JLL Grows with Modern Offices and 150 New Jobs in Costa Rica

  • The firm has invested more than ₡2,450 million in its new Cityzen headquarters in La Ribera de Belén. 
  • The company is consolidating its 20-year footprint in Costa Rica. 
San Jose, Costa Rica. August 9, 2023. JLL, leader in professional real estate investment management services, has inaugurated its new office in Costa Rica to consolidate its shared services center for the Americas. The company will reinforce its footprint in Costa Rica with this new investment, foreseeing the creation of more than 150 jobs to reach 400 employees in this country by the end of the year.

JLL is a global leader in commercial real estate investment management with offices in more than 80 countries and a global workforce of more than 103,000 employees.

The company launched Costa Rican operations, managing real estate projects for other multinationals. It now manages more than 100,000 m2 from our country. JLL’s growth in this country has led to the setting up of a corporate services center delivering finance, project management, marketing, and customer services for the United States and Canada.

“At JLL we believe that by finding more innovative, intelligent, and human ways of doing things we can discover success opportunities that help us grow. That’s why we’re delighted to be inaugurating our new office in Costa Rica, a country that for more than 20 years has demonstrated its quality multilingual talent, privileged location, and favorable environment for us and our customers. All these reasons make this reinvestment the right decision for building and expanding JLL’s business in the region,” affirmed Victor Espino, Work Dynamics Head for Greater Latin America.

The new facilities in La Ribera de Belén consist of 2,300 m2 with the potential of expansion to an additional 1,200 m2. JLL’s new offices, designed with accessibility, diversity, inclusion, and sustainability in mind, have a hybrid work model and 200 workstations and incorporate high-tech conveniences, modern collaborative workspaces, and networking in a smart building.

CINDE Managing Director Marianela Urgellés noted, “we have worked closely with JLL from the start of our relationship with them in 2009, giving them the advisory and assistance needed for setting up and growing in Costa Rica. We are proud to see how these efforts translate today into quality jobs for 250 Costa Ricans and that with the new $4.5 million investment the company projects a marked growth in its local workforce, opening up new opportunities for professionals with experience in finance, customer service, market analytics, and project management.”

JLL is currently looking for bilingual professionals with an intermediate or advanced level of English to join its team. Among the benefits offered to its employees is a modern hybrid work model that provides flexible work hours. Employees also receive an annual bonus, access to a company doctor at the workplace, private insurance, a learning center for their professional development, and the support of the solidarity association for fostering their wellbeing.
