Webhelp UK wins Multi-Channel Photobox Contract

One of the UKÂ’s largest customer experience companies – Webhelp UK – has won a significant new contract with PhotoBox, Europe’s leading online digital photo service.

The new contract will see over 110 jobs created at Webhelp UKÂ’s Glasgow contact centre. PhotoBox has been working with Webhelp UKÂ’s parent company, the Webhelp Group, since 2006. The UK contract win is an extension of this relationship.

The UK based team will handle European customer management services across multiple channels including inbound calls, email and webchat.

The wide scoping contract is the first multi-lingual brief that the company has secured. This will result in recruitment of customer support specialists with native language skills. In total 12 different languages will be required including French, German, Spanish, Italian and Swedish.

The deal forms an important part of Webhelp UKÂ’s strategy for growth, which includes a focus on its multi-channel capability. Recruitment will begin immediately, with a view to the contract being operational by the beginning of August. 18 current PhotoBox employees in the UK will TUPE across to Webhelp UK.

Webhelp UK, which was formerly known as Webhelp UK was acquired by Webhelp Group earlier this year, creating one of the largest independently-owned customer experience organisations in Europe, with revenues in excess of 350m Euros, 33 centres employing 16,500 people.
