Early Careers

The future needs your vision. M&S has evolved into a digital-first business, but our transformation is ongoing and we want you to be the disruptive force that inspires us to discover new ways of wowing our customers. Many of our senior managers started out on one of our Early Careers programmes. Where will your M&S journey take you?

Applications are now closed for the majority of our 2020 Graduate Programmes. The deadline for our Menswear Design Graduate Programme and our Apprenticeships is February 2020, please check individual job listings for specific dates. Please be aware that some roles may close sooner depending on application numbers.
