Fortuna BMC, Inc. will bring 50 remote call center jobs to Fayetteville, and hiring is underway now.

Fayetteville will have a few dozen new call center jobs, as California-based Fortuna BMC is expanding into the area.

The Fayetteville-Cumberland Economic Development Corporation announced that hiring is underway for Fortuna BMC in Cumberland County. The 50 call center employees will be remote work opportunities.

“We are eager to select Fayetteville for our expansion on the East Coast due to its proximity and connection to Fort Bragg, the largest military installation in the United States by population,” Jack Smith, CEO and founder of Fortuna BMC said in an FCEDC release. “As a veteran of the United States Air Force, I can identify with the challenges presented by the military-to-civilian transition, such as fundamental career support, and helping others understand the skills I can bring to the table from serving my country in the armed forces. After our recent visit to Fayetteville, we are fully convinced that this is a welcoming community for organizations like Fortuna BMC that are passionate about connecting the military community to great job opportunities post-service.”

Fortuna BMC is an “IT consulting and staffing company” that focuses on things like Contact Center Support, Information Security and Project Management, among other specialties.

“Creating these types of employment opportunities for and within our local community brings financial stability, and it eases the post-service transition for many veterans,” Rob Patton, FCEDC Vice President said. “We’re excited that Fortuna BMC selected our region as the place to create those meaningful connections, which will undoubtedly bridge the gap for the veterans.”

The release said Fortuna BMC will work with a number of local organizations and educational institutions on workforce development and hiring for the Fayetteville call center jobs.
