Matt, Retail

My first role at Argos was actually a weekend job. I was a student at the time and just looking to earn a bit of money, but I was really impressed with the culture of the place. Everyone was friendly and supportive. It must have made a lasting impression on me, because I found myself applying for a full-time role there after my degree.

"The company has shown a lot of faith in me"

“That was six years ago and I’ve come a long way since then. My first full-time role here was Stock Manager. Then I became a Customer Services Manager before moving into store management. Now, I’m responsible for 28 stores across the South East region. The company has shown a lot of faith in me. They’ve invested a lot of time and money to get me to this place.”

"The start of something fresh and exciting"

“Unveiling our first ever digital concept store was a big highlight for me. We had to keep the project under wraps and it was all very hush-hush. The look on customers’ faces when they first walked into the store was hard to beat. They couldn’t believe the pens and paper were gone. I could see there and then this was the start of something fresh and exciting.”
