Up to 400 new jobs are being created in Bedford as a major energy company expands its customer service department.
E.ON will be recruited new staff at its Caxton Road office during the next 12 months.
E.ON, one of the UK’s largest energy suppliers, is looking to recruit people from Bedford and the surrounding areas into permanent, part-time and full-time customer service positions.
Bedford and Kempston MP Richard Fuller said: “I am delighted E.ON has decided to double its workforce in Bedford by creating up to 400 new permanent jobs.
“Since 2010, unemployment in Bedford has fallen by nearly half but there is more to do. E.ON has been a large employer in Bedford for many years and I am pleased that they are continuing their investment in Bedford and creating more new jobs.”
He added: “This is a vote of confidence in Bedford as a great place to do business.”
Successful candidates will join 350 colleagues already based at the Bedford site to help respond to and identify solutions for customers’ issues while working within a highly valued team to deliver a genuinely helpful service.
For the majority of these roles, applicants aren’t required to have previous customer service experience or specific qualifications.
Successful candidates will receive a formal induction and a 14 week period of training on a job development plan.
