Vodafone Australia will continue to offer call centre services from Tasmania with the opening of a $12 million facility in Hobart.

The telco has signed a 12-year lease on the new building. Development of the site began in November 2013.

Vodafone had been operating a call centre in Kingston, Hobart for 16 years. By December 2015, more than 1000 staff will be based at the new facility as workers from the Kingston building are re-located.

According to Vodafone Australia CEO Inaki Berroeta, the company is one of the state’s biggest private employers and contributes tens of millions of dollars a year to the Tasmanian economy.

“Not only are we building a customer care centre, we’re also building diverse, highly skilled, high-tech jobs,” he said in a statement.
