BPO Aegis Services to create 550 new call centre jobs in Australia

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine has announced that Indian owned Aegis BPO Services to create 550 new jobs in its business processing outsourcing operations.

“200 new jobs will be created next year, and an additional 350 jobs in 2016,” Dr Napthine said.

“This expansion will see Aegis Services Australia (Aegis), a global outsourcing and technology company, establish Victoria as its Asia-Pacific hub for business processing outsourcing.

“This announcement is an example of the Victorian Coalition Government’s commitment to creating Victorian jobs and boosting our economy, as announced last week with the Victorian Jobs in the 21st Century plan.

“This significant expansion will mean a doubling of Aegis’ existing Victorian workforce and a substantial investment in training and up-skilling of Aegis Services Australia’s workforce.

“Today’s announcement – proudly supported by the Victorian Coalition Government – is yet another vote of confidence in Melbourne and Victoria as a leader in financial and business services.

“The project also boosts Victoria’s already strong reputation as a destination for global investment. It represents another significant step towards a more diversified Victorian economy with strong services industries, and positions Victoria as a global business services centre.”

Global CEO of Aegis, Mr Sandip Sen, and CEO Anthony Seaegg said the venture marked a milestone for the company.

“These are exciting times for Aegis Australia. We are investing a significant amount in up-skilling our operations to better deliver the high-end services our customers expect,” Mr Sen said.

“Melbourne’s language capability, high-quality educational institutions and diverse skill base provides Aegis with the confidence to be able to deliver the high-end services our clients expect.
