PRA Group has announced plans to open two call centers – one in North Carolina and one in Nevada – which will employe more than 800 staffers once fully operational.
The North Carolina call center, which will be in Burlington, N.C., has a capacity for 500 employees, according to a published report. The company is hosting a job fair this coming Saturday to start filling job openings at both locations. The Nevada call center will be based on Henderson, Nev.
PRA said it commissioned a site study to “identify markets with the best combination of talent, cost and competition conditions.”
The company is looking for candidates to fill job openings as call center representatives, operations managers, human resources, and IT professionals.
“Given the portfolio purchases we have already made and the volume of supply we believe to be on the horizon, we are opening two new call centers. We have worked closely with local officials from each city, appreciate their warm welcome, and look forward to partnerships that will mutually benefit their constituents and our customers and shareholders. We are currently hiring in both localities and look forward to having our new collectors ready for the first quarter of 2018 when cash collections are seasonally strong,” said Kevin Stevenson, president and chief executive officer of PRA Group, Inc., in a press release announcing the move.
