Take the retail challenge

Forget where you see yourself in five years’ time. With our Trainee Retail Management programme, you can make Commercial Manager of one of our stores in fewer than two. All you need is two A-levels (or equivalent), a head for business and heart for customer service. In return, you’ll enjoy the finest training in the business and the best package on the high street. So the real question is: are you up for it?

Our programme

Our Trainee Management programme lasts 18 months and combines on-the-job learning, real-life project work, and focused development activities. It will give you a unique insight into the operations of one of the UK’s best-loved retailers – then help you use it as the foundation of a forward-looking retail career. Because, by the end of the programme, you’ll be fully equipped to step into the role of Commercial Manager at one of our bustling stores.

Our principles

Every person that steps through our doors has their own relationship with M&S; a familiarity and trust that goes beyond that of other retailers. And we work hard to earn this trust. It’s not just our pioneering Plan A pledge to help the planet and operate sustainably. It’s about doing the right thing for everyone, every day and in everything we do. It’s how we’ll continue to take the M&S experience forward – and create a company you’ll be proud to be part of.

Our team

M&S might be made up of thousands of different people, but they all have one thing in common – they believe in winning as a team. So, if you need a little help, someone will roll up their sleeves and lend you a hand. If you’ve got a question, someone will be happy to share their experience. Join the M&S family and you’ll feel valued, supported and respected. It’s good to know.
