Arvato creates its newest site in Katowice

Due to the acquisition of new projects and clients, Arvato Poland has taken a strategic decision to create another location in Poland bringing the total to fourteen in the country. The new site is being created in Katowice where up to 200 people will be hired.

In April Arvato, offering comprehensive outsourcing solutions, will open its new location – Financial Services Center. It will offer 20 jobs at the first instance. Ultimately, this number may increase to up to 200 jobs by the end of 2019.

“Developing another Arvato location in Poland is the result of our company’s dynamic growth. The acquisition of new clients and the growth of the existing ones increased the scale of our activity and thus the demand for new employees. We anticipate that this trend will continue also in the years to come. On the basis of a very thorough analysis of the market, we decided that Katowice suits our needs best, both in terms of its location, its quality of potential employees as well as its office space available” – says Tomasz Hadzik, Arvato Financial Solutions director and board member of Arvato Poland.

“Katowice is a strong brand in the eyes of investors – the brand consists of a number of factors, such as: access to qualified staff, excellent geographical location, an extensive investment support system, and the emphasis on “the leisure industry”. The choice of our city by Arvato Poland for the location of its center proves the fact that Katowice is a business-friendly city. At this point, it should be emphasized that investments of this type do not only create new jobs, but also contribute to the dynamic development of Katowice” – says Marcin Krupa, Katowice mayor.

The new branch of Arvato will ultimately occupy a space of almost 1 000 sq. meters in the Altus building at 13 Uniwersytecka St. At the moment, fit-out works are being carried out. The Arvato office in Katowice will serve clients in the telecommunication and energy sector, providing finance and accounting support services. In the first stage, these services will be mainly related to the finance and accounting as well as order-to-cash processes, including payment system support.
