News : Scottish Gas to Create 70 New Posts in Christmas Jobs Boost
Dec 10, 2014 -- Scottish Gas is to hire 70 new workers in a jobs boost at one of its bases.
The firm has ramped up services to help customers across Scotland, as it predicts a ten per cent increase in call-outs compared with the same time last year.
To get ready for winter, the company has employed 230 more staff at contact centres across Britain.
This includes 70 new jobs at its Uddingston contact centre, in Lanarkshire, which employs around 1100 staff.
Almost 20,000 extra calls are expected across Britain this week, a ten percent rise compared to the same time last year.
Kevin Roxburgh, managing director at Scottish Gas, said: "It is always our top priority to keep customers’ homes warm, and boilers and home appliances working during winter.
"As Scotland prepares for a cold snap in, our engineers are ready to reach customers’ homes quickly if anything goes wrong.
"Every winter we increase the number of people in our contact centre teams and they are also ready to help customers who may be calling us with problems."
