As a global company, Mondelez International has to think on a global scale when it comes to growth and expansions. This month, Mondelez International decided to focus its growth in Latin America: the global snack brand announced that it has chosen Costa Rica as the site for its new Human Resources and Employee Services center to service operations in North America.

Mondelez International has several production facilities throughout North America in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. While outside of these countries, a facility in Costa Rica is still close enough to provide services for all three while also providing major job growth within the country. According to reports, Mondelez is currently seeking out bilingual prospects for a number of roles in diverse fields from HR to information systems and technology, and will be hosting a recruiting event in August.

"This new service center and its employees will play a critical role in streamlining key processes that support our business," said Caroline Basyn, Senior Vice President, Mondelez International Business Services, in a press release announcing the new facility. "Our focus will be to create a collaborative and great place to work that builds new capabilities and enhanced organizational performance. Starting today, we are actively seeking more than 100 bilingual candidates with experience in the areas of administration, human resources, information technology and related careers to fill these exciting new roles."

"Mondelez International is giving us excellent news by confirming its new Service center in Costa Rica,” added Jorge Sequeira, CINDE (Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency) General Director. “During 2014, the corporate service sector created 3.500 quality job positions for Costa Ricans. We are sure that Mondelez International will continue to grow in the country in the short and mid-terms thanks to the Costa Rican high quality talent pool."

Located in San Jose, this new facility is expected to open its doors in October.
