A recruitment drive has been launched by two local companies to fill seventy permanent career roles in Stoke-on-Trent.
Xpert Recruitment Solutions are leading the campaign for local company Advantis on their mission to provide permanent positions based at their Shelton Old Road Site.
The full-time collection agent roles with Advantis – a leading Debt Collection Agency who work with several nationwide clients – are flexible with fixed hours, rotating shifts, part time hours and a four-day working week available to successful candidates.
Naomi Stoddard, Head Of Back Office Operations at Advantis said: “At Advantis we are always keen to build our existing teams with people who are passionate, professional, and tenacious. We are providing these new opportunities for more people to join us this summer and help us to continue to deliver a people focused culture.
“It is also great to be working with Xpert Recruitment Solutions on this as they are great at knowing exactly which candidates we are looking for and connecting the right people to the roles which best suit them. We will provide full induction training for all of our new collections agents, which will provide the base on fast becoming experts on the credit industry. We are really looking forward to welcoming more local people to Advantis and helping them on their career journey.”
Advantis – who were established in 2004 – have a team of more than 200 employees and help over two million customers each year. The company specialises in Debt Collection and Credit Management.

With their new roles they are not just providing job opportunities but long-term careers for their staff and this is a fantastic opportunity to work with a local company based in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent.”
