Oct '12
Marks & Spencer (M&S) has now opened its 2013 Graduate Scheme and Business Placement Programme – offering over 200 opportunities across its store and office locations.

Graduates can now apply for much sought-after retail management roles and specialist schemes such as logistics, food development and e-commerce, as well general buying and merchandising programmes. In addition to the 140 graduate roles, 60 one year placements will be available to undergraduates as part of their degree course.

For the first time, M&S is also recruiting for specialist IT software engineer roles, following a move to bring its software development in-house. These new recruits will help drive the ongoing IT innovation at M&S and support its multi-channel retailing ambitions.

Kay Jones-Wolsey, Head of Recruitment at M&S said; “The graduate scheme provides fantastic opportunities for both M&S and its participants. As a business it helps us maintain a competitive edge – providing a pipeline of fresh and innovate thinking. It also enables us to identify and develop the retail stars of the future – offering candidates real opportunities to progress right to the top of the business.”

Throughout the scheme, graduates are supported by structured technical and leadership training to help develop them as future business leaders. The Business Placement Programme also provides outstanding prospects, with on average 80 per cent of recruits subsequently offered a place on the Graduate Scheme.

M&S received over 13,500 applications for its 2012 graduate scheme – up 23% on the previous year. Applications for this year's schemes will close in December. Successful applicants will progress to assessment days through January and February, with the first intake of graduates joining the business permanently from April 2013.
