Our Group Procurement team is constantly on the lookout for ways to make our operation more cost effective, and currently have many suppliers and service providers on their books. These companies supply everything from paperclips to pallet trucks, and from paper for the Argos catalogue to the lorries that deliver to our customers' homes.
If you think you could help us in our quest to be ever more cost effective, please contact our Group Procurement team.
