The award marks WGPSN’s first offshore services contract in Colombia and will involve over 100 new jobs. The contract term is three years with an additional three year option to extend.

We are currently recruiting to bring new employees into our business to service this contract and are committed to developing a skilled and talented local workforce."
The contract was won through a competitive tender process.
