Winnipeg is on the short list for a potential 500-person call centre.
Hinduja Global Solutions Canada Inc. (HGS Canada) said the next step in the site selection process is a job fair event to evaluate the local labour market to determine if there is an adequate number of applicants for positions that would include frontline customer service associates, support and management level positions.
Ross Beattie, president & CEO of HGS Canada, said, "We recently expanded our research into Manitoba and our analysis of Winnipeg is very promising. Although we are a global company, we pride ourselves on being good local corporate citizens and a community minded employer."
Winnipeg would be HGS’s 12th location in Canada. It has five locations in the Maritimes and six in Ontario, half of which are in northern Ontario cities.
Beattie said the company has enough business growth in hand to fill and sustain a 500-seat facility.
The company is holding a job fair in Winnipeg Nov.29 to Nov. 30 at Red River College in the Voyageur Lounge and Dining Room located at 2055 Notre Dame Avenue. Or an online application be filled out now at Teamhgs.com.
