Positions include telemarketing, field sales, broadband sales, customer service advisors, credit control, retention advisors and collection advisors.
Unicom operations director Chris Earle (pictured) said: “Our mobile phone product launch has gone exceptionally well, far better than expected. To ensure we continue to deliver the excellent service our business customers have come to expect we are recruiting for all our key departments such as sales, customer service and customer relations.”
