More Call Center Jobs Announced

The premier, Postsecondary Education Minister Jody Carr, and other government officials were on hand this afternoon for the announcement of some more new call center jobs in the Port City.

The most recent job announcement comes at home-grown knowledge management consultant firm Innovatia. Premier David Alward tells CHSJ News his government is hoping to meet a new target of 850 new jobs under the One Job Pledge by the end of this fiscal year, which is in March.

Yesterday, TD Insurance announced the creation of 275 jobs at its Rothesay Avenue call center. Twenty-three of the jobs at Innovatia have already been filled by new graduates--and according to co-CEO David Grebenec they are looking to fill 45 more.
