Company Details

Argos is a hugely popular retailer in the United Kingdom. The company has over 750 outlets across the UK and Ireland - and they have been a prolific employer of students and graduates throughout the years.

If you are looking for a part time student job at the weekends or in the evenings, or a full time position during the Easter, summer or Christmas holidays then there are plenty of opportunities for students at Argos. There is also a regular intake to the graduate programme at Argos each year.

Did you know that over 30 thousand people work at Argos?

Well, it is not too surprising that they need so many employees to help them out when you consider that the famous Argos catalogue has a place in 2 of every 3 homes in the UK. The retailer processes over 140 million orders in store, via telephone and online, and they need a massive team of employees to make sure that those orders translate to purchases.

In the run up to the busy Christmas period each year, Argos ramps up recruitment by around 50 per cent - which means that they take on an average about 10 thousand employees in temporary positions for the festive holidays. Isn’t that just a perfect opportunity for students who are going back to their hometown for the Christmas break?

So, what kind of jobs are available for students and graduates at Argos?

There is a huge variety of work on offer at Argos - it isn’t just the picking and packing jobs you might expect. In addition to in-store work as customer advisers, sales assistants and stock assistants which are a brilliant opportunity as seasonal and flexible jobs for students, there is also plenty of scope to move into managerial positions at Argos.

There is also a chance of student work at Argos call centres and distribution facilities too. Again, most of those opportunities can be either a full or part time basis - making them an ideal proposition for students who are looking for some work which they can arrange around their studies.

Graduates interested in working for a retail giant like Argos are catered for with an impressive graduate scheme which could have you moving into a managerial role within just a few years of leaving university. Graduate placements are available in retail stores, distribution centres and contact centres as well as at Argos Head Office in Milton Keynes.

So, with so much opportunity on offer at Argos for students and graduates with the right skills and characteristics, why not consider a part time job, a spot of holiday work or a full time permanent graduate career with this successful high street retailer?
