PRINCES TRUST - Retail Opportunity with M&S

March 2020 sees the start of the next Prince’s Trust Get Into Retail programme with our national partner, Marks and Spencer. This will run from Monday 2nd March 2020 – Thursday 19th March 2020 inclusive (9am-5pm) and we are now looking for suitable young people, to take part.

Where will it take place?
During the programme, all training days will be held at M&S Store,  72 Queen St, Cardiff, CF10 2XG although during the programme, each young person will also be allocated either M&S Cardiff Queen Street or M&S Cardiff Culverhouse Cross for their work placement.

Who can apply?
Any young people aged 16 -25 inclusive, who are interested in working within the retail industry, keen to increase their employability skills in this sector and able to fully commit to the programme dates including the Get Ready session and The Taster Day. Anyone interested in being considered should now get in touch  with the Prince’s Trust

How does it work?
Due to the limited place available for this particular opportunity, all prospective young people will be assessed for suitability prior to the Taster Day at a 2 hour Get Ready Session which is scheduled for 2-4pm on Thursday 20th February in Cardiff and designed to help young people prepare well for the Taster Day. Suitable young people will then be invited to attend the Taster Day in Cardiff on Tuesday 25th February. This is likely to include icebreakers, team-building activities, an introduction to M&S, and Prince’s Trust paperwork.

The small print!

  • Any young person considering this programme must be motivated and have at least a degree of personal confidence as it will involve engaging with M&S customers, (albeit with supervision in the initial stages of the programme). They should also be aware that working in a retail environment demands a lot of time on one’s feet
  • M&S will not consider any young person with criminal convictions
  • Although M&S uniform is provided for the actual programme, all young people will be expected to wear smart interview attire for the Get Ready session and the Taster Day
  • Public transport travelling expenses can be  reimbursed for the Get Ready session, Taster Day and during the programme
  • M&S will provide each young person with £3 for lunch on every day of the programme and the Taster Day
