High street retailer Argos is recruiting more than 10,000 seasonal workers for the festive period.
Customer advisors and stock assistants are being sought to support over 840 Argos stores to meet customer demand for toys, home products, video games, technology, sports and Christmas gifts.
The number includes Fast Track drivers to support Argos’ same-day delivery store-to-customer door distribution service.
Initial contracts for all vacancies are around three to four months, with the potential for some roles to become permanent at the end of the season, where vacancies exist. Recruits will be offered a minimum of 10 hours per week (minimum of six hours for weekend staff). Roles are available at stores across the United Kingdom.
Argos director of retail and customer operations Steve Carson said: “The Christmas period is naturally an extremely busy and exciting time of year for Argos and our ability to offer more than 60,000 products for the whole family is why millions of people shop with us over the festive season.
“Job creation is one of the most important contributions we make to the communities in which we serve and we are committed to maintaining the friendly, personal service we are known for, whether customers are shopping in-store or buying online for home delivery.
“The work is fast-paced, varied and rewarding with the potential to learn a whole set of new skills. Many in the past have gone on to develop their career with us and progress rather rapidly to run a team, department or even store, helping to drive sales and deliver great customer service.”
Argos serves around 120 million customer transactions throughout its store network every year, with 95% of the population living less than 10 miles from an Argos store.
