Kantar announces Regional Delivery Centre in Porto, creating up to 200 Jobs

Kantar, the world’s leading data-driven analytics and brand consulting company today announces a $5 million investment in Porto with the establishment of a new Regional Delivery Centre. Plans are in development for the new centre to create up to 200 new jobs by the end of 2022 within Kantar’s Finance, HR and Procurement functions. Additionally, Kantar has a clear ambition to extend its presence to include strategic technology roles in the future.

Porto’s track record in attracting and scaling delivery centres was a key factor in Kantar’s decision. The city’s multilingual talent pool combined with its technological infrastructure and growing innovation credentials reinforced the choice. Commenting on the investment decision, Ian Griffiths, Kantar’s Deputy CEO and Group CFO said "Over the past two years Kantar has been on a significant transformation journey. Our investment in Porto is a key step on that journey; ensuring we have the right support capabilities to deliver the outstanding service our clients and stakeholders expect. I am excited to develop these new capabilities in Porto in support of our growth ambitions.” 

Speaking on behalf of the city of Porto, Ricardo Valente, City Councillor for Economy, Tourism and Commerce, added "Kantar’s decision to locate a new regional delivery centre in Porto is a great illustration of the talent and infrastructure we have to offer here in Porto. These new jobs, created with a world-leading organisation, represent a great opportunity for the people of Porto and a key contribution for the development of our community.”

Kantar will partner with Hays Recruitment on the identification and recruitment of new employees. The new regional delivery centre is expected to begin operation before the end of H1 2022.
