"Being selected to bid for the Vodafone work gave the team the opportunity to showcase our culture and values.
"I’m very proud of ResQ’s team as they gave a great impression of our business during the Vodafone visits. The people and the values clearly struck a chord with the Vodafone team as we were ultimately awarded the contract.
"Vodafone joins us at a very exciting time in our evolution and we look forward to working with them in partnership over the coming years."
The company, which also has a branch in Seaham, County Durham, currently employs almost 600 people in Hull.
The new deal with Vodafone will take that number to around 800.
Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for city economy at Hull City Council, said: "This is a huge achievement for ResQ, which is a considerable Hull business.
"It reinforces Hull’s place on the map as a place where great things happen and great people live and work. ResQ has been part of the local community in Hull for over 12 years now and is recognised as a key business and employer in the city.
"Attracting Vodafone to Hull demonstrates ResQ’s pedigree in the call centre industry, and is testament to all the good work that they do."
Neil Blagden, Vodafone UK’s director of digital & commercial operations, said: "We are delighted to announce our new partnership with ResQ and look forward to working more closely with them.
"In March 2017, we announced a UK-wide programme to recruit around 2,000 new UK customer services roles. The agreement with ResQ is another step in our commitment to providing our customers with the best possible service."
