A CALL centre is to be refurbished at a cost of £1.4 million.

Domestic and General, an appliance and repair specialist, employs more than 730 staff at the office in Queen Square, Brighton.

D&G is one of the city’s biggest private sector employers.

Its investment in Brighton follows a recent refurbishment of the company’s Nottingham call centre, which was completed earlier this year.

Alex Marples, site director, said: “We are delighted to be investing in our people and in Brighton.

“Our call centre employees across the country lie at the heart of our plan to put customers first. So investing in the quality of their working environment is critical.

“We take great pride in being one of the largest employers in Brighton and look forward to opening our doors to more local talent as we grow our business.”

Earlier this year, more than 100 staff hosted a Sport Relief fundraiser. It was the 12th consecutive year D&G’s team had voluntarily contributed.
