Graduate Job sector Reports
A call centre in South Shields is to create 100 jobs, which could be good news for those looking for temporary jobs and graduate jobs.
The new opportunities are just the first phase of Garlands Call Centres' recruitment drive that will see 1,000 jobs created in the north-east area.
Chey Garland, the firm's chief executive, said: "It gives us enormous pleasure to announce the first phase of our recruitment activities in South Shields. We will be bringing opportunities for local people to work for blue chip organisations and develop their careers in the customer service industry."
Another 3,000 jobs will be created over the next three years by the firm, which already employs 3,200 workers in the region.
Construction of a new call centre is expected to be completed later this year.
Garlands, which includes Vodafone among its clients, was originally launched in 1980 as a debt collection business.
