Sarnia Transit offers complimentary bus passes to job fair attendees

Sarnia-Lambton ON – Sarnia Transit and the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership are pleased to announce that Sarnia Transit will provide complimentary bus passes for those traveling by bus to the upcoming HGS Job Fair. Those attending the job fair via Sarnia Transit will each be provided with two free ride coupons, which will be distributed at the job fair by the organizers.

The HGS Job Fair is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., October 29 and 30, at the Lambton Inn, 1485 London Road, Sarnia.

“This is a great opportunity for Sarnia Transit to support the HGS Job Fair. We are hopeful that this support will help the job fair reach the target of 1,500 applicants over the two days,” said Jim Stevens, Director of Transit. “Sarnia Transit is delighted to have the opportunity to be a part of this job fair.”

On both days of the event, for added convenience for job fair attendees, a temporary bus stop on Route 9 (Lambton College) will be established near the Lambton Inn. Sarnia Transit is also promoting the job fair through on-bus and bus terminal advertising.

Contact centre company HGS Canada is evaluating the local employment market as part of its site selection process. The company is looking at potentially locating a new 500 employee site in Sarnia-Lambton. The site would create hundreds of quality new jobs, including frontline, business support, and management positions.

The job fair will provide everyone the opportunity to find out more about the company and what makes HGS so different in the contact centre industry.

Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership General Manager George Mallay said, “We want all levels of qualified applicants from customer support agents to supervisors, trainers, and site management to come to the job fair. With the support of Sarnia Transit and many other community partners including Lambton College, the libraries, local employment agencies, municipal offices, arenas, we expect a good turnout on October 29th and 30th to meet the HGS team.” Mallay added, “There is an opportunity to apply on-line before the job fair, but it is important that applicants also come out to the job fair to understand who HGS is and meet their staff.”
