Are Onshore call centre jobs always good news?

Normally I would always say "yes", but today I saw a story on the BBC, "Debt firm expands with 200 jobs", that did make me reconsider.

The two hundred UK jobs are always good news, but it's a slightly ambivalent feeling when the firm describes these jobs as being created because of "...rises in the levels of debt in the UK and the global credit crunch". It's not an area of financial services that I've done much work in previously, but it does seem to be one of the financial services sector growth areas for the near future.

Still, we'll see later today how bad things are when the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee meets to decide this month's interest rates.
