The call centre will primarily carry out outbound sales calls for ScottishPower and is being opened as part of Ago Outsourcing’s national expansion plans.
Last year the company announced it was creating over 700 jobs across their Glasgow and Newcastle sites, and are now looking to open further call centre’s around the country, with Manchester being the next location on their list.
Stephen Rafferty, Chief Operations Officer at Ago Outsourcing, said: “We already have a large presence in Scotland and Newcastle and have very aggressive plans to continue the growth throughout the UK. Manchester has always been a prime location for contact centres and after considering a few locations we agreed Manchester would be the perfect venue for our next centre.”
The majority of the positions will be sales roles, however positions will also be created within the back office Operations, Quality & Compliance, Customer Service, HR, Team Management and Administration.
Kris McGenily, Chief Executive Officer said “I’m looking forward to bringing Ago to the people of Manchester, and letting them see what a state of the art sales contact centre should look like, it’s exciting for all of us and I’m sure this will be an excellent addition to our portfolio.”
The company added that the region boasted a talented workforce and good transport links.
