Your future is calling: $1000 scholarship for promising young minds

The UK Contact Numbers website is one of a kind. We provide our users in the UK with the updated contact numbers and fast call connection service for most of UK’s government services. We also include popular companies in our service list. Very recently, we have introduced our on-demand call recording service. This will enable our users to record important calls for future references. For example – if you are talking to a customer service agency, you may want to record the details of further inquiries and processes for any reimbursements.

We provide critical contact numbers for some companies including TalkTalk, Vodafone help line, Virgin Media Helpline, EE Helpline, River Island Customer care and at least a hundred more. This calls for advanced database management and smart data services. We have always banked on our DBAs and RDBMS to keep the information updated. Now it is your turn, to turn our heads. This is your chance to win a whopping USD 1000 scholarship for your brilliant idea.
