Encore Capital Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECPG), an international specialty finance company, has made a pledge to Hiring Our Heroes to increase the number of military veterans and spouses it hires in the United States. Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide program that helps veterans and their spouses find meaningful employment.

As part of its pledge, Encore will provide career development support at local job fairs specifically focused on veterans’ employment, including Warriors to the Workforce and East County Employs Our Vets. On Sept. 18, Encore will participate in a Hiring our Heroes job fair at Camp Pendleton, a Marine Corps base near San Diego. Human resources executives will be on hand to meet veterans, evaluate their resumes and other job seeking tools, and provide advice and support on finding a civilian job.

With more than 1,400 employees in the United States, Encore’s operations are located in areas with over half a million military service members and returning veterans, many of whom are ready to transition to the civilian workforce. The company’s US-based employment centers include San Diego; Phoenix; Houston; Dallas; San Antonio, TX; McAllen, TX; Tampa, FL; St. Cloud, MN; Warren, MI; New Freedom, PA.; and Roseland, NJ.

“Seeking to employ veterans and their spouses dovetails with our Corporate Social Responsibility objective to create economic empowerment through education, job training, and basic support,” said Marianne Campbell, Encore’s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility. “We’re confident that our culture, for which we have won numerous awards, forms a great place for military veterans seeking a meaningful career with opportunities for growth and development.”
