Ibex Global to hire 300 more in Jamaica

Global business process management firm Ibex Global said it will hire 300 more people in Jamaica for a recently acquired account. Ibex Global, which is present in the US, UK, Senegal, Pakistan and the Philippines, said the new account means its existing centre in Portmore Pines, St Catherine, will be operating at full capacity. Ibex declined to provide details about the nature of the new account but said it is a new line of business from one of its existing clients. The BPO company, headquartered in Washington DC, delivers onshore, near shore and offshore solutions in five countries across 18 call centres. It employs more than 15,000 customer service professionals.
