Marks & Spencer is to hire 500 extra seasonal staff in online distribution in expectation of high Christmas demand as Covid restrictions continue.
The recruitment of fixed-term contract staff at M&S’ online distribution centre Castle Donington comes on top of the creation of 400 permanent roles in July.
Together, the hirings mean the retailer will have increased staff numbers by 30% year on year to approximately 4,000.
