The City of Smiles played a key role in the expansion and continuous operation of Transcom in the Philippines according to Mark Lyndsell, Transcom's CEO for the Global English Region.

"It is home to about a third of our entire employee population in the country and has been a long-time venue where most of the important brands or clients of Transcom are served," Lyndsell added.

The BPO company has been operating in the city for more than 10 years.

"Growing Transcom Philippines essentially entails growing it further in Bacolod and potentially in the wider province of Negros Occidental given the province's rich contribution to the company's journey and success," Co further commented.

Transcom is hiring over 1,000 Customer Service and Technical Support Representatives for one of the biggest global media and technology companies in the United States for the 4th quarter of 2022. The opportunities are open to non-college graduates and even to those without any call center experience for so long as applicants are highly motivated to learn, passionate about assisting customers, and have good English conversational skills.

Job seekers may visit the Transcom Bacolod Recruitment Hub on October 3, 2022 onwards to find out more about the various exciting incentives, bonuses, and top of the line benefits that Transcom offers. The hub is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday and targets to process at least 50 applicants per day.
