About this apprentice employer

One thing’s for sure: retail is playing a critical role in these uncertain times, and M&S is ready to push boundaries to lead the industry into a greener, speedier, more inspiring digital era. That’s why we’re revolutionising how we work and offering our most exciting opportunities yet, attracting the big thinkers, bold movers and boundary breakers. More and more, they’re realising there’s never been a better time to join us and make an immediate impact.


M&S does more than move with the times. We’re used to setting the standard, whether it’s our inventive food flavour combos, environmental work and ethical style of business, or developing new experiences to constantly surprise our customers across the globe, in-store and online. So day after day, you’ll have fresh chances to transform a much-loved business with over 32 million customers worldwide, carve out the unique career path you’ve always wanted and enjoy all the rewards that come with it.

The pace and progression combined with the good nature you’d expect from people who work at M&S is what makes it so special here. We’re down-to-earth at every level, but driven, each and every one of us, to go on to influence the business and shape its wider communities. It’s a career filled with purpose. And we’re ready to do a whole lot more. We’re ready to change for good. Are you?


One of the best things about M&S is how different we all are. We want similar things, but our amazing array of backgrounds, abilities, genders and orientations inspires individual ways of getting there. If you’re wondering if we’re a business that actually cares about diversity, then the fact 40% of our senior management team is female and we continually aspire to develop female future leaders is one example.

Since 2004 our employability programme, Marks & Start, has supported over 2,000 individuals facing barriers each year, get into work. And our internal inclusivity networks help our colleagues to form allies and ensure their voice is heard. We truly are a feel-good place to work and we guarantee the equal opportunities and policies to back it up.
