through every part of our business.

“To bring together a talented, passionate team to the long-awaited M&S Food Hall in Cannock is a great privilege for me as Store Manager. From talking to people in the local area, there is genuine excitement about this store opening and I feel a real responsibility to ensure our store lives up to people’s expectations. I can’t wait to open the doors and welcome all of our customers in March 2016.”

“The Cannock store will boast the latest Food Hall look and offer some signature features such as the 'Shop Your Way' service, card and horticultural shops, as well as one of our famous bakeries. It has been a long-awaited store opening for Cannock. With a lot of new retail developments in and around the local area, M&S are very happy to be part of this new environment. The new store will be very convenient for people living in town and the surrounding areas who currently have to travel up to 10 miles to reach their nearest M&S. What’s more, the store benefits from some great road links and is within 10 miles of Stafford, Wolverhampton and Walsall.”

There is a range of roles to apply for at the Cannock store; from Customer Assistant roles to working in our bakery, providing mouth-watering, freshly baked breads and pastries to our customers. A variety of contracts are on offer with a mix of early, late and weekend shifts. 

Remembering his career journey at M&S Thomas says, “Throughout my career I have had many exciting opportunities. The one that stands out the most for me was when I was able to go to Hong Kong and work alongside the international team. This experience is not only something I will never forget but it also really opened my eyes to the amazing variety of roles within Marks and Spencer.”
