I started working at Argos part-time 21 years ago, on the tills, while I was still at university. I loved the pace and the energy of the place, so when I was offered a managerial position, I stayed on.
"Support at every step"
“Since then, I’ve had support at every step. I’ve been assigned mentors and coaches to help me through the early stages. I’ve combined on-the-job learning with formal courses at Manchester Business School. And I’ve even been trained to become a coach myself.”
"Life outside the office is just as important as life inside it"
“All of this has affected more than just my career. I feel the skills I’ve gained in mentoring others has helped me to be a better father to my five and three-year-olds. It also helps that my job’s flexible enough to spend meaningful time with them. But then, people at Argos understand that life outside the office is just as important as life inside it.”
