M&S expands Christmas recruitment drive to fill 10,000 roles
Marks & Spencer is recruiting 10,000 new Customer Assistants across the UK to support its stores over the festive period.
The new colleagues will join M&S from 19 November - with a range of start dates, variety of roles and flexible working patterns available.
The number of vacancies reflects more than a 40% increase on last year and highlights the additional investment the retailer is making in colleague hours to support customers on the shop floor.
Sacha Berendji, Operations Director at M&S, said: "The Christmas period is a busy but exciting time for Marks & Spencer.
"Our fantastic store colleagues play such a big part in delivering the magic of Marks & Spencer at Christmas to our customers. And this year we’re recruiting even more colleagues to ensure there’s always someone on hand to offer support and recommendations.
"With a range of roles and flexible working patterns available, anyone who is interested in being part of something special this Christmas should visit our careers website to apply."
The recruitment drive comes after the retailer offered its customers the chance to win their share of £1 million M&S vouchers, with rewards up to the value of £100 up for grabs.
Winning customers will be notified via email and received a digital M&S voucher in their Sparks account today, 16 October.
