I joined the company through an internship about two and a half years ago. I had just finished my master’s degree and I was looking to start my career with a well-established company where I’d have lots of opportunity for progression. With Argos, I found just that. My managers invested a lot in me and encouraged me to take control of my learning and development. With their encouragement, I’ve actually managed to be promoted three times in less than three years.
"Argos always invests a lot in its people"
“Argos always invests a lot in its people and works to develop its talent. I should know – that’s the mainstay of my job now! I assess general training needs and develop the learning strategy for my area of the company. I give people the tools they need to progress. It’s a lot of responsibility, and an amazing opportunity for me. It would probably have been easier for Argos to hire someone with 10 years of experience for this position, but they took a gamble on me and it’s worked out really well. It just goes to show how much the company invests in you.”
