Contact centre Go-Centric has more than 1,000 employees following a rapid expansion in its workforce.

The outsourcer has grown from 50 workers in three years to more than 1,000 and is on course for continued expansion

The firm based in Glasgow, whose private sector clients include fashion retailers, has played a key role helping deliver vital services to governments.

A labour market survey of new employees has revealed that 35% were previously out of work.

The firm has also become an accredited living wage employer and is in the process of being ‘youth verified’ in recognition of its commitment to young workers.

David Harper, chair of go-centric, said:

“Over the past three years, everyone at go-centric has worked exceptionally hard to grow the business at such a rapid pace, being guided by our values of respect, integrity and commitment.

“I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved, which is testament to the hard-work and dedication of all our employees.”
