Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK, Sept, 2017 -- The Isle of Wight's new call centre, which will create 600 jobs, has opened for business.
Based in Cowes, the Ascensos call centre (Monday) welcomed its first intake of 60 staff.
Following two weeks of training at the new facility, they have been busy handling phone calls for long standing Ascensos client JD Sports — an occasion they celebrated by dressing in sportswear.
Ascensos’ operations director on the Isle of Wight, Lyle McLean said: "This is a significant day for our new Isle of Wight operation and we were delighted that the first members of our new team decided to enter into the spirit by adopting a sporting theme for the day.
"This is our first intake of team members and at full strength, we plan to have created 600 jobs on the Isle of Wight."
