Aegis to Add More Than 1,000 Jobs in Irving

A growing healthcare client base is sparking a hiring spree at Aegis, which has its American headquarters in Irving. The outsourcing services company, part of the global Essar Group, aims to add 600 customer service representatives and 480 sales representatives at its Irving centers.

Sandip Sen, global CEO, said the company also is hiring at its other U.S. locations.

“When we joined the jobs4america Coalition last year, we pledged to hire more than 4,000 workers in the United States over the next two years,” he said. “This is the latest demonstration of progress toward fulfilling that pledge.”

Hiring will take place during the next six weeks. Bilingual (English and Spanish) candidates are encouraged to apply. Both full-time and temporary posts are available. Applications are being accepted online at the company’s website and in person at 8001 Bent Branch Drive in Irving.

Along with healthcare, Aegis services clients in other industries, including banking and finance, technology and telecom, travel, hospitality, consumer goods, retail, and energy and utilities.

The company was founded 30 years ago. It now operates in 13 countries and has more than 55,000 employees.
