TV giant opens another call centre
SKY TV is to open another call centre, employing 350 people, in City Walk, Leeds, early next year.
It says that the site will help meet demand for its TV, broadband and home phone services.
Dave Rumble, sales director (pictured), said: “We looked at a number of sites across the UK but we've chosen Leeds because it's a vibrant city with a strong track record in the contact centre sector and excellent transport links.”
Sky claims nearly 9m subscribers in the UK and has 14,500 staff in its other call centres, mostly in Dunfermline and Livingstone. It already has 250 call centre employees in Yorkshire. They are based in Harrogate and handle calls for Sky Bet and Football365.com.
