  • Offshore call centre Last updated by Sharon: 25-Jan-2017

    I used to work in a call centre here in the UK. I lost my job a year ago and I have been unable to get a new one. It looks like a lot of the call centres have been moved abroad. I don't know about you but I don't think the service is the same!

    • My experience is the same as yours, and my opinion too. There's nothing like having similar cultural references when it comes to communicating to convince of smthg or to solve a problem. This is not saying anything against the people in call centres offshore, they are great professionals, I have no doubt, but it's like somebody living in a hot climate giving advice on gardening to someone living in a cold climate. It's not that they cannot give good advice, but the likelihood is that someone from a colder climate will have more first hand experience and information, that's all.
