Our customers love the way our feel for design creates special moments. From sharp suits to fashionable footwear and stylish skirts, our Designers keep their fingers on the pulse of what’s hot and deliver it to our millions of customers.

If you’ve a passion for fashion, this is where your ideas could be turned into reality. Drawing on your imagination and feel for fabrics, you’ll work alongside our Design teams across all our product ranges. Involved with in-depth research, as well as creative thinking, you’ll investigate new trends and materials, and contribute towards design that could arrive in our stores.

Working as a Graduate Assistant Designer in Clothing or Lingerie, you’ll be given plenty of responsibilities early on. Before you know it, you’ll be confidently producing technical specifications and making your own mark on our creative ranges. Although based at our Head Office in London, you’ll have the chance to visit our supply base in the UK to see exactly how our clothes are made – something that will help you make lots of great contacts with suppliers.

Naturally, you’ll need a strong sense of style. But you’ll also need a design-related degree along with CAD skills and some experience of using Photoshop and Illustrator.

Learning and Development

Experience is the best teacher, which is why M&S likes to throw you in at the deep end. Real responsibilities on real projects, from day one (no, really). But the learnings aren’t just one way: we’re eager to hear your fresh ideas, to have our ways challenged, in order to grow the business. Of course, it all starts with a comprehensive introduction to M&S. You’re never on your own with us. During this time, you’ll get a basic overview of our business, along with all the information you need about your new role and life with one of the nation’s brightest brands.

On-the-job learning

We’ve plenty of learning opportunities both in store and at our Head Office, which vary according to your scheme. Whether you’re managing people in store, or a valued member of a Head Office team, you’ll be learning while you earn, shouldering real responsibilities and helping to tackle the ever-changing issues of the day. You will be given a specific area of responsibility or a project to manage yourself fairly early on – say yes, it’s a great chance to shine.
