itelbpo looks to add up to 400 jobs in St Lucia
Claudia Mc Dowell, Invest Saint Lucia Communications Officer
As many as 400 persons are likely to be soon employed with itelbpo, the Caribbean’s leading homegrown business process outsourcer which opened its doors in St Lucia on June 29, 2020.
That’s according to the Communications Officer of Invest St Lucia (ISL) Claudia Mc Dowell, who spoke with Loop News at the facility yesterday morning, July 8, 2020.
She said in the short term approximately 200 to 400 persons will be employed with the company which is hoping to grow in the future.
Interested persons will have an opportunity to explore an opportunity to work with the company when it hosts two job fairs.
The first will be held on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, at the Hewanorra Freezone in Vieux-Fort and the other on Friday, July 17, at the Duty Free Pointe Seraphine complex in Castries. Both job fairs will be from 9 am to 3 pm.
“We are very excited that they are here. Itelbpo opened on June 29 and it means a lot for us, especially for the south, as it relates to the job opening for the young people,” Mc Dowell said.
She added: “We are inviting young people to come in and bring their Curricula Vitae with them to find out about itelbpo and see if it will be the right fit for them.”
According to Mc Dowell, itelpbo is very interested in St Lucia because of our talented young people, our hardworking nature and our culture as it relates to our workforce.
All attendees are asked to wear face masks, and no one will be allowed to enter the premises without one.
Everyone must adhere to six feet physical distancing and other protective measures instructed by the Ministry of Health. Additionally, the number of persons permitted on the premises at a time will be limited.
Anyone desiring to apply to itelbpo and is unable to attend either of the job fairs can send a curriculum vitae to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Commenting on the physical structure of the retrofitted facility, she said: “I am happy with what I see.”
The investment was facilitated by Invest St Lucia, the national promotion agency.
