You might already have customer service experience and you’re looking to develop into new areas or to refine your skills and become the expert in your field.

Take ownership to drive your own development with support from your line manager. This could mean taking on training for new skills or teams, or it could be looking for opportunities to add value to the customer journey within your current role
Bring a personalised approach to the customer journey, and be the voice and personality of our brand at all times, whether that’s Argos, Habitat, or Tu Clothing
Contribute to positive team spirit, listening to and supporting your colleagues by sharing knowledge and best practice

This role is a permanent role after a 6 month successful probationary period from the start date . You will be working between 24 and 35 hours per week on a variety of flexible shift patterns (between 7am and 10pm) which will include some weekend working. Our Customer Management Centre is based in Widnes (WA8 8HS).
Our company benefits include a holiday allowance of 24 days per year (pro rata), staff discount in Argos/Habitat/Sainsbury’s (available after 3 months’ service), subsidised canteen, free parking, optional company pension scheme, relaxed dress code and the chance to work in a fun and friendly environment. As long you are willing we will invest in your potential and develop your skills for a career that fits with your own aspirations.
We know that candidates may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box. We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked. So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not apply and see how it goes?
