Swedish Essity is strengthening its presence in Portugal by opening a Shared Services Centre in Lisbon. The company, which operates in the hygiene and health sector, have 170 job offers, a source tells ECO. “We have no plans or internal indications about opening new centres.”
“Our intention is to establish Business Service Centres (CSE) for shared services in Lisbon (Portugal) for the Europe business and in Santa Fe (Mexico City) to support the teams in the Americas (Central America, Mexico and North America),” explains José Ramon Iracheta, Essity’s country manager, quoted in a statement.
“Several international companies have also already implemented their shared service centres in these cities, giving us access to skills that will make us fit for the future. In both cities we find high digital adoption and digital capabilities, high educational levels, universities, good language skills and a very competitive cost environment – being the main reasons that led us to choose Portugal and Santa Fe,” says Carl-Magnus Stensson, vice president of Essity and the person responsible for this Business Service Center project in Lisbon.
Already in Portugal for several years, with commercial teams linked to the areas of consumer goods and health & medical solutions, this year the Swedish company invested in opening a hub as “part of its growth strategy,” with Portugal being “one of the investment priorities.”
At this stage, the main recruitment needs are profiles specialised in support areas, such as Process Automation Analyst, Accounts Payable Administrator, Accounting Administrator and Accounts Receivable Administrator, among others.
