The other 300 jobs will be on the clothing and home side of M&S – helping prepare M&S’s clothing products for shipment to stores. The roles in this part of the distribution centre are general warehouse positions, focusing on picking and packing within a automated warehousing environment.

New recruits will be given overtime opportunities and weekly bonus payments of £70 until January 2022.

Eddie Smith, Bradford DC general manager at GXO, said: “With less than two months to go until Christmas, many customers are getting their shopping done early this year – which means we’re as busy as ever here at the M&S Bradford Distribution Centre.

"That’s why we’re looking for 600 new recruits to join our friendly team – and with flexible hours, permanent opportunities, and a great team spirit on offer, why not apply today to play a part in the M&S Christmas.”
