About the programme
Our people are big believers in the M&S values. They’re happy to commit to giving their all for our customers, not just because it’s a passion, but because they know we take care of our employees. It requires a special kind of person to create this culture, and as a HR intern you’ll learn the skills and characteristics to become just that.
This is perfect for ambitious people who are finishing their first or second year. What better way to spend your summer than making friends and taking on experience that can enhance your career before it’s even begun? This is eight weeks you’ll in which you’ll thrive and open up a lifetime of opportunities at our Head Office in London.
You’ll have to be prepared and passionate about fast-moving retail and the people policies that make it possible. We tend to look for genuine advocates of HR, who can tailor the ways in which they approach different individuals – always sympathetic to and in-tune with their needs. But the real skill lies in making them feel a part of a team. Studying a relevant degree is a big plus, but you yourself will receive all the support you need to do a great job and further your career prospects.
