The size and scope of M & S means we've got opportunities you simply won't find at other retailers. And whatever area you choose to work in, you'll get all the training and development you need.
You would work with suppliers to ensure our products are made safely and to our agreed standards, whilst working with the category team to develop innovative products and the technical vision for the strategic needs of a Business Unit.
Your technical expertise and passion for exceeding expectations will be utilised in our forward-thinking Food division. Some of your Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) would be to continuously drive the innovation and improvement of our products whilst driving sales, and ensuring compliance.

- Degree level technical qualification in an appropriate subject
- Extensive industry experience within the food sector

Above all, you need to be passionate about Food and innovation and want to drive our business forward!
