70 new call-centre job opportunities at Kwik Fit Insurance in Lanarkshire

Kwik Fit Insurance is to recruit for 70 people to take up careers at its Uddingston call centre.

Positions available include outbound sales and customer service jobs, as well as internet sales roles to support the company's growing online business. A number of positions are also available in Kwik Fit Financial Services subsidiary, The Green Insurance Company, which offsets its customers' motoring carbon emissions.
Successful candidates will benefit from a thorough training programme, beginning with a six-week classroom induction, followed by eight weeks on the call-centre floor in the company's graduation bay, where they will be introduced to speaking to customers.
At the end of the training programme, new recruits are rewarded with a graduation ceremony hosted in the call centre, in which the 1,000-strong staff team takes part.

Company benefits include an award-winning staff bistro, complete with its own Costa coffee shop, a chill-out zone with a juice bar, pool tables, internet access and a media wall comprising a PS3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360. Recruits can also work towards their own company cars after six months with the business.
Brendan Devine, Kwik Fit Financial Services group managing director, said: "We want people to enjoy their time at work, and we think we have created a great environment where they can do that. There's a great team spirit in here that is absolutely crucial in helping us achieve our business objectives.
