FOOD BUSINESS PROGRAMME
Our food is not just any food. And it’s always changing as we look for innovative ways to bring great-quality, delicious food to our customers every day.
On this programme, you’ll experience different areas of our Food business and discover first-hand how they work together, bringing exceptional quality, value and innovation to our customers.
If you choose to specialise in Commercial, you’ll finish this programme with the opportunity to continue your career in roles such as a Buyer or Analyst. And if you want to be a Product Specialist, you could look forward to roles such as a Product Developer or Food Events Manager.
You will have structured learning and development, but your career with M&S will be unique to you, with plenty of opportunity to accelerate at pace. Here’s an example of a path someone completing our Food Business Programme might take.
- Product Developer
- Product Development Manager
- Trends and Insights Manager
- Head of Product
Your development is our priority. We’ll give you a structured programme including mentoring, on-the-job training, and opportunities to solve real challenges that will help you build a long-term career at M&S. And, if we believe you can reach your potential faster, we will give you the tools and opportunities to do it. But the person who is really going to make this happen is you. With our support, we want you to own and drive your development.
We’ll provide reasonable adjustments during the interview process. Just tell us what you need, and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.
Your first step will be to complete our online application form and tell us more about who you are and why you want to work with us.
You can only apply to one graduate or school leaver programme during this recruitment cycle that starts in October 2023.
We close our vacancies on a rolling basis and closing dates may be subject to change. We encourage you to submit your full application as soon as possible.
We’ll invite you to take part in an online assessment, where you can find out more about M&S whilst we find out more about you.
If your online assessment is successful, you’ll be invited to an assessment centre alongside your peers. The recruitment process for store-based roles will also include an opportunity to attend your final interview in one of our stores.
