Logistics Internship 2023

Logistics Intern Programmes

Fixed term: June – August 2023 

Make our logistics legendary

Keen to get to the heart of customer service? To deliver people-first logistics solutions with the power to transform business? Join us on our Logistics Intern Programme and experience what it is like to work as part of the on-site management team in our Castle Donington Distribution Centre.  Because it’s never too soon to think about your future legacy. 

Our logistics team are right at the heart of delivering the products our customers want through a service they love. Logistics has enabled our transformation into a truly multi-channel retailer; through key developments like creating our own platform to give us greater control; establishing our hi-tech E-Commerce Distribution Centre; and via our international websites and in-store technologies, which all enhance the customer experience. 

Through the ten-week Internship you’ll become an integral part of the team, gaining hands-on practical management experience as your work across a number of departments. You’ll see how our innovations as well as how our existing practices help us deliver a culture of continuous improvement, and how we use data to drive our operation and achieve our targets.  Learning all about how we engage, lead and develop our people along the way, and seeing first-hand how our leaders deliver for customers. Show an ability to adapt to meet demands, a curiosity for the commercial world, an analytical mindset, and a passion for crafting a seamless experience, and you’ll do well here. Do really well, and you could even be offered a place on our graduate scheme. 

Legends are made, not born – so we’ll invest in your soft skills development and help you understand a bit more about yourself. You’ll come away with greater skills, knowledge and insight into what a career in Logistics could look like once you graduate. 

You don’t need a specific degree to apply for this programme, but you’ll need to be an analytical problem solver, with a love of process and delivery, an interest in leadership and a determination to succeed.  

Please note this role is based at in our Castle Donington Distribution Centre in the Midlands and you need to be prepared to work various shifts across our 24/7 operation. You may also have occasional travel to different sites and our Support Centre in London.

M&S is ready to push boundaries to lead the retail 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. There’s never been a better time to be part of our team. Marks & Spencer aims to be an inclusive organisation, trusted and admired by our colleagues, customers and suppliers. Join us and make an immediate impact.

We are committed to an active Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunities Policy, which starts with our recruitment and selection process, and we are happy to talk flexible working.

If you consider yourself to require reasonable adjustments to any part of our recruitment process, we invite you to share those requirements with us when completing your application. We will make every effort to ensure your needs are met to provide a fair and transparent process of assessment.

Where I started

Today’s graduate; tomorrow’s legend. Many of our more senior colleagues and leaders started out in early careers positions. Some of whom follow a linear career path, many used their experiences and skills to move elsewhere in the business. Just know that you’ll be supported to follow the path you choose to carve for yourself, whatever that may be.

An example of a career path within Logistics could be:

  • Team Manager
  • Shift Manager
  • Operations Manager
  • Senior Operations Manager

Application Guidance

Legends seize the chance to use their strengths every day. That’s why we’re looking to see what makes you tick through the following assessment stages:

  1. An online assessment taking approximately 45 minutes, focusing on your individual strengths
  2. An on-demand video interview
  3. A final assessment stage; either at an assessment centre attended alongside peers, or a final interview

We’ll support anyone who requires reasonable adjustments to their application process – just let us know before the assessments start.

Some technical programmes may ask you to complete a short numerical reasoning test or a coding assessment. And most of our assessments are untimed, but we’ll make you aware of any timed elements in advance.

As a tip, avoid overly rehearsing your responses, especially for your video interview. We want you to be bold, be different, and be you.
