About the retail business
Based in Milton Keynes, Argos is the UK’s largest general merchandise retailer. Quite an achievement in such a competitive sector.
Part of Home Retail Group, the UK’s leading home and general merchandise retailer comprising Argos and Homebase, we are part of the FTSE 100 and completely unique in what we do – pioneering new levels of retail choice, value and convenience.
For graduates completing the Argos Graduate Leadership Programme, that opens up even broader possibilities for continued career development in a retail business.
Make no mistake; the retail business is big business, even in today’s economic climate.
No less than 9% of all enterprises in the UK are retailers, and more than a third of all consumer spending goes through shops. Taken as a whole, the retail sector generates 8% of the UK’s Gross Domestic Product.
As an employer, the retail industry has a similar impact, with jobs for 2.9 million people, which equates to 1 in 9 of the total UK workforce.
Small wonder that the world at large looks to retail, and particularly Argos, for its future business leaders.
