Argos creating new digital roles as London Hub opens for business

Digital retailer Argos has opened an office in the heart of London with a focus on creating more agile and flexible ways of working and attracting new talent into the business. The office will also be used as a satellite for teams involved in the firm’s major infrastructure projects and is convenient for access to key partners and start-up communities.

Located above the store in Vauxhall Bridge Road and close to Victoria Station, roles currently being recruited include Product Managers, Development Managers, Digital Designers and Testers. Developers are also being sought and further roles will be recruited over the coming months.

Argos Digital Director, Bertrand Bodson said: “For us, this is about creating a space for collaboration and innovation. We want to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit I know to be at the heart of our business and which has meant that nearly 50% of our business now originates in a digital channel.

“We want to build on the successes we have already seen with digital initiatives such as Blippar and Digital Christmas Gift Guide and take that further. Building our agile capability is a strong boost to Argos’ transformation plans, allowing us to bring digital solutions to the market faster and in a more timely and relevant way.

Designed in partnership with the team in Habitat, the new office officially opened on 6 January, and projects are already underway.

Bodson continues “Having a base in the heart of one of the world’s leading centres of technical innovation will help us add to the great team we already have and we are keen to hear from anyone interested in joining us on this exciting journey.”
