Porto Centre of Excellence

Live locally, work globally. Welcome to our Porto Centre of Excellence!

When you think about a work-life balance, are you thinking “work hard, play hard” or are you thinking about time with your family after work? We think our new Centre of Excellence offers both.

Our new office in Portugal’s second city, Porto, was officially inaugurated in 2019 to house our teams from Finance, IT, Accounting, Sustainability and more. Based in a newly converted warehouse, it’s an incredibly attractive place to work.

And when you’re not working, you’re in one of Europe’s most beautiful corners. Cobblestone streets, magnificent architecture, Baroque and modern alike, plus a waterfront location, laid-back vibe, and some of the continent’s finest beaches!

So, whether you want to party hard or unwind on the beach with your family, there are plenty of options here.
