Early Careers is something we are proud to promote and develop within Marshalls. We work with a number of local colleges and training providers offering work experience placements and apprenticeship opportunities for people starting out in their career journey.  

We have been involved in Greenhead College’s Placement and Work Shadowing Scheme (PAWS)  for a number of years now which provides students in their first year of college a full week shadowing professionals within Marshalls and some project work.  In 2019 we have been able to offer over 10 placements during the PAWS week in areas such as Engineering, New Product Development, Logistics, Marketing, Digital and more. 

We also work very closely with Kirklees College to deliver a number of Apprenticeship Programmes, ranging from Mechatronic Maintenance Technicians to Customer Service advisors.  For the last two years we have run an exclusive Essentials of Management Programme through the college which equips new or first time managers with the skills and knowledge they need to manage and lead a team. 

In fact, we have over 70 Apprentices within Marshalls all working towards different qualifications (some at Degree level) across many different functions including Finance, Digital and IT, Marketing, Engineering, Sales and Business Management.  Check out one of our testimonials below.

Continued support

I have worked for Marshalls since 2014, however I made the decision to apply for an apprenticeship to change my career and move into Digital Marketing.

This decision has been the best thing I could have done, Marshalls have given me continued support through my studies and the apprenticeship scheme has allowed me to utilise skills that I already have whilst gaining knowledge in the industry through hands-on experience.
