Foreign investments continue to contribute to the recovery of employment in Bogota. Two companies are looking for bilingual talent in the capital for the development of their operations, Prodigious, from France and Lean Solutions Group, from the United States.
International companies established in Bogota continue to contribute to the economic and social development of the Colombian capital by generating new jobs. According to estimates of the foreign investment promotion agency Invest in Bogota, in the first three months of the year alone, 20 projects that arrived to the capital generated approximately 1,000 direct jobs, which are vital in the midst of the recovery the city wants to experience due to the current pandemic.
Most of the jobs generated by foreign investment are associated with service companies, including software development, business consulting and process outsourcing.
Currently, companies in the information technology and service outsourcing sectors are looking for human talent in the city, as there are about 750 job vacancies available. One of the companies with job offers is the French company Prodigious, which currently has 500 positions open for the whole country under the remote work modality.
Natalia Botero, Regional Talent Acquisition Lead of the company, highlights that the available vacancies include professional areas such as design, business administration, communications, psychology, advertising, economics, systems engineering, industrial engineering, statistics, mathematics, among others.
