News : PPI Claims Company Set to Create 80 New Jobs in Newcastle
Newcastle, UK, Sept 20, 2016 -- Around 80 new jobs are to be created at a Newcastle company specialising in mis-sold payment protection insurance.
Allay, which currently employs 20 call centre staff at its headquarters on Trafalgar Street , is looking to boost its Newcastle team on the back of growing demand for its services.
The new jobs will mean Allay has a total of 240 people working across its centres in Newcastle, the North West and Wales.
The company is working with Solutions Recruitment to identify and train suitable candidates to work on the PPI side of its business, which is expected to see strong growth due to a June 2019 deadline being proposed for people submitting such complaints.
Allay – whose owners have been working in the PPI field since 2007 - has also expanded into other claims areas, including flight delays, mis-sold solar panels and alarm systems, packaged bank accounts, and timeshare and holiday club membership.
Managing director Steven Bell said: "Our business is growing at a fast pace, and we need to boost our call centre workforce to cope with the additional demand and ensure we continue to deliver an excellent service.
"Eighty staff is a lot of new roles to fill, and Allay is pleased to be working with Solutions Recruitment to this end. They are an experienced company in this field, a fellow Newcastle-based business, and have an impressive record for recruiting professional and reliable people from this region.
"Here at Allay we try and work with as many North East businesses as we can."
With regards to the new jobs drive, Mr Bell added: "It will be a great opportunity for people to develop their career, learn new skills, and work for a dynamic and progressive North East-based company.
"It is fantastic news that Allay is growing the compensation side of the business, and as a result can both cement its position as a significant employer in Newcastle and increase its presence in this area.
"This announcement is confirmation of our commitment to the region, and by working in partnership with fellow North East companies like Solutions Recruitment wherever possible, to enhance this area’s reputation for excellence and innovation."
