Argos to hire 10,000 seasonal workers this Christmas

Positions will be available across the UK with 7,400 based in England, 850 in Scotland, 475 in Wales and 300 in Northern Ireland.

The retailer said initial contracts for the store roles will be for around three months, with the potential for some roles to become permanent at the end of the season if vacancies exist.

John Walden, Argos managing director, said: “As we approach our busiest shopping period of the year, we need the extra support in our stores from enthusiastic colleagues to ensure that we continue to deliver brilliant customer service to the millions that shop with us at this time of year. We are looking for people who are customer focussed, passionate and enthusiastic to join our teams.

“Argos has been a traditional part of the UK Christmas for forty years. Our ability to deliver a choice of 29,000 products for the whole family within easy reach is why millions of people visit our stores over the festive period.”

For the third year running, Argos is partnering with TUI UK, the parent company of Thomson and First Choice, to offer summer seasonal workers with the travel company the chance to apply for roles in their local Argos store for the winter season.
