Sarnia-Lambton General Manager George Mallay confirmed today that a Canadian company has narrowed its search for a new contact centre location to the City of Sarnia and one other Canadian community.
The as-yet-unnamed firm will be holding a job fair in the near future to gauge Sarnia-Lambton’s interest. Interviews and resumes gathered at the job fair will be used to select the company’s labour pool, should they choose Sarnia-Lambton for their location.
“These are full time jobs covering all aspects of contact centre operations, including customer / technical support agents, supervisors, trainers, recruitment, HR, payroll, IT support and site management,” said Mallay. He noted that applicants do not have to have prior contact centre experience. “The company is very interested in people with experience in retail, hospitality, or the gaming industry, in addition to our excellent pool of call centre employees that have, or soon will be, losing their current jobs.”
The time and location of the job fair will be released once it is confirmed by the company. Information on the company will also be announced at that time. In the interim, the Economic Partnership has set up a number of social media sites to provide the local community with updates as they become available. Job seekers can receive email updates by entering their contact information at http://tinyurl.com/LambtonJobs, by following www.twitter.com/LambtonJobs, or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LambtonJobs.
Mallay noted that the company is well-respected, and is known for its excellent employer-employee relations. “It would be an excellent fit for Sarnia-Lambton, but it is still very definitely a competition. We need to make this the biggest and best job fair Sarnia-Lambton has ever seen.”
