US company World Fuel Services seeks 70 bilingual employees

November 18, 2015

World Fuel Services (WFS), a company in the marketing and financing of fuel products, will expand operations in Costa Rica next year, and is currently recruiting 70 people, the Foreign Trade Ministry reported.

The company reported that its growth is based on positive results achieved since its opening here in 2009. Currently the Miami-based company employs 130 workers and hopes to start 2016 with 200.

WFS is looking to hire staff with experience in business administration, accounting, finance or similar careers. All candidates must be fully bilingual (English and Spanish), and recruiters also are seeking people fluent in Mandarin.

The Costa Rica operation, located in Lindora, west of San José, provides services for WFS operations in Asia, Europe and the Americas. Local staff handle the company’s billing services, customer service, cash applications, data managment, business relationship management for air and maritime sectors, accounting, information technologies and human resources.

Legal representative Juan Martínez said the decision to expand the Costa Rica operation was made by the parent company in the U.S. based on the qualifications of the local staff.

Foreign Trade Minister Alexander Mora welcomed the news and said the service sector now accounts for almost 72 percent of the country’s gross domestic product and over 40 percent of total exports expected this year.

Those interested in applying for a job can send résumés by email to: CR-HRRecruiting@wfscorp.com.

WFS provides marketing and financing of aviation, marine and ground transportation of fuel products and related services to commercial and corporate aircraft, petroleum distributors and ships. Currently it offers its services at more than 8,000 locations around the world.
