News-Press -- Hertz Corp. will step up the effort to hire workers for its new Southwest Florida headquarters with a two-day job fair beginning Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Estero.
The company’s careers website lists more than 70 openings ranging from security guards, receptionists, recruiters, and even a vice president of procurement for the heavy equipment division.
“We are going to be hiring a lot more than that, but these are some of our more immediate needs,” said Richard Broome, vice president of corporate affairs for Hertz. “These jobs are going to be in Florida, so it just makes sense to recruit for them in Florida.”
Also on Wednesday, the company intends to present preliminary building plans for its $68 million headquarters campus to the Estero Design Review Committee.
Some of the advertised positions are open because workers won’t relocate and others are needed because of the move. For example, the seven recruiters now being sought will help with the hiring of additional workers in the months ahead, Broome said.
On Monday, the company announced senior executive vice president and chief financial officer, Elyse Douglas, has decided for personal reasons that she won’t relocate to Florida and will step down from her current role effective Oct. 1., although she will remain with the company through the end of the year.
Pay ranges for jobs are not listed.
