M&S is on the lookout for 50 ‘seasonal colleagues’ in Edinburgh to help their customers get ready for the festive season. A variety of Christmas temporary roles are available in clothing, home and food departments with applications open now.

The temporary staff will play a vital role in bringing the magic to Edinburgh customers this Christmas, from helping to find the perfect festive jumper, to choosing the show-stopper centrepiece for the dinner table – whether that’s the mouth-watering Perfect Turkey, or the sumptuous Vegan Butternut, Almond & Pecan Nut Roast.

The new recruits will also be on hand to promote exciting festive collaborations such as the new Frozen 2 collection, with merchandise available across all Kidswear sections in M&S stores.

M&S has already launched its online gift store on M&S.com and introduced in-store gift shops in all stores.

Sacha Berendji, Retail, Operations and Property Director at Marks & Spencer said : “The run up to Christmas is one of the busiest times of year and we want to make shopping with us as enjoyable and easy as possible. This means we need more great colleagues on hand to offer a brilliant service and help customers get everything they need, from the big gifts right down to the trimmings. We have a fantastic team in Edinburgh and, every year, many of the additional colleagues we recruit stay with us, so we very much look forward to welcoming applicants.”

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.
