New Altice call centre creates 200 jobs

French telecommunications giant Altice is creating around 200 jobs for a call centre opening in Oliveira do Hospital, Coimbra on Monday (October 3).

The centre will start with 50 workers but plans are to hire around 150 more in the next 18 months.

Mayor José Carlos Alexandrino says the project is “essential” to offer more jobs to local youngsters and keep them from seeking employment elsewhere.
