Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has launched its new shared business services center in Slovakia.
According to Freshfields, “the new center, opening in Bratislava’s iconic Jurkovic Heating Plant, will provide a consistent global service across Freshfields – enabling the firm to deliver an efficient and streamlined business services offering that can retain, attract, and develop the best talent for the future.”
“From December, the center will progressively employ more than 50 finance, human resources, and other support roles, working in close partnership with the firm’s established shared services center in Manchester,” the firm informed. “Both cities form part of the firm’s integrated global service infrastructure, providing a broad skillset of support across financial, language, and marketing services that continues to grow.”
“We’re committed to investing in the best business services talent and infrastructure to serve our clients to the highest level, and the launch of our Bratislava shared services center is the next step on that journey,” Freshfields Managing Partner Alan Mason commented. “Like Manchester, the access to a pool of talented people in Bratislava is significant, with local talent and language skills a decisive factor in our choice of location.”
