A Manvers-based customer services company has created 10 new opportunities for Dearne jobseekers.
Webhelp UK has created the Customer Experience Advisor roles targeted towards young people as part of its natiowide skills initiatives.
Webhelp’s Customer Experience Academy (CEA) was designed to bring career opportunities to young unemployed people, within the communities it operates in, who are finding it difficult to reach the first step on the career ladder.
Claire Croden, Head of Learning Innovation for Webhelp UK, said:
“Webhelp’s Customer Experience Academy has gone from strength to strength since launching our pilot scheme earlier this year. Phase two of the initiative has attracted over 40 new talented colleagues, who have already started a modern apprenticeship at our sites throughout the UK.
“Youth unemployment is a massive issue and more still needs to be done to create job opportunities. It’s great to be getting involved and playing our part in bringing employment to a part of our society which desperately needs it.
“I’m very proud that we’ve been able to turn the pilot Customer Experience Academy project into a nationwide campaign.”
The new employees are employed full time by Webhelp UK, on standard terms and conditions and supported through their new job on a 12-month apprenticeship gaining a recognised customer service qualification.
