I’m currently on a 4-5 month project management secondment within the Product Information team, I’m working on two key projects. The first is a strategic customer-based project, focusing on how we can best use our customer feedback across the department. The second project is more holistic, I am looking at ways to improve our processes, to ensure Argos’ online products are launched on time and in the best way for our customers.
“This secondment is a great example of the career development opportunities at Argos. I’ve only been here 12 months, and I’ve already been given the chance to pick up experience and skills in a new role. And it’s not just career progression either; they encourage your development in all kinds of ways. For example, you can choose from a lot of different role-related training modules. When I first joined, I only planned to stay for about 18 months. But seeing what’s on offer, and how seriously they take your development has completely changed my mind.”
“I think my proudest achievement so far was successfully managing the production of the Argos Christmas Gift Guide. We printed 7.5 million copies overall, and there was even a TV spot. It’s such an iconic publication – being able to play a big part in its production was genuinely rewarding.”
