Manchester has a new resident as we open our Digital Hub in the heart of the city.

Back to articles

Home to the Industrial Revolution and the world’s first ‘Stored Programme’ Computer, Manchester has a history of defining the modern world. Fast forward to present day, with its booming digital market and staggering investment, Manchester once again stands at the forefront of UK innovation. The perfect setting for our new Digital HQ.

Who We Are:

We challenge the norm because we genuinely care more about our customers. We do things differently and, although most of our customer interaction is carried out online, our award winning care and digital user experience makes us memorable – for all the right reasons. The world needs inventiveness and a desire to do things better, to do things the “AO Way”, which is why we are rewriting the rule book on customer experience.

Right now our digital hub houses over 50 multimedia experts and I.T specialists, with that number set to grow throughout 2017. But whilst our digital home is still brand new, our commitment to being a market leader in technical innovation is in our DNA.

Over the past 15 years we’ve invested heavily in creative technology. We give our teams the tools and autonomy to hone their craft and push beyond conventional limits, raising the bar in electrical retail. With over 20 sites in the UK and Europe, ranging from digital hubs to distribution centres, our mission is to become the Best European Electrical Retailer.

We offer everything you could possibly need to help develop your skills and forge a successful career (it’s no wonder we were named ‘Retail Week’ Employer of the Year in 2015).

Does this sound like your kind of environment? Perhaps you could find a home here too?

Then what are you waiting for? Join the next Manchester revolution at our Riverside Digital Hub.
