EE's brings back customer support jobs to UK

Friday 13 January 2017 | 16:49 CET | News
EE announced that all of its EE pay monthly, pay as you go, broadband and TV customer service calls are now being answered by customer service staff in the UK and Ireland. The operator said this move is in line with recent similar actions that are part of its plan to become number one for service in the UK mobile industry. As part of the move, EE created over 1,000 new jobs in the UK and Ireland across its North Tyneside, Darlington, Plymouth and Merthyr Tydfil sites. Prior to this, a small part of the operator's customer support staff were in Philippines and India.
