Welcome to the M&S Alumni Network!

There's a reason our network is called the M&S Family as for so many of us – including me – the time worked at M&S is more than a job; it is like being part of an extended family. I've been an M&S man and boy, and my Dad Joe worked for the business too, so I know better than anyone that when you join the M&S family, you never really leave. I am proud to have been a part of the M&S Family for nearly 40 years and to stay a part of the family as the Alumni President, helping former colleagues stay connected to each other and the business.

Thank you for being an integral part of the M&S family. Our colleagues past and present remain the key driving force behind our brand, culture, and success, and I hope you get involved and stay in touch.

"Coming to M&S in a permanent role you become a family, especially in your own section. In M&S, we were all one team. There’s been leaders, advisors and other colleagues that I’ve taken things from along the way and adapted my management style to grab the best pieces."

"M&S taught me the importance of building relationships. Because of who M&S are and its brand reputation, I was given such a springboard to network across HR, and that’s how I gained my knowledge of the industry."

“They say that although you might leave M&S, M&S doesn’t ever leave you - and that is so true. It's why I helped start an unofficial alumni network on Facebook a few years ago to help connect the many colleagues that worked together at Baker Street.

On the back of the success of our Facebook group, I was delighted to be invited by M&S to help launch the official M&S Family alumni network - and I've really enjoyed being a part of it over the past year or so.

For me, the best part about it is how it keep you informed on the latest happenings at M&S and at the same time allows you to reminisce about all the old times with all the historic archive content."
