News : More Jobs Created at New Orchard Energy Call Centre
Elland, UK, Aug 22, 2016 -- A new call centre launched just a month ago by an energy broker is already seeking more staff.
Orchard Energy, which opened the call centre creating 30 jobs at its head office in Elland in July, is looking to recruit more staff to meet rising demand for smart meters in homes.
The call centre is part of a five-year contract won by Orchard Energy’s sister company, Providor, to provide smart meter telesales services for one of the Big Six energy companies. Orchard Energy and Providor are both part of the Lakehouse Group.
The centre created 30 local jobs when it launched last month and expects to double that to 60 to accommodate the growing interest nationwide in smart meters in the home.
Orchard Energy operations director said Colette Costello said: "The success of the call centre in its first month is phenomenal. Despite it being a new team, working with new systems and techniques, all staff have exceeded our expectations.
Orchard said the centre operated flexible hours and shift work, making it suitable for jobhunters ranging from students to stay at home parents looking for a few hours’ work a week.
