AUSTRALIA-BASED professional outsourcing firm Beepo, which operates an office at the Clark Freeport Zone, said it plans to grow its manpower from 200 currently to 5,000 workers over the next five years.
Aimee Engelmann, chief executive officer of Beepo, said the company plans to hire 1,000 workers every year to help fill demand.
Investing close to A$400,000, or approximately P13.2 million, in its operations in Clark, Beepo also increased its personnel to 200 as of October this year from only 15 when the company started operations in April 2014.
“We have a long-term vision to grow and remain in the area (Clark),” said Engelmann during her interview at the Clark Development Corp. (CDC)-sponsored Clark In Action radio program aired over UFM 105.5 and simulcast through the local cable channel in Angeles City.
“I could see an opportunity to combine the fantastic talents here in the Philippines and pair it up with Australian businesses,” Engelmann added.
The top executive of Beepo also said their company and the state-run CDC are working together to invite other Australian firms to invest in Clark.
“We’ve been working together to find those clients who wants to invest long-term in the Philippines, “ Engelmann said.
“A few of our clients have also decided to create their own companies in the Philippines as well,” Engelmann added.
Engelmann said that Clark has a bright future, citing its facilities and infrastructure.
“I did a lot of research on locations in the Philippines and I believe that Clark has such a bright future because of its facilities and infrastructure,” she said.
On age requirement, Engelmann said, “No age limit, absolutely not.”
Engelmann said that since Beepo also promotes work-life balance, “majority of the shifts at Beepo start at 7:00 a.m. Philippine time, finish at 4:00 p.m. and then they can go home to be with their family.”
At present, Beepo is in need of the following: HR Manager, Admin Support with Social Media, Senior Accountant, Assistant Marketing Campaign Manager, Team Leader, HR Assistant, Admin with Finance, Graphic Designer, Accountant, Fleet Coordinator, MS Dynamic, CRM Developer and Customer Service Representatives.
