EE announces jobs boost for south Wales
Superfast mobile broadband provider EE is to create up to 200 new customer service and sales jobs at its contact centre in Merthyr Tydfil, south Wales.

The move bolsters the company's position as the town's largest single employer and also delivers an economic boost to the area, with recent figures from the Office for National Statistics showing that almost 47,000 people aged between 16 and 24 in Wales are out of work.

Across the UK, EE is planning to take on a total of 300 new customer service staff, with roles also being created in Darlington and North Tyneside. Successful applicants are expected to be helping customers within a matter of weeks.

The announcement has been welcomed by Huw Lewis, Member of the National Assembly for Wales and Minister for Education, who described the move as "a sign of the confidence EE rightly has in its Merthyr workforce".

Francoise Clemes, EE's Chief of Customer Service, added: "The increase in employees at our customer centres reinforces our commitment to providing the best service possible to all EE customers."
