Hello, I am currently in college so most of the times on here are not suitable for me. But can I say my availability time?

Hi and thanks for your question. We require a degree of flexibility from all colleagues however you would be asked to give specific shifts and days which you could work and conversely days and times that are unsuitable for you. This would agreed with your line manager in starting employment with us . Most stores will advertise Xmas vacancies during October . I suggest you keep checking our website for suitable jobs which you can do whilst at uni. We often have late night and weekend contracts which normally well work for students. Good luck with your application. Kirsty

I can’t do late night shifts if I have college the next day but I could work after college on Wednesday, full day on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday

This very much depends on the store operational requirements which are linked to store trading and operating hours. Many stores will want last night working however some may be very happy to have weekend only colleagues. I suggest you look online at the stores you are able to access and apply for a suitable vacancy,which may be weekends only for example. During your first week you will be asked to declare your flexibility and availability to esnure your work paater work for you and for M&S. Hope this helps...Kirsty

I have been looking for stores close to me but it seems to be that the hours are during the time I’m meant to be in college
