Marks & Spencer To Hire 19,000 Christmas Staff For 2017

Marks & Spencer is on a massive recruitment drive to find 19,000 temporary staff to fill their Christmas jobs this year.

The high street retailer has hundreds of Christmas vacancies at locations all over the UK and the temporary staff (or ‘Moment Makers’ as M&S like to call them) will receive 20 per cent in-store discount as well as a competitive hourly rate.

We’ve already seen around 100 seasonal vacancies being offered by M&S in York, Leicestershire and Kent, but the company is advertising dozens of temporary jobs in most student towns and cities of the country.

And, if you are looking for something more long term, then you’ll be pleased to hear that, last year, Marks & Spencer made around 1,000 of their temporary Christmas staff permanent after the New Year.

Head of Region for Marks & Spencer in East Midlands South, Zoe Gibbard, said: “Making every moment special for our customers in Leicester 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,” added Ms Gibbard.

You can search for Marks & Spencer Christmas jobs where you are studying - or in your hometown if you are heading back for the holidays - by filtering by location on this page of the M&S careers website.

And it isn’t just the huge high street chains that are recruiting for Christmas already. We have Christmas vacancies for students at the smallest of firms right up to massive companies. You can start applying for holiday jobs today on our page of Christmas jobs for students.
