Food Technologist Business Placement

Everyone loves M&S food, but few people realise quite how much care, skill and sheer creativity goes into producing it. This is your chance to step into one of the UK's biggest, most technical and creative culinary environments; see the master food technologists at work and even see your ideas on our shelves.

About the Programme

You'll work alongside our Food Technology experts, ensuring our products are of the highest quality and our supplier factories maintain the same standards too - guaranteeing we deliver the inspirational products our customers expect. And to make sure you're getting the most out of your time with us, we'll also give you your own food business project to work on.

If that wasn't enough, after your six-month placement with us, we'll secure you a further six-month placement with one of our suppliers too. Meaning you get a full, rounded view of the food technology business and the innovation that makes us such an industry leader.

About you

This is a highly technical job, so as well as having a passion for food, it'll be a great help if you're studying for a food science-related qualification; ideally, a scientific degree that covers microbiology. Also, you'll need to enjoy working as part of a close-knit team in a fast-paced environment.
