The firm, which provides global software for the automotive finance, leasing, fleet and mobility management sectors, has already recruited 39 new staff members across all offices worldwide so far this year. This includes 10 new employees appointed in Germany, the UK and Belgium in September alone and takes the total number employed across the company to a record 378.

It follows a year of record sales in 2019 with a turnover of €43.6m, up by more than 25% on the previous 12 months.

By launching a dedicated careers portal at https://careers.sofico.global/, Sofico offers potential employees a glimpse of life at the company. The site gives jobhunters a concise explanation of the company’s activities and products, in layman’s terms. It also gives an overview of vacancies that are currently available. These include project managers, business consultants, software engineers, technical consultants and support staff at a number of locations, including Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands and the UK, with up to 25 posts currently available.

Corinne Martens, HR manager, said the new recruits would play a key role the company’s expansion plans outlined to employees in the Vision 2020-2025 programme, aimed at maintaining a healthy growth of 15% per annum through ongoing investment in people and product development.

Martens said: “We need to continue to grow and develop our teams at our local offices across the globe by attracting talented, motivated people. To showcase our company and our jobs to the talent out there, we have now launched this separate career portal.

“This will help us fulfil our strategic aims as we look to develop a learning organisation which encourages people to grow in their job role through continuous learning and personal development,” she elaborated.
