I've previously commented on the success we had in bringing a new call center to Edinburg. Gov. Perry was instrumental in assisting me in bringing the call center company, Maximus, Inc. and its numerous jobs to my hometown.
Maximus, Inc. plans to open a new customer contact center in Edinburg in August to support the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
The company will employ up to 400 people in the Renaissance Industrial Park in Edinburg by the end of 2012. Employees will help eligible Texans enroll in Medicaid, SNAP food benefits and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. This location will be the fourth site the company operates as part of its contract with the state.
Maximus will hold a job fair from 3:00pm to 7:00pm on Tuesday, July 19th, at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library, 1906 S. Closner Blvd, Edinburg, TX. The fair will give job seekers the chance to learn more about available positions.
Maximus currently operates customer contact centers in Austin, Midland and Athens, Texas, and employs more than 2,200 people statewide. Edinburg is located in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas.
Maximus (NYSE: MMS) provides health and human services program management and consulting services to clients in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. The company is based in Reston, Va.
