Its new sister company, Providor, recently won a five-year contract with one of the big six energy companies to provide smart meter services. Orchard Energy will deliver the UK-wide smart meter telesales services from its new call centre based at Orchard House in Elland.
Orchard’s remit will be to contact customers and arrange for an engineer to come and install smart meters in their homes.
The call centre has already created 30 jobs for the local area and Orchard Energy is currently in the process of recruiting to fill those roles. Its long-term plan is to establish a 60-strong team that will deliver smart meter telesales services nationwide for the next five years.
Orchard Energy’s managing director, Gareth Henderson, said: "This is a big move for Orchard Energy. We have a strong track record in telesales, and to be able to establish the new call centre at our head office will enable us to showcase our telesales expertise."
