Three companies with Hamilton locations are holding hiring events this coming week.

Barclaycard, a credit-card servicing division of the international Barclays Bank, has opportunities available for collections representatives, fraud investigators, customer care relationship manager.

The company is holding a hiring event from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, at OhioMeansJobs-Butler County, 4631 Dixie Highway, Fairfield.

The international credit card servicing company opened its call center at 101 Knightsbridge Drive inside the Vora Technology Park in early 2016 with a promise to create about 1,500 new jobs in coming years.

It has grown from 50 employees then to currently about 500 employees, the majority of whom work on the building’s fourth floor. With a recent renovation and opening of the third floor, Barclaycard has added 32,000 square feet and more than 380 desks.

That means hundreds of new jobs in four Barclaycard departments: collections, customer care, quality and training, and fraud detection, according to the company.
