Marks & Spencer opens 2014 graduate scheme

Marks & Spencer has opened its 2014 Graduate Scheme and Business Placement Programme with over 200 opportunities being offered across its stores and office locations.

In addition to retail management, the 140 graduate roles will include positions in more specialist areas such as IT software engineering, M&S.com, food development and supply chain as well as general buying and merchandising.

The retailer will also offer 60 one year placements to undergraduates as part of their degree course under its Business Placement Programme from which around 80% of recruits are subsequently offered places on the graduate scheme.

For the second year running, the IT software engineer scheme will be one of the biggest programmes with 15 places available as the retailer pursues its multi-channel ambitions. As part of its commitment to growth in this area, M&S has sponsored the Target Jobs IT and Computer Science Undergraduate of the Year Award with the winner being offered a place on the 2015 graduate programme.

Kay Jones-Wolsey, head of recruitment at M&S said: "In a fast paced industry like retail it’s essential that we develop our expertise in growth areas through a pipeline of fresh new talent. The breadth of roles available shows just how varied a career in retail can be – with options for graduates studying all sorts of disciplines. Each of our schemes offers excellent opportunities for progression and many of our graduates have moved swiftly up the ladder at M&S."
