Huntswood partners with its clients to deliver authentic, innovative outsourcing services, from customer service to complaints, sales and remediation.
Highly respected global brands have invested in delivering their customer care and sales experiences from Huntswood's centres of excellence in the UK and South Africa. The market movement has seen brands repatriate services being provided from 'traditional' offshore locations back to the UK or into South Africa. We have particular expertise in transitioning large and complex operations, given our vast experience in regulated industry.

Why South Africa?
The cost of operations in South Africa can be 50%-60% lower than those in the UK for both voice and non-voice models, whilst all our delivery centres benefit from a young, flexible and motivated workforce, thanks to superb local higher education institutions. Attrition and absence is low, and South Africa's cultural affinity with the UK mitigates the issues that have traditionally been associated with offshoring.
South Africa’s BPO offering continues to mature at a significant rate, which represents an opportunity for clients to obtain exacting quality while also avoiding the 'market overheating' characteristics associated with major metropolitan BPO hubs elsewhere in the world. It remains a sustainable hotbed of talent thanks to a high student population, excellent standards of education and knowledge of UK culture. Additionally, lower wage inflation, an exceptional work ethic and strong employee loyalty highlight it as an optimal location when it comes to quality, delivery and value.
As experts in customer servicing in regulated markets, Huntswood has chosen to invest heavily in its South African operations, as we believe they provide a fantastic opportunity for clients to realise cost benefits while delivering the same high quality services to their customers.
Our facilities are state-of-the-art, secure and include full business continuity provision, meeting and training space and immaculate breakout facilities which support the social side of working for Huntswood.
