M&S is recruiting 165 additional colleagues this Christmas season in Edinburgh. A variety of roles are available across local stores in departments from Clothing, Home and Food, with applications now open.
The increase in seasonal colleagues for Christmas 2017 will help the retailer make every moment special for customers over the festive period – from purchasing presents (which for most customers begins in October or November) right through to picking up the turkey or the extra bottle of wine on Christmas Eve.
Across the UK, the company is seeking 19,000 “Moment Makers” who can bring smiles to customers’ faces at the busiest and happiest time of year.
Shona Lawrie, M&S Head of Region for Edinburgh Central said, “Making every moment special for our customers in Edinburgh is our mission and it’s never more important than at Christmas time. Every year we value the additional colleagues who help us deliver even better service for the local community. Whilst retail experience is helpful, what we’re really after are colleagues who are ready to roll their sleeves up and be part of a hard-working team – moment makers for our customers”.
Whilst temporary roles appeal to many – including working parents, students and those just looking for a little extra spending money at Christmas – every year a number of M&S seasonal workers remain with the company. Last year nearly 1,000 temps across the UK were offered a permanent role in January and many have progressed over the years to management positions throughout the business.
All new colleagues will have induction training. Rates of pay are competitive and colleagues enjoy a 20% discount on M&S products from their very first day.
