“It does feel like a start-up working here because everything is so new – nearly everyone has joined in the last two years. We’re growing fast, and there are new faces all the time, but everyone integrates really quickly. We’re like a family. I was taken on as a junior at Argos, but within just a few months, I was promoted to my development role.”- Zubar – Software Development Engineer.
“As a developer on the digital store browser platform, I work on the tablets – a digital version of our famous printed catalogue. I also develop the kiosks, which are like unmanned tills in the stores. I came to Argos because I’d heard about their ambitious digital transformation programme. It’s great, because all that change pushes you out of your comfort zone, and encourages you to learn more.”- Andrew – Android Developer.
“There’s a big digital transformation going on at Argos. In my role, I work with creative, content, analytics and category teams to deliver promotional initiatives across our digital channels. It’s exciting, stimulating work. There’s a lot of pressure, but I’m always learning something new.” - Samir – Digital Implementation Executive.
“My favourite part of working for Argos is that there are so many opportunities. You get stuck into projects from day one, and in such a fast-paced environment you develop and learn new skills really quickly. Plus, working for such a large company means you have access to loads of resources and courses to help you progress your personal development – and this is really encouraged throughout the business.” - Chloe – Digital Graduate.
“The advice I would give to someone that is thinking about applying is…do it! Aside from that my main advice is just be willing to learn. You get a lot of new information and have to learn so many different things in the first couple of months of joining, so it is important that someone is willing to step up to the challenge and take on something completely different and jump into the world of work.
Also, don’t feel like you need to be serious all the time. Part of the fun of working at Argos is that you can have a laugh and have fun while doing your work – it’s not all about heads down, get on with it (although when you have a lot on this might be wise!)" - Rebecca – Digital Graduate.
