Some help in sight for hundreds of Quinte area people who have lost their call centre jobs in the last couple of years.
About 800 people have lost jobs with the closure of call centres Teleperformance, Beautyrock, Sears, NCO, Financial, and Teletech. Now the province has provided nearly 99-thousand dollars to establish an “Adjustment Committee” to help the workers. Belleville Manager of Economic Development Karen Poste says it will offer everything from resume writing to job interviewing and job postings. The office should be open by the end of the month.
