Randstad, the Dutch human resources company, is to recruit 125 employees for a new call centre that will open in Vila real, North of Portugal, in a partnership with the municipality of Trás-os-Montes. 

The Mayor of Vila Real underlined that Randstad is one of the biggest employers in Vila Real. 

The work may be performed remotely, by telework, in a hybrid way or in person, in the office. The French language is a fundamental requirement. Over 25% of Randstad's activity in the country is service exports, through these contact centres set up for international customers.
