New members of the Worldwiders family
Our offices in Lisbon welcomed a new member Arhur Gleyze an International recruiter. Arthur, he comes straight from Annecy, near the Alps in France. After finishing his studies in Business and management in the sport industry, he fell in love with Lisbon. So, what was supposed to be a three-week holiday, became his next destination to start a new career. He speaks French, Spanish and English. Always thrilled by new challenges, his love for traveling and discovering new places led him to this adventure. Passionate about sport, he will use this mentality to provide the best service. On his free time, he enjoys meeting friend to go skateboarding around the city and eventually catch a wave during weekends.
Our offices in Oslo welcome Peppiina Santala, International Recruiter and Juuli Strandberg, Talent Hunter.

We wish all our colleagues good luck! We are now more than 80 people working in the company and we have a clear goal of being 100+ colleagues by 2024.
In the meantime, our colleagues in Tallinn, Estonia and Lisbon, Portugal enjoyed a nice after-work together! Activities outside of work are very important to us. They allow us to strengthen the bonds between colleagues, promote teamwork and combine business with pleasure!
Also, our colleagues based in Malaga celebrated Feria. The annual Malaga city fair in August is an exuberant week-long street party with plenty of flamenco and 'fino' (sherry). The fair commemorates the re-conquest of the city by Isabella and Ferdinand in 1487 and traditionally runs for a week from Saturday to Sunday (inclusive) over the third week in August. Our colleagues took full advantage of this cool opportunity!
Finally, during the month of August we helped 174 people start a new job and celebrated helping over 1035 people with new jobs since January 2022! We are extremely proud to have been able to help so many candidates change their lives and start a professional career abroad. To find out more about our offers click here.
