After a couple of years I decided to move out of retail and explore the world of recruitment which led me to work in various boutique agencies covering a range of disciplines including Finance, IT, Retail and Digital! It was then that I knew I wanted to combine my passion for retail with my experience and understanding of the recruitment industry. When the opportunity arose to work for M&S it was a dream come true!
Whilst I have worked for M&S I have covered Retail Management, Head Office Retail and Logistics recruitment, I have recently moved across to cover Central Services which involves looking after 3 M&S sites across multiple disciplines - Finance, HR and Customer Services.
One minute I can be scoping out requirements, sourcing and attracting top talent and the next minute designing and developing assessment tools, not to mention being exposed to various projects across the business that feed into recruitment.
The customer is always at the heart of everything we do across M&S as a business and that isn't just the customers who shop in our stores, from colleagues, peers, stakeholders and candidates I pride myself on providing the best service to each and everybody that I encounter!
In a world where technology is evolving so quickly, stay up to date, be in the know and network as much as you can.
