Spark Response Call Center Instigates Recruitment Spree for 170 Christmas Staff


Recently, the premium UK contact center Spark Response has opened its gates for hiring 170 provisional employees for supervising the Christmas sprint.

Spark Response, with a trendy fleet of products and companies like Soap and Glory, Well Mount, FitFlop, Micro Scooters and Toys R Us, will receive a momentous acceleration in demand now. Subsequently, to manage their massive work load and to ensure purchase orders are processed before the arrival of Christmas, the contact center has advertised its need for additional assistance, with precisely 170 employees to fill the vacancy.   

Edward Duffy, spokes person for Spark Response, said that with the arrival of the Christmas season, several of its customers receive a gigantic upsurge in their sales pipeline, and as a result, they must also expand their workforce and resources. He added that they must ensure that they are capable of handling this massive expectation from its clients, and hence it shall be commencing the hiring process over the coming weeks.

With the new hiring process the total workforce of this Gateshead based contact center will increase to 300.

Duffy further added that the new vacancies that intend to fill are temporary. He explained that as they are a budding organization, they are always seeking good employees to fortify their team. He went on to add that applicants should weigh it as an ideal opportunity to make a lasting impression, for any future developments as they could soon be made as permanent staff.
