Working for Argos

At Argos, the word retail could describe everything we do. The people in our distribution and Contact Centres are supporting a massive retail operation whilst the people at head office are driving it forward.

Of course, retail management doesn’t just mean being a store manager. There are always plenty of other people starting or progressing their retail management careers with Argos. Argos regularly has opportunities for team leader in our stores and for stock managers and customer service managers right the way up to area managers and regional general managers.

Argos has always been dedicated to providing their customers with the best rang of goods at the most competitive prices. Not to mention the most convenient shopping experience. This has meant they’ve continually evolved to improve and widen the range of services they offer.

But whatever they do, they realise that they can only be as good as their people. Argos people are the real secret to their success! The ones who deliver the outstanding customer service that makes Argos more than just another shop and keeps their customers coming back for more, time and time again.
