M&S to give staff free meals and vouchers


MARKS and Spencer has launched a £15million cost of living support package for thousands of staff, including free meals and sanitary products.

The scheme includes a second pay rise this year with hourly rates rising this autumn to at least £10.20 for 40,000 staff. A full-time customer assistant will now earn over £100 more each month than in October 2021. M&S will also provide 4,500 salaried staff with a one-off £250 M&S voucher.

And the retailer will expand its free food policy, which already applies to store staff, to its distributi­on centre in Castle Donington, Leicesters­hire.

Chief executive Stuart Machin said the firm ‘wants to do what it can to help ease the strain’.
