A CALL centre in Suva is expected to create more than 150 job opportunities in Fiji.

Supercharged Energy Fiji – an energy company for customers based in New Zealand and Australia – operates with 38 staff members in their call centre.

Supercharged Energy Fiji director of Operations Sales and Marketing John Charles Harrop said they focused most of their business towards the commercial sector of New Zealand and Australia.

He said the call centre that started four weeks ago was mostly an outbound operation, however, they did receive inbound calls which they were hoping would increase in the next few months.

“We speak to 100s of businesses every week between both countries and we put forward a package for them to save money on their electricity bill by using renewable energy,” said Mr Harrop.

The call centre employs people based on their preference to either work full time or part time.

The company was founded by Mr Harrop’s business partner John Telfer and they had invested more than $700,000 into the call centre in Fiji.
