Could you keep everything together?

There have been some really exciting things going on behind the scenes here. Argos now combines an online ordering and home delivery model to rival the biggest competitors with handy collection points in Sainsbury’s stores, too.

We’re now opening a number of new Argos Local Fulfilment Centres (LFCs) nationwide to ensure that customers receive their orders when and how they prefer. But what does this mean for you?

What makes this different?

LFCs are smaller, friendly, customer-focused warehouses and if there’s one role that connects everything at the LFC, it’s this one. You’ll be responsible for all admin and know all the systems. Think of yourself as the central cog in a busy, dynamic operation.

What you’ll do

You’ll be a critical source of insight and information within the site management team and the go-to person for nearly everyone else. It’s far from just an administration job, which should suit you down to the ground.

There are some 150 colleagues on the site and you’ll plan the staff rotas so that there’s always cover when needed. You’ll also support line managers so that they complete people processes in the right way, and look after all HR files for the site. Payroll will be part of the job too, as you oversee payroll administration and work with the relevant teams to reduce any errors.

We’ll look to you to provide site data analytics, and work closely with the site management team to arrange local recruitment activity and induction programmes for new members of staff. You’ll also order supplies ranging from stationery to PPE and uniform.

What you’ll need

Organised, detailed and able to prioritise, you’ll have a talent for getting to grips with new systems quickly and be familiar with Microsoft Office. You’ll also know how to translate data into meaningful reports and summaries. Good customers service skills are going to be key — you’ll be helping customers, managers and colleagues alike whether over the phone, face to face or via email.

What’s in it for you?

These are new environments, so you’ll be joining a team at the beginning, quickly making yourself indispensable to the team. You’ll really benefit from the supportive, family feel and helpful management.

What’s more, as you’ll be part of a Sainsbury’s-owned multi-brand retailer, there are many ways you could develop your career across different parts of the business – we know great people when we find them, and will want to help you grow and achieve everything you want from your career.

Alongside this, we also offer a great range of benefits for all our colleagues, including:

  • Discount card (after 12 weeks) for you and a second user that gives you 15% off your Sainsbury’s shopping for five days every pay day, and 10% off at Sainsbury’s, Argos and Habitat throughout the year.
  • Generous holiday entitlement, maternity and paternity leave.
  • Pension – we’ll match 4-7% of your pension contributions.
  • Sainsbury’s share scheme – build up an investment at discounted rates
  • Wellbeing support – access to emotional support, counselling, legal and financial advice
  • Colleague networks – link with like-minded people to help fulfil your potential.
  • Our Cycle to Work scheme gives you the opportunity to hire a new bike and cycling equipment, whilst saving on tax and NI.
  • Special offers on gym memberships, restaurants, holidays, retail vouchers and more.
