HR Business Placement

When it comes to HR, there's no substitute for direct experience. Spend a year on the M&S Business Placement and you'll get invaluable knowledge and all the HR experience you can handle.

People in our stores, Head Office teams and supply chain network who live our values and enhance our customers' lives make M&S what it is. Which is why Human Resources is at the heart of our business and vital to our success. In this placement, you'll see the full picture of what we do, the challenges we face and the people who make it all happen.

About the Programme

We'll introduce you to a range of HR activities, giving you exposure and experience right across our business. In a store, you'll be working with a regional HR Business Partner on local strategy, getting to grips with both the people and commercial sides of our business in either Clothing & Home or Food. One month you could be learning a specialist aspect of HR in one of our HR Centres of Excellence; the next, you could be actively engaged on a commercial project as part of a Head Office team.

About you

It's a great insight into the commercial and people side of M&S; from People Policy to Learning and Development. If you do well and show potential to go further, we'll invite you back to our graduate scheme when your degree's finished.
