‘404, call centre not found’:
That “career” in a call centre might last for about as long as it takes an average caller to get through. Calls answered by software are very much nearer reality these days. It seems the UK industry is set to be squeezed to death between software and shipping jobs overseas. Not good news for places which have relied on call centres to “fill the gap” left by the decline of British manufacturing & heavy-industries. Even the swishier e-commerce and net jobs are not immune to being shipped overseas.
