Vodafone BPO jobs coming to India

Three months after Vodafone Australia Ltd and Hutchison 3G Australia formed a 50:50 joint venture, Vodafone Hutchison announced offshoring up to 450 call centre jobs from Melbourne to India and Tasmania.

Confimring the company's offshoring plans, a company spokesperson said about 100 jobs would go to Kingston, Tasmania and unspecified number of positions would be transferred to Mumbai, India.

This was also confirmed by Service Stream, the company that was running Vodafone contract. The firm disclosed that in a move that will shift the positions to Vodafone offices in India and Tasmania, Vodafone plans to end the contract employing 450 in customer service and support roles from Oct 2009 to Feb 2010.
