Buying & Merchandising

How is it that Argos always has that thing you want? Simple. By having an expert team calling the shots.


Few can match the scale and scope of our Buying & Merchandising operation. Every year, this expert team sources tens of thousands of products across a vast range of categories. From Barbie dolls and barbecues to vacuum cleaners and video games, it’s their job to decide what products will be hot next year and how much we should stock.

Operating in a fast-moving multi-channel environment, they’re responsible for managing supplier relationships, forecasting demand, developing our own brands, and so much more.

You won’t just be sourcing and buying product ranges for our customers – you’ll be helping us create them. So, expect to plan our strategy for the next few years, before negotiating the deals that make those plans a reality. If you can spot market trends ahead of our competition – this is the team to join.


When you source over 53,000 products, optimising the availability of our stock becomes paramount. You could be working across any one of hundreds of product lines – from video games to jewellery. What’s certain is that you’ll aim to meet specific sales and profit targets, focusing in on the products that sell best and worst.
