Cornwall call center adding 450 jobs; job fair Tuesday

CORNWALL – A Cornwall call center, recently bought by an American firm, will be adding 450 full-time positions to its workforce.

TeleTech, which owns the Atelka call center on Tollgate Road, will be hiring English and bilingual customer service reps this year.

A job fair is being held Tuesday (April 18) from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Cornwall Civic Complex.

“We are looking for hard-working people in Cornwall to join our customer experience team, who will thrive in a fun and dynamic environment, and embody our company values to live life passionately and reach for amazing,” Cornwall Call Center Director Niki Palmer said.

The positions are described as having competitive pay with opportunities for advancement and include benefit packages, bonuses and performance recognition.

TeleTech, based in Colorado, has more than 3,000 employees in Canada.

This latest hiring round will add to the 400 positions filled last year.

TeleTech announced in November 2016 it was buying Atelka, an in-bound call center, in a friendly takeover in order to increase its Canadian exposure and tap into its language talent pool.
