Capital One Financial Corp. is looking to hire 50 new employees, a few months after laying off hundreds over the past two years.

The financial giant — which operates a call center at 12123 S.W. 69th Ave.in Tigard — announced Thursday that it plans to hold a job fair on Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Embassy Suites, 9000 S.W. Washington Square Road.

The company is looking to hire about 50 people for its fraud detection and customer service departments.

What: Capital One job fair

Where: Embassy Suites, 9000 S.W. Washington Square Road, in Tigard.

When: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11

“We are committed to building our workforce in Tigard and are always on the lookout for top talent who can bring a variety of thoughts, ideas and backgrounds to serve our customers and help us continue to grow and succeed,” said Rick Zinda, Capital One’s vice president of operations.

The Tigard office was once HSBC’s largest customer service center with more nearly 1,000 employees.

The call center has gone through major reshuffling over the past few years. The company has gone through three rounds of layoffs since it took over operating the call center from British banking giant HSBC in 2012.

It laid off more than 200 people from the call center in 2012 and cut an additional 70 in September, then hired about 120 people in October.
