Full marks and real sparks – Marks & Spencer Success
M & SFlexible Friendly Employer
The famous high street brand Marks and Spencer generously partnered with Successful Mums to provide a group of mums with a different kind of Saturday retail therapy: the course covered CV design, interview techniques, tips on what retail employers are really looking for in staff plus the many career options available in retail from shop floor to visual merchandising.
Matt Rowlin, Store Manager said, “With a great blend of previous skills and life experience these women understand the customers’ needs and are a great asset to our store.”
Jane Knight, founder of Successful Mums, also provided tailored 1-to-1 career coaching to boost confidence and explain where flexible jobs are advertised.
The mums wanted to bag a job in retail and we are proud that 80% gained employment or work experience within retail and 100% said that they would recommend the course.
We love to showcase our fantastic mums, who continually create their own paths to success. Read some success stories and hear about their inspirational new careers and business ventures.
