Marks & Spencer is one of the UK’s leading retailers, and attracts around 21 million people to its stores each and every week. Selling stylish clothing, home ware, and highly regarded food lines, the brand has become a British institution since it was first founded in 1884.
The retailer employs over 78,000 people in stores and in its head office functions in London, and has an expanding international business. With core values of quality, value, service, innovation, and trust, it’s built a reputation for excellence.
Graduate schemes are available in retail management, and within head office in functions including Marketing, Product Design, Human Resources, Food Technology, and Merchandising. All are underpinned by a high quality learning and development programme, line manager support, and the opportunity to quickly progress and gain more responsibility. On the retail management programme, graduates can expect to take on a Commercial Manager role within 12 months.
The business looks for gradates with high standards, a strong work ethic, and a commitment to doing the right thing for both customers and colleagues. Successful candidates are rewarded with a starting salary of around £23,500, 4 weeks of paid holiday, a generous store discount, and more.
Every second in the UK 2 percy pigs are eaten.
