Telecoms firm creates 120 jobs in Watford

Telecoms firm, Direct Save, will bring 120 jobs to the Watford area as it opens a new business centre for customer care, administration and sales.

The company, which has been running since 2003, will more than double its workforce over the next year.

Direct Save is a telephone service provider spun out of Utilities UK, which aims to provide low cost services and reduce telecom bills for UK families.

Stavros Tsolakis, the Chief Executive of the business said: “Despite the general economic environment remaining challenging, our business has expanded significantly over the past 12 months and this increased workforce will help build further market share.

“It’s all very well winning new business, but you have to have a sustainable business model to retain new and existing customers.

“Our footprint in the UK’s home phone and broadband sector is all about achieving the most robust and sustainable operating model for the long-term and offering customers the best deals available.”

Conservative MP for Watford, Richard Harrington, commented on Direct Save’s announcement: “It is innovative companies such as Direct Save which are creating local job opportunities that are vital to both local and national recovery and the British economy as a whole.”
