ARGOS are hunting for 86 new recruits for its customer management team in Widnes on the run-up to Christmas.

The new team members will be responsible for delivering the 'best' service for customers during Argos' busiest times of the year - Black Friday and the festive period.

Working as the first point of contact for millions of customers across brands such as Argos, Habitat and Sainsbury's Tu clothing ranges, employees will be responding to queries about products, orders and deliveries through the online LiveChat and via social media.

All new recruits will receive comprehensive training.

Chris Stroud, director of customer management centres at Argos, said: “Our new recruits will be pivotal in ensuring that our service in the build up to Black Friday and Christmas is as helpful and efficient as it is throughout the rest of the year.

“Providing great customer service is at the heart of what we do at Argos and that’s why we’re looking for 86 helpful and enthusiastic people to join our Widnes team to deliver our fantastic service at the most exciting and busiest time of the year.

"The work is fast-paced, varied and rewarding with the potential to learn a whole set of new skills.”

Colleagues will be contracted full time or part time for up to six months and will benefit from competitive hourly rates and a fun and friendly team culture in addition to 23 days paid holiday (pro rata) and enrolment on to the company pension scheme.

Additional benefits include company discount at Sainsbury’s, Argos and Habitat after 12 weeks service and free parking.
