The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has entered into a renewed contract for call centres services with Capita until 2022.
Capita will continue to provide the RSPCA’s national contact centre, handling more than a million calls each year, providing support for animal cruelty incidents of which 149,000 were investigated in 2016.
“We’re looking forward to continuing our great work for the RSPCA over the next five years, which will see our relationship with the organisation span nearly 20 years,” commented Mike Barnard, executive director, Capita Customer Management.
Barnard added: “Our team is responsible for operating the inbound national cruelty service which includes managing multiple channels including calls for advice and online queries.”
Speaking about the new contract, Fiona Gerhard, head of inspectorate services, said: “I am pleased to share that we are continuing our longstanding relationship with Capita Customer Management to run our contact centre. As the first point of call for the millions of people who get in touch with us, providing professional and supportive advice is crucial.”
The contact centre operates a 24-hour operation, 365 days a year, from Capita House in Dearne Valley and employs 180 full time employees.
