About the programme

Everyone has a different M&S product they love that creates a special moment when they buy it. Finding these comes down to our buying teams. They’re the ones who scour the planet to source the best new products at the best possible prices. So, if you know what people want and have a keen eye for business, then this is the perfect programme for you.

Join us here and you’ll step into the biggest shopping market you can imagine, starting in the role of Graduate Trainee Assistant Buyer. Working alongside one of our buying teams such as Mens, Kids, Womenswear or Home, you’ll help find the next big thing before liaising with our internal teams to develop something ready to be sold in store.

As a Buyer, your diverse day job could involve a mix of briefing Designers, working with suppliers, trialling new products, or helping launch a product.

Throughout, you’ll get all the training you need, and after just 12 months you could be offered an Assistant Buyer role. From there, you’ll gradually take on more responsibility until you’re ready to become a fully-fledged Buyer, in charge of a specific department.

Ideally you’ll need a buying related degree, although we’ll consider other courses if you have relevant experience. You’ll also need to be confident, organised and comfortable working under pressure.
