Multinational creates 600 jobs in Portugal
Until October, Teleperformance, a leader in ‘customer service’ and ‘contact centers,’ intends to create 600 new jobs in Portugal. Teleperformance wants to reinforce its activity in Portugal and thus is recruiting hundreds of new workers.
The average salary ranges between 700 and €1,200 depending on the language and function to be performed. The recruitment starts this month with the hiring of 67 new people, fluent in French, to whom a welcoming bonus of €1,500 will be offered.
The new recruits will get started with a training period focused on the company’s global processes and on the specific functions.
This new hiring follows a “very positive 2013”, a year when several business areas registered a significant growth. (00 new jobs were created then and activity registered a growth of 22%.
Expectations are that 2014 will be “a year of robust growth”. The company currently hires approximately 4,000 people. Of those, 1,400 perform their jobs exclusively on a foreign language.
In September 2013, Teleperformance opened its 6th “action center” at the Parque das Nações in an investment of 4 million euros.
