News : 80 New Jobs as Call Centre’s Success Continues
Essex, England, UK, Jan 20, 2015 -- More than 80 jobs are set to be created after a call centre business expanded in Southend.
Ventrica has opened a new wing at its base in Tylers Avenue thanks, in part, to a boost from Southend Council.
The firm, founded by managing director Dino Forte, has gone from zero to 160 jobs in just five years and hopes to have 300 staff by the middle of 2016.
Council chief executive Rob Tinlin was at the launch of the wing, which has stunning views over Southend and the Estuary.
The council was able to provide financial help after it secured cash from the European Union.
Mr Forte said his firm was helping to advertise Southend. He said: "I spend a lot of time speaking to people outside Southend and trying to talk up Southend. It oils the wheels to get other people to take Southend seriously."
VENTRICA benefited from a grant given to Southend Council to help create jobs in the borough.
According to council leader Ron Woodley, this has already prepared the way for 185 new jobs, while safeguarding 168.
