About the programme

If you want to start a future with the original retail innovator, the M&S Retail Management Apprenticeship is for you.

Over 18 to 24 months, you’ll get to experience retail during its most substantial evolution in decades. Food, Fashion, Home and Store Operations are all adapting to the new digital landscape – and you’ll be in the thick of it, even managing £multi-million budgets.

You’ll be learning from the ground floor upwards and by the end of your first year you’ll know exactly what goes into running a department. Your Apprenticeship Coach will show you the art of leadership and people management, giving you the confidence to first line-manage Customer Assistants and then, as you progress, Section Managers. By talking to experienced Managers, you’ll also learn how the whole retail operation fits together. In fact, when it comes to mentoring and coaching, the M&S Retail Management Apprenticeship leaves no stone unturned.

At the end of the programme, you’ll have a detailed understanding of our business, ready to move into the role of a Commercial Manager and take an entire department under your wing. You’ll also have a recognised certificate equivalent to a foundation degree.
