Direct Save Telecom has announced the opening of a new office in Birmingham which will create 150 jobs. The new office, which will be located in the McLaren Building in the city centre, will initially house 20 new sales staff, with this number increasing to 150 by the summer of 2015.
Direct Save Telecom’s new Birmingham office will be managed by Adam Logie, from Birmingham, who has 16 years of corporate telecoms experience. Adam, who has strong sales and management skills, has spent the last two months training at Direct Save’s Watford head office. He is now tasked with building his own team and increasing sales.
He explains: “I am excited to join the Direct Save Telecom team and to be in charge of opening the new Birmingham office. I see this as a watershed moment for Direct Save in terms of expansion and building our customer base. Birmingham and the surrounding area represents a massive catchment area, which means this is a huge opportunity for increased sales and growth. As with everything the product is key and we are committed to providing the best value deals possible coupled with an unparalleled level of UK based customer service, which is where the big four Telco’s can sometimes be ambiguous.”
The opening of the Birmingham office marks further expansion for Direct Save, after it successfully opened two new offices in Croydon and Slough last year. The continued growth is a direct result of the low-cost Telco launching its ‘cheapest in the UK’ £1.95 unlimited broadband deal.
“This expansion has been in the pipeline for some time,” explains Stavros Tsolakis, CEO of Direct Save Telecom. “We chose Birmingham as we see it as England’s second city with an excellent catchment area that fits exactly with our target demographic.
He adds: “We are committed to offering the best possible deals in the UK for home phone and unlimited broadband, and now also Fibre To The Home. We see the opening of the Birmingham office as a key development in increasing brand awareness, and ultimately sales, throughout the UK.”
