We at Argos are looking for a Senior Copywriter - UX Digital

Did you know Argos is the largest UK based online retailer?

With over 60% of transactions going through our website and apps, and 70% of those on mobile devices, Argos is truly a digital first retailer.

Most people in the UK have shopped with us at some point. And most of them will have used one of our digital channels - whether it's Argos.co.uk, our award-winning apps or the custom-designed tablets in our digital stores. Working at Argos, you'll be helping millions of people to get what they want, when they want it... and hopefully raise a smile in the process.

We may be big on the outside... but on the inside we've worked hard to create a culture that feels just like a start-up. If you work here, you'll get the best of both worlds.

So why should you work for us?

Agile working. Everyone says they do agile... but we do it the proper way. That means you'll work to a roadmap but we flex and change direction as needed. If it's right for our customers, it's right for our business.

Tangible results. You'll get stuff live - a lot. Last year we launched 329 new features on our digital channels. That's an average of 1 feature per working day.

Talented teams. We only hire the best - everyone here is an expert in their discipline. So you can trust and learn from them... and we're getting stronger every day.

Co-located colleagues. To be genuinely collaborative, we all sit together: PMs, UXAs, UIs, Copywriters, UXR... and yes, our Devs & QAs are on site too!

New technology. We're truly tech-driven. That's why we're already investing in future tech trends like AR, conversational commerce, machine learning and AI.

Real ownership. You're the driving force behind your area. And you'll have just the right balance of autonomy and support to make it a success.
