Accent Marketing Services adding 200 jobs in Jeffersonville

JEFFERSONVILLE — Accent Marketing Services is offering 200 new engagement specialist positions at the Jeffersonville location at 4550 Town Center Blvd.

Accent is a call center that has partnerships with businesses like Panasonic and Samsung.

These 200 positions, which will be dealing in sales and technical support, will add up to a grand total of 500 employees locally, according to Sarah Thorson, media spokeswoman for Accent. She said the expansion is prompted by a successful business year.

“They’re continuing their momentum by expanding their client base and adding new jobs,” she said.

When Accent first opened its Jeffersonville location in 2012, it transferred 400 jobs over from New Albany. Thorson said that number has changed because of seasonal employment adjustments related to Accent’s clients’ needs. The company has not laid off employees and attributed employee reductions to attrition, she said.

“Thanks to new client programs and ramping up existing client programs, Accent will be adding over 200 positions this spring,” Thorson said in an email.

The positions will have a starting salary of $9 an hour and will including paid training and limited medical, dental, vision and life insurance.

Those interested can attend Accent’s job fair Wednesday, Feb. 26, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Jeffersonville location or apply on Accent’s website — accentonline.com/careers/career-opportunities
