News : 600 Jobs Saved as Call Centre Stays in Sheffield
Sheffield, UK, June 2, 2016 -- Six hundred Sheffield jobs have been safeguarded after a call centre stayed in the city due to the "quality and potential" of staff.
French firm WebHelp won the race to take over two huge contracts from Serco - with retailers Freemans Grattan Holdings and BrightHouse.
A WebHelp spokeswoman said all parties were committed to keeping the operation in the city due to the staff.
The call centre is in a new building at 1 Amberley Street, Attercliffe, near the English Institute of Sport. WebHelp has taken a six-year lease on the building.
The spokeswoman said the aim was to invest in staff through training and expand by winning contracts.
She added: "We are quite fussy about the contracts we take. This is a good fit and we are excited by the potential of the people in Sheffield and our hope is it will bring in more business."
