Tesco brings job opportunities to Dundee

Tesco brings job opportunities to Dundee A supermarket giant is bringing 300 jobs to Dundee, it has been reported.

Tesco is taking on the new staff to man an expansion of its call centre in Scotland's fourth-largest city.

Its customer service centre in the Scottish city dealt with more than ten million calls last year – a number that is expected to increase this year by nearly three-quarters (70 per cent) to 17 million, according to the BBC.

This is good news for students studying in the city as they could apply for one of the jobs that has been opened up to help support their studies.

Ian Naylor, head of the supermarket's customer service centres, said: "We are very pleased to announce a substantial number of new customer service jobs here at Dundee.

"As our business continues to grow, so do the standards of service our customers expect from us.

"We operate in a very demanding and fast-paced environment and will look to recruit staff of the highest calibre from the Dundee community and beyond."

Jim McGovern, MP for Dundee West, said that after the firm had axed "a number of jobs" in the city last year, the announcement was "a great boost" and he hopes that Tesco continues to be such a significant employer.

Tesco is the largest British retailer by both global sales and domestic market share.
