In addition, the company offers competitive salaries and benefits including 401(k) and 401(k) matching, dental, health and vision insurance, and paid time off.

From its new site in North Charleston, TELUS International will provide high-tech and high-touch customer experiences to leading global brands, such as multinational financial services company Barclays.
As part of the company’s investment in the region, TELUS International also donated $10,000 to the Teachers’ Supply Closet, a nonprofit organization that provides free supplies, such as notebooks, glue sticks, colored pencils and crayons, and hand sanitizer, to educators who teach at schools in the Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties where the majority of students rely on subsidized meal programs.
Education-focused initiatives have been a core pillar in TELUS International’s corporate social responsibility program globally over the past 16 years. The company has organized large-scale volunteer initiatives such as building schools in Guatemala, renovating centers for children with hearing impairments in Bulgaria, and developing programming to teach youth in the Philippines about internet safety.
“We understand the importance of contributing to the well-being of the citizens and communities where our team members and their families live and work, and as such, we volunteer our time and fund meaningful charitable programs in every region where we operate around the world,” said Koskovich. “In North Charleston, we are honored to support the Teachers’ Supply Closet’s mission to meet the educational and creative needs of students in the Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties in South Carolina. Every child deserves the tools and resources they need to be their best selves, and we are looking forward to getting more actively involved within the North Charleston community in the months and years ahead.”
