Tuesday 25 September 2012
Stores giant Argos is to create 12,000 temporary jobs ion the run-up to the busy Christmas shopping period.
The posts will mainly last for three months, spread across the 740 Argos stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland, with the potential for a permanent contract if vacancies arise.
The company, which created a similar number of seasonal jobs last year, said the new recruits will benefit from an immediate 10 per cent staff discount.
John Walden, managing director of Argos, said: "Christmas is our busiest period of the year so we always need extra help in our stores to ensure we can deliver great service to the millions of customers who shop with us at this time."
