ACC may axe two call centres, move 87 jobs

ACC © SNPA ACC Dozens of people may lose their jobs if they're not willing to move to other parts of the country as the Accident Compensation Corporation mulls shutting its call centres in Auckland and Wellington.

The government agency is proposing closing the big city centres and moving their 87 jobs to Hamilton and Dunedin.

The consolidation of the centres to two cities is an effort to improve customer service so that all staff are better able to deal with peaks of demand after operating hours were increased, a spokesman says.

ACC will offer financial assistance to those who opt to move and those who do not want to shift will be helped to find jobs elsewhere, he told NZ Newswire.
