The store will employ 75 members of staff and is recruiting now for 20 full and part-time positions.

Jobs include roles in the delicatessen and café, main shop floor and backstage.

Store manager Paul Gregory said: “We’re hugely excited to be just two months away from opening M&S Foodhall Chichester and we’re currently building a strong team to launch the store and serve our new customers.

“The key to success for any new store is a dedicated and passionate team, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring many job opportunities to Chichester.”

Applicants are advised that experience of working in retail is desirable but not essential and the store is looking for ‘enthusiastic and motivated individuals’ to provide good customer service. In addition to training, new starters will be given an induction providing a basic overview of the businesses.

Paul added: “M&S is committed to ensuring each and every member of its staff has a fulfilling role and enjoys their time working in store. We’re really looking forward to meeting applicants and completing our team over the next month.”

Operations section co-ordinator Jamie McGreal has been with M&S for 28 years. He said: “I celebrated my 25 year anniversary at M&S with Paul and I know he’ll be a fantastic leader for M&S Foodhall Chichester.

“I’m really excited to be part of the new store. Chichester is a vibrant historic town, which has such a strong community spirit, and we’re really looking forward to capturing this atmosphere with the new team.”
