About the job:

Brief history:

Professional People Group is working with Argos at its new state-of-the-art fulfilment centre in Reading. It's the second of its type in the country and is warehousing with a difference! Items are individually picked for customer orders, so no more bulk heavy lifting! No FLT or LLOPs in operation, make for a safer environment and you get a headset, that gives you clear directions for where to pick the items from. Our biggest sellers are toys, so vast majority light goods and therefore muscles aren't essential!

This is a brand new depot, with a nice environment. We are looking for team players that offer flexibility and a good attitude. In return, you'll get full-time hours or part-time hours (you choose), good working conditions and competitive pay.

This job:

Shift times:

As much flexibility is required from candidates as possible, in return we will guarantee a minimum of 37 1/2hrs per week. Those that are more flexible will be able to work (within reason) as many hours as desired. We are especially looking for those that can work afternoon and evening shifts.

Length of contract:

This is an ongoing contract. For those that do well, it could be a temp to perm opportunity. Professional People Group will never stand in the way of a colleague being offered a permanent position with Argos. The site has only been open for a week and three have transferred already!

Pay information:

£7.75ph Days

£8.75ph Nights

£10.00ph Overtime

Anticipated hours:

8 – 10 hours per shift


The warehouse is medium-sized, with narrow aisles. There are no forklift trucks or cages moving around. You will be trained to use a headset (voice pick) to receive instructions and you'll pick generally light goods into shopping trolleys. This is not a heavy labouring style warehouse.

All candidates must be reliable - even if the sun comes out!


It's a nice environment, it's a good team spirit and it's an ongoing job that isn't too physically demanding. This isn't a traditional supermarket type warehousing role - this is narrow aisles, shopping trolleys, headsets and pleasant conditions.

If this is what you could be looking for, apply and feel free to give us a call if you want to find out more. If it isn't what you are looking for, please feel free to give us a call or apply anyway and we can talk about our other roles available.
