and much, much more
A great business depends on great people and we believe our colleagues are amongst the best, so if you're looking for a dynamic career or simply a job which suits your lifestyle, let us know.
With three of the UK's best-known retail brands and around 1,100 stores, we can offer a variety of roles in a great many locations, so whether you're looking for a part-time seasonal position, a graduate role or a management career, we can help.
Many people have forged great careers with Home Retail Group after starting as a Christmas temp in one of our stores, whilst others have built upon their experience from other organisations to enhance their careers through us.
Our strong, but different retail brands, include store, distribution centre, customer contact centre and centralised office function opportunities; so a job which starts in any one of these brands could flourish into a career that embraces all three - Argos, Homebase and Home Retail Group.
So, what's it like working in Home Retail Group? Quite frankly, it's what you make it! We always look for dynamic, energetic and customer-oriented people who share our values. We take pride in what we do and how we do it. Our values are based around:
We're a fast moving organisation and are always seeking new or improved ways to help customers shop with us. Retailing is a very competitive business, but with a 10% share of the UK general merchandise market, we're clear leaders. We think you'd enjoy working with us and we could help each other to secure a promising and fulfilling future.
Wherever possible, we like to promote from within, so we help our colleagues develop the skills they joined us with. Our engaging and varied training and development programmes, supported by clearly defined progression plans, means we can provide varied and fulfilling careers.
As a leading employer, we're committed to offering our colleagues a competitive and comprehensive employment package, including not only basic salary, but a range of employment benefits.
We use our market position and buying power to negotiate special offers with leading high street names to help our colleagues' money stretch that little bit further. From travel discounts to gym membership, there should be a deal to suit you.
All permanent colleagues are entitled to 10% discount in Argos, 20% discount in Homebase stores and 30% discount in stand alone Habitat stores, and can participate in our Save As You Earn scheme to save money and own shares in Home Retail Group.
We take pride in what we do and how we do it and have a common approach to how we do things across the Group. We are looking for people with initiative and drive, a passion for customer service and a 'can do' attitude...so if you think you have these qualities, we'd like you to join our team.
We have a clear scale advantage, derived from a well-invested infrastructure which has been built up over a period of many years. We invest in multi-channel iniativies, expand choice and develop both product ranges and services, so we continue to shape the future of shopping for our customers.
Despite the current economic environment, we have maintained our market share and leadership position. This stability makes us an attractive proposition for people seeking a career with one of the UK's leading retailers.
