Currently the chances of qualified Customer Service Representatives in Financial Services finding employment are considered to be fair in the local area. Consolidation of financial institutions, and automation of services such as ATMs and online banking have affected demand for this occupation in recent years. However, many financial institutions are now offering longer hours and are opening on Saturdays, which have created more opportunity for customer service representatives. As this is usually an entry level occupation in the industry, vacancies occur as tellers move to other jobs in the organization, leave for other jobs or retire. This occupational group does not include call centre positions associated with financial institutions.
In addition to employment opportunities locally, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Customer Service Representatives in Financial Services in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
