Team Manager - Merry Hill
Lead the retail revolution
The sweeping innovations we’re rolling out at M&S will define a new era of retail. And we want you to help us introduce them to our customers. As part of the leadership team in-store, you’ll help us transform the business on a record scale simply by showing everyone how creating the perfect customer experience can change M&S for good.
As a person, you’ll be driven to learn more and more about the retail landscape – but you’ll also be ready to reshape it. With your forward-thinking nature, you’ll be more than comfortable adapting to the new digital tools we bring in-store and will train your team colleagues to be just as confident. Both in thriving on new developments and spotting opportunities to impress our customers.
You know a key reason customers come to M&S is they want to be surprised and delighted by what we have to offer. For you, this means showing every member of your team how to be upbeat, creative and more than ready to make somebody’s day, every day. And also having the skills to work across different departments, from Food to Clothing and Home, keeping everyone on track to go above and beyond their sales targets. If you can cultivate this kind of team – one that succeeds by moving forward rather than simply holding its own – we’ll recognise your potential and take your leadership career further.In-Store FAQs
