Why work for us?
Joining M&S means so much more than working for one of the nation's largest retailers. We've built our business on a passion for excellence, a flexible approach in all that we do and by collaborating with one another to put customers first. There's a sense of camaraderie here; a feeling of belonging – probably because we go out of our way to listen to and involve all of our people. And because we want to be the best, we want you to be your best. The size and scope our business mean that the opportunities on offer are as diverse as the people that work here. If you're ready to play your part, you'll be richly rewarded too. From competitive salaries, bonus schemes and flexible working options to opportunities to volunteer in the community, there really is something for everyone.
When Michael Marks and Tom Spencer joined forces to create M&S in 1894, not even they could have foreseen the global success story that was to unfold. From its humble beginnings as a Leeds market stall, M&S is now an international, multi-channel retailer. Our success is in large part due to our guiding principles: Quality, Value, Service, Innovation and Trust.
We're now one of the nation's leading sellers of clothing, food, home products, financial services – and M&S.com, our e-commerce business, is rapidly expanding too. We currently have a £10.3 billion annual turnover, employing over 83,000 people within 59 territories worldwide. In the UK, we have over 850 stores and serve over 33 million customers each week.
