Nokia has signed an agreement with the government for the creation of a Shared Services Centre, which will result in the hiring of 300 professionals in Portugal.

The agreement also provides for Nokia's collaboration with the Digital Transition Action Plan. "The Shared Services Centre, to be located at the company's facilities in Amadora, will add business support services in Nokia's financial and logistics areas and will have a worldwide role," says the technology company, adding that it plans to "integrate professionals with different profiles and experience levels, mainly associated with finance, payment management and customer orders, and with skills in 'master data' and data analysis ".

The centre “in Portugal reinforces the other Nokia centres that already exist in the areas of finance, logistics and purchasing. We want to create a team motivated to accelerate the company's digital transformation and become more agile in responding to market challenges", explains Rod Lindsay, vice president of Global Business Services at Nokia.

For Nokia, Portugal "in a strategic area, with a favourable time zone", and Nokia's presence in the country were "some of the determining elements in the choice".

The Minister of State for Economy and Digital Transition, Pedro Siza Vieira, stresses that this "important news" for Portugal, because it is "a reinforcement of confidence on the part of a company that has long known the capacity of Portuguese staff".
