Christmas & Seasonal
Few places bring the magic and sparkle of Christmas to life like M&S. But, the extra buzz means we need temporary Customer Assistants who can keep up with the festive pace. And still go above and beyond to make every purchase a pleasure for each customer. And we need just as much energy from our Temporary Warehouse Operatives in our state-of-the-art Distribution Centre. It’s a hub of peak season activity, but if you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, nothing beats the atmosphere – or the experience you get here. Come join us at the most magical time of the year.
What we look for in you
Whether you’re in store, or getting some valuable experience in our state-of-the-art distribution centre, you’ll love making the holidays special for each and every customer, however they choose to shop with us. It’s a busy period but the feeling is second-to-none, with so many opportunities to impress our customers with your proactive service and product knowledge. Our seasonal roles typically run from September through the festive period, but we also offer temporary jobs throughout the year.
The salesfloor is all-go in the run-up to Christmas. But you’ll also think about our customers changing priorities and the special things we can offer them over Easter, Halloween, Bonfire Night – whatever it is, you’ll get them excited to buy.
Everything has to move fast, look amazing and work to perfection at Christmas. So your job will be directing deliveries, keeping up with changing stock, and making sure that everything is always well replenished.
Get our customers excited for Christmas by talking about the smell of cinnamon buns and gingerbread men – while recommending the treats they should stock their cupboards with.
Our beauty and skincare products should be even more popular gifts at Christmas time. From creating the perfect look to identifying the perfect product, you’ll give our customers reason to come back again and again.
Customers come in looking for lattes and hot chocolates to warm them from the cold. This is your opportunity to show them all the amazing snacks and tell them about the other exciting gifts we’ve got around the store.
The festive season is a busy time for our deli counter. But nothing will make you happier than seeing families decide which trimmings to buy for their Christmas dinners, and helping them make their minds up.
Why M&S in Peak season?
I love the buzz around the store at Christmas time, everyone is so upbeat! Plus I get to do my favourite job of the year - working on the turkey desk (Christmas food to order section!), making sure all our customers have the perfect Christmas dinner for the big day!
