South Shields call centre back in use

Former Garland’s building sees new occupiers

Good to note that (without a lot of publicity) the former CJ Garland’s call centre on Long Row, South Shields is now in the process of firing up its telephone lines again, as a local “outsourcing operation” has moved from the old Co-op building in Jarrow to occupy part of the controversial building behind River Drive. The company has a number of accounts and plans to increase its account handling capacity and “seats” with the move to larger premises.

It is unlikely that they will require the whole of the former CJ Garlands site, and others may well be invited to occupy other parts of the building as landlords increase their urgency to see some returns in a market still not fully affected by the economic downturn.

One hopes that any levels of local protest will be far quieter than previously heard when Garland’s moved into the riverside site, having got used to neighbours once I’m sure they can do it again, after all the chance to create new jobs in South Tyneside must surely be a goal for most people?
