A leading department store plans to hire more than 100 seasonal staff to two of its major Kent stores in the run up to Christmas.
The temporary roles will be available across its clothing, home and food departments.
It comes less than a year after the closure of its stores in Ashford and Deal.
Sacha Berendji, retail, operations and property director at Marks & Spencer said: “The run up to Christmas is one of the busiest times of year and we want to make shopping with us as enjoyable and easy as possible.
"We have a fantastic store teams across Kent and, every year, many of the additional colleagues we recruit stay with us, so we very much look forward to welcoming applicants.”
All staff hired will receive training and a 20% discount on M&S products.
