News : Provident Financial Plans Space for Extra Staff in Bradford
Bradford, UK, Feb 24, 2016 -- Bradford-based lender Provident Financial is looking to add extra call centre space at its city centre head office as its operations expand.
Chief executive Peter Crook said the company would seek planning permission to develop land and an extension to the former TJ Hughes building which it bought in 2013 and set aside for future development.
The move has been driven by growth in its Satsuma short-term loans business and the glo guarantor-backed lending which is being rolled out following trials last year.
An unspecified number of call centre staff for the two expanding businesses will be recruited and based in the new area and add to the 1,00-strong Provident Group workforce at its Godwin Street headquarters.
Work to slim down and reposition the Consumer |Credit Division, which includes Provident's traditional home lending operation, was completed. A move from paper-based functions to laptops and smart phones led to 340 job cuts, including 80 in Bradford.
