SYKES recently announced that it will open its new headquarters in Solarium Park, Liberia, and will begin hiring the first 100 permanent positions during November and December. The company estimates it will hire a total of 600 people within 18 months, to work at their new headquarters.

Bilingual applicants will be considered for positions in financial and telecommunications operations, while those with basic and intermediate knowledge in networks will be hired for positions in technical support. The interview and recruitment process will be carried out remotely, via digital platforms.

The announcement of this important investment outside the Greater Metro Area (GMA) was made this morning at the Presidential House, in the company of the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado; the First Lady, Claudia Dobles; the Acting Minister of Foreign Trade, Duayner Salas; the Minister of Labor and Social Security (MTSS), Geannina Dinarte; the Managing Director of CINDE, Jorge Sequeira; and the General Manager of SYKES, Alejandro Arciniegas.

We are pleased to announce this new investment, which will generate jobs that benefit families in the Guanacaste area. Sykes, an ally of Costa Rica for many years, has an important characteristic: when they arrive in an area, others follow because they are a talent-generating company. We are looking for these jobs to multiply, not only because of the growth of Sykes but also because of other companies that see the potential of Guanacaste and other regions of the country, the potential of our human talent,” said President Alvarado.

He added that the Costa Rican government has extended its support to the Alliance for Bilingualism, whose goal by 2040 is for everyone who graduates the Costa Rican educational system – public or private – to be bilingual.

“We are pleased to announce the opening of our first offices outside the Greater Metropolitan Area. There, we will stay true to our vocation – to developing talent and generating hundreds of jobs in the region, thus indirectly benefitting many families and contributing to growth in the country’s exports. This marks the establishment of the first in what we believe will be the beginning of a new development pole in high-tech corporate services,” mentioned Arciniegas.

To apply to available positions, applicants must have an English level equal to or greater than 85%, and must apply online at www.sykescostarica.com; applicants will be asked to upload their resume before scheduling any corresponding exams and/or interviews.

Applicants who do not meet the required English level will be granted entry to SYKES Academy, whose purpose is to improve, in short cycles of one to two months, their command of the language in order to secure a job offer.
