Vodafone created in 2013 a contact center in Braga, requiring to 110 new people to work. However they're increasing this center and need more 200 employees in 2014.

Microsoft has also created in Lisbon a call center based on costumer support regarding Office 365. They need about 25 people although they admit that if people start to use the Office, increasing its usage, they have to increase their recruiting as well. As the international market becomes a client of the new Office 365 the recruiting will have to grow in the same portion.
