A UK contact and customer service firm is creating 250 new jobs in Belfast.

Intelling Ltd has already hired 45 staff for the firm's base here.

Recruitment started earlier this year at a temporary facility to allow Intelling Ltd to "meet customer demand".

As a result, 45 of the new jobs, which include management, supervisors, sales positions, are already in place.

The firm works with a number of big clients including TalkTalk and O2 - providing customer service and direct marketing.

Manchester-based Intelling has grown to a 250-strong workforce in the space of just three years.

This new Belfast base will double its entire workforce.

The jobs will have an average salary of £16,000 a year.

Intelling's hil Morgan, CEO of Intelling Ltd, said: “Establishing this contact centre in Northern Ireland marks a major investment in the development of our business. Invest NI has assisted us in bringing these plans to fruition.

“One of Intelling’s key strengths is our ethos on staff training to drive productivity and grow the business.

"Our new Belfast centre gives us access to a new talent pool and we plan to invest over £800,000 in skills, including management and leadership development, so that we have the capability required to take advantage of new opportunities."
