Marks and Spencer

At M&S, we'll cherish and nurture both, building on your strengths and providing you with a rewarding career path.  Many of our store and senior managers started out as school leavers.  Your M&S journey could start here too.

An M&S Apprenticeship is a fantastic opportunity to develop career-long skills, gain a nationally recognised qualification – and be paid while you're doing it.  You can choose where you'd like to focus: Retail, Distribution or Head Office; and all of our schemes offer a mix of classroom-based training and on-the-job learning. So you'll get to know the theory – and get the chance to put it into practice.

By the end of your training, we'll have equipped you with vital skills you can call upon throughout your career. 

Applications are now open for our 2018 intake. 

Application deadlines vary between November and December 2017; please check individual job listings for specific dates.  Please be aware that some roles may close sooner depending on application numbers.

Bookings have already been made for 45 students to attend on Friday 23 November and letters have been sent to Year 13 students who are specifically looking at Apprenticeships rather than considering going to university.  These students will have first choice on attending the event and any places remaining after the deadline will be given out on a first come first serve basis.


Year 11, 12 and 13 Students can register themselves, with parents, to attend both events for Saturday 7 October (Olympia London) and Saturday 24 November (ExCel Centre).
