The Fundamentals of the Retail Sector

The retail sector is more than the sharp end of shop floor sales – the functions of the supporting operation are wide and varying, and can offer an exciting pace that suits former military personnel well.

In this webinar we outline the many and varied functions of the sector with Chris Watters, Strategic Development Manager at Argos. With our very own Gordon Ross, Chris will be available to address any questions you may have on the sector.

After graduating in International Politics and Strategic Studies from the University of Wales, Chris spent a placement year in FMCG with brewer AB InBev before joining the Royal Navy as an Officer. Following a 3 year career, culminating with a placement at the Royal Navy Presentation Team, he successfully transitioned into retail, joining Argos in 2011. Since joining Argos, Chris has worked in Commercial Development, directing highly analytical teams to deliver business insight and managing continual process improvement across the broader commercial function. Since the launch of Argos’ Transformation to a Digital Retail Leader, he has been leading the evolution of pricing strategy and the implementation of market-leading dynamic trading tools.
