Recoveries Corporation $2M Call Centre Opens
The new Recoveries Corporation Group Limited call centre will provide a lot of job opportunities for those who are unemployed at the moment.
These were the remarks by the Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone Usamate yesterday.
He was speaking at the opening of RCL call centre at Kalabu Tax Free Zone in Valelevu, Nasinu.
RCL is a contact centre specialising in debt recovery and insurance claims recovery services.
It formerly worked with the international outsource call centre Mindpearl.
The Australian-based company employs over 230 staff here which they plan to increase to 400 in the next two years.
Mr Usamate welcomes this and said the creation of more jobs for ordinary Fijians was a positive sign.
“I’m happy to see the firm commitment by Recoveries Corporation Group of Australia and your faith in the Fijian economy to make this huge investment,” he said.
He added jobs were important in eradicating many social problems like poverty.
“Jobs help people to make a difference in their own lives and allow people to escape the poverty cycle raising the quality of life.”
Managing director and chief executive for Recoveries Corporation Limited Services David Mond said the investment made by the company would benefit Fiji and their employees.
“The Government will recognise the importance of investing in Fiji to deliver jobs in the services sector for all Fijians,” Mr Mond said.
He also said RCL was a long term investor in Fiji and looked forward to providing more employment and career opportunities.
“With the new delivery centre in Fiji, we will be able to continue our rapid expansion and further our initiatives to the South pacific Region and beyond, asserting our position as a global competitor,” he said.
Mr Mond added the company chose to invest in Fiji because they believe Fijian people have ethics that they believed in.
