DIEPPE – The TD offices in Dieppe will open January 21 says Julie Belissimo, the bank’s Toronto-based Manager of Corporate and Public Affairs.
“On Monday, colleagues will be coming into the TD Centre to begin their training,” she said in an e-mail to Huddle. “We will have more than 70 colleagues from the Contact Centre and more than 80 from the Finance Operations Centre.”
The executives for the corporate office were moved from TD’s Ontario operations, but workers were also sourced locally and from various parts of Canada. The team will grow to 1,000 people over the next few years, Belissimo said.
“For the Contact Centre, we aim to gradually grow to 375 colleagues by October 2019 and to 485 by the end of 2020. For the Finance Operations Centre, we plan to have approximately 200 colleagues by the end of 2019, and aim to continue growing the team to 440 over the next three years.”
“Our presence in Moncton is a long-term commitment to the community. We remain committed to bringing 1,000 new jobs to the region because of its strong workforce and welcoming community. We are still hiring and continue to welcome applications for both the Contract Centre and Finance Operations Centre,” Belissimo added.
The corporate centre includes both the call centre and the finance centre. The finance side will serve all of TD’s lines of businesses for Canada and the U.S.
“We’ll be doing all of the general accounting, the financial statements, all of the financial reporting for the bank for both Canada and for the U.S.,” said VP and Head of Finance Operations Dale McErlean during a media tour of the facility in December.
TD is spending around $50-million for the former Sears space. Cadillac Fairview, the real estate arm of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and owner of CF Champlain, said in a release in April 2018 that it’s investing $25-million into the redevelopment.
With a door that directly connects the 108,000-square-foot office to the mall, employees will be able to access shops and restaurants at CF Champlain.
