OSHAWA — An Oshawa-based call and customer support centre has announced it is hiring 200 new workers.
Concentrix, formerly known as Minacs, is one of Oshawa’s largest employers and will grow to roughly 1,000 employees once the new workers come on board.
The company provides customer support for automotive and financial brands including General Motors and American Express.
Officials from the company say they’re looking for inbound customer service representatives in both English and bilingual English and French roles.
“Concentrix has a very unique mix of flexible career opportunities while promoting advancement; the vast majority of our senior leadership team started out in the type of roles we’re recruiting for this summer,” said Emily Martin, talent acquisition manager for Concentrix.
Elaine Minacs launched the company originally as a home business and it has been located in Oshawa since 1981. Minacs was acquired by Concentrix in 2016.
Oshawa development services chair John Aker praised the company as innovative and a leader in its field.
“They continue to provide high quality employment opportunities to local residents and we are very pleased to see this sector grow in Oshawa,” he said.
