A major employment announcement in Moncton.
150 business service centre jobs are coming to Moncton over the next five years for Club Auto.
CEO Sean Grasby says after researching different areas of Canada, they settled on Moncton because of a great reputation in this market.
"Bilingual was a critical requirement for us to service all Canadians, so Moncton and New Brunswick specifically fit that bill," says Grasby. "But we were also looking for a market where there was good access to skilled labour and great talent."
Grasby says the jobs will initially be only bilingual, but that may change over time as they find out whether their clients skew to either Anglophone or Francophone.
The provincial government is providing $830,000 in payroll rebates, only to be given to Club Auto after proof of employing staff for at least a year.
