Call Britannia calls for companies to outsource and help tackle long term unemployment in Croydon Thursday 8 September 2011 PDF Print we are very keen to encourage local and national businesses to speak to us about our outsourcing services As the Government and contractors rally to rebuild Croydon, after being one of the worst affected areas by the rioting, Call Britannnia’s Chair encourages businesses to consider its call centre for outsourcing. Call Britannia, a social enterprise call centre business, employs long term unemployed people in its 150 seat operation in Croydon. Its plans are to replicate the Croydon operation in other similar cities and equip people with the training and skills to enable them to find sustainable employment. Currently there are 60 agents who are trained and experienced and having been long term unemployed it is a workforce with absolute passion and commitment to achieving high customer service expectations. Call Britannia clients have included Kidney Research UK, Home Serve and Top Table. Croydon has a population of over 340,000 and has seen a 70% increase since 1997 in the number of people who have been unemployed for more than a year.
