Firstsource call centre staff to keep their jobs

Call centre workers on Teesside who were given notice of redundancy have been told their jobs are safe.

About 500 Firstsource staff across Thornaby and Middlesbrough were placed at risk in October because of a decline in business.

But the firm has now signed a new 12-month contract with an existing client which has secured the positions.

A spokeswoman said the company had always intended to find new work for those affected.
