Satnam, Contact Centre

The thing that sold me on Argos was the chance to do customer service work in a different way – from home. I work the hours I book in, so provided I put in the time, I can arrange my work around my personal life. It means I’m able to earn and also be there for my family whenever they need me – I couldn’t ask for more!

"Everyone’s so supportive"

“You might think that working from home means there isn’t a working culture and you’re quite isolated, but that isn’t true for me at all. The team is fantastic and they make an effort to be sociable and keep in touch. Despite working at home I still get the sense of a genuinely friendly atmosphere, and it never feels lonely because everyone’s so supportive.”

"I’ve enjoyed having the chance to mentor people"

“Working from home hasn’t stopped me getting a lot of development opportunities either. I think what I’ve enjoyed most so far was having the chance to mentor people in the company. It’s hugely rewarding to see someone you’ve mentored not only showing their new knowledge, but also passing it on to others. Knowing I’ve transferred skills and helped someone become more confident in the workplace really brings a smile to my face.”
