One hundred and twenty jobs are being created at a call centre near Newport, it has been announced.
The new staff will offer call centre services to some major firms
Dial, a contact centre based in Llantarnam, wants to recruit the new staff to join the existing 250-strong workforce.
The company says that the new staff are needed to cope with expanding business.
The firm provides call centre services for a number of major companies across the UK.
The business, which has an annual turnover of £7m, provides call centre services to firms like Yes Loans, British Gas and the Carphone Warehouse.
"When we talk about recruiting 120 new full time posts, we are not talking about sometime over the next few years but immediately," said managing director Lionel Phillips.
Lionel Phillips said the jobs were needed to cope with expansion
"In order to meet the demands of new contracts we want to employ a large number of individuals straight away."
The company is offering new staff salaries of £15,000 per annum as well as full training.
Last week, Assembly Economic Development Minister Andrew Davies said research showed staff turnover in Welsh call centres was the lowest in the UK, and salaries were above average.
Mr Phillips said a number of accounts had almost doubled in size over the past few months.
'Fantastic asset '
"Our staff are motivated and committed to delivered best results for our clients," he said.
"We are very focused on ensuring that the opportunities are there for members of staff to progress within the company.
Mr Phillips added: "We have staff here who have moved on from operative level to management positions and are forging ahead with their careers with us."
The new jobs have been welcomed by Torfaen Council.
"The Dial contact centre is a fantastic asset for this area and we welcome the announcement that so many new jobs are being created for local people," said councillor Neil Lewis.
"These high value added, skilled job opportunities are exactly the kind of employment we are looking to attract into the area, and we will continue to work closely with Dial in building the business even further."
Last week, it was announced that more than 300 call centre jobs were being created in Cardiff by ING Direct, a division of Dutch-based ING Group.
