JOB-hunters in South Tyneside are being offered the chance of some seasonal work by a leading high street retailer.
Argos has 11 jobs available across the firm’s 11 stores, which include the South Shields shop in Russell Street, and in Bede Precinct, in the Jarrow Viking Centre.
The company wants the extra workers in the run-up to Christmas.
Initial contracts are for about three months, while some roles could become permanent at the end of the season.
New workers will receive in-house training and a 10 per cent staff discount at Argos and 20 per cent at its sister company, Homebase.
John Walden, the managing director of Argos, said: “We are looking for people who are customer-focused, passionate and enthusiastic to join our teams.”
The job roles will be customer advisors helping customers on the shop floor and supporting on the tills, and delivery assistants, who will work in the store’s stock room.
