Meet the people who write our story
"I joined JLL almost 24 years ago. Arrived from Italy, where I took an MBA, I met an excellent company. With a lot of dedication and learning, I took advantage of the opportunities I received, implanted projects in the most diverse cities in the country, met a lot of people and learned early that we must always be open to absorb knowledge. Thanks for the opportunity to be at JLL, a company that represents a family. I lived practically half my life here, built friendships and became the professional I am today."
"In 2021, I complete 16 years at JLL, always working in Facility and Property Management. Throughout all these years, I worked with great professionals and built lifelong friendships, always with respect, sharing knowledge and willingness to make things happen working as a team. I love being part of the JLL family!"
"When I started my journey, JLL operated only with the Property Management service. I did not imagine that our company would help to build and develop the real estate market and that our professionals would grow together. Today, JLL is a reference and sets trends. We do not simply offer services, but complete and integrated solutions for the real estate. As we are a technology company focused on the real estate market, future solutions can be revolutionary."
"I started my career at JLL in November 2016, on my birthday. I started working as a Property Manager and then, in 2018, I accepted the challenge of being responsible, together with the Board, for the department's strategic planning and direction. In almost five years, I have met amazing people, made great friends and I am sure that, even in a challenging moment, we will continue to be creative and efficient, adding value and positively impacting our customers, employees and communities."
"My story started in 2011. At 39 years old and with two children, I was hired to work in the area of Projects and Works. I stayed two years, when I had to make a personal choice and decided to work closer to my children and home. I always kept in touch with the people of JLL, until I received a message saying that there was a place for me, in case I wanted to return. With the older children, I had no doubt. I went through the selection process and here I have been for more than six years, working at Tétris with an incredible team and helping to build our customers history."
"I have been here for 23 years and, despite many challenges, it is gratifying to see how much I have grown, personally and professionally. During this period, I met people who taught me a lot, and I hope to continue contributing forever."
"In almost 10 years, JLL has allowed me to grow both professionally and personally. Working for the Hotels and Hospitality team brought me great friends, allowed me to travel to countless places in Brazil and welcomed me as a 'Chilean' during my stay at the Santiago office. I can only be thankful for the support in all aspects of my life and for the companions I had and continue to have throughout this incredible journey."
"I completed my first spring at JLL in 2016 and since then, it has been almost six years of many projects and a continuous learning process. I started working in an FM (Facility Management) account and, after two years, I took on new responsibilities, and my biggest achievement was to enable and implement the Centralized Sourcing & Procurement Model in Brazil. I hope to further enhance the value of the supply chain for the different customers and businesses of our company."
"My story at JLL started in February 2011. Since the interview, I met a serious, solid company with great employees, who decided to bet on me. I had a first pass, I left JLL to pursue another challenge and two years ago I was given the opportunity to 'come home'. Every day I learn something different and become a better professional. I'm sure that the reinvention will be constant, always focusing on people, innovation, and with a lot of technology."
"My journey at JLL began during the COVID-19 pandemic, working remotely and without being able to meet my colleagues in person. Even so, I realized from the beginning the importance that the company gives to people and the ambition that exists to build a better world for everyone. Being at JLL is like being part of a family that works as a team, with ethics and excellence to shape the future of the real estate market. I am sure that the next 25 years will be one of many achievements and ambitions achieved."
"I started working at JLL 17 years ago. I accepted the invitation for a great opportunity and, even after so long, it seems like yesterday that I took my first steps here. May 25 more years of great success and innovation come!"
"I started my journey at JLL in May 2013, as Administrative and Financial manager at Corporate Solutions. In almost eight years, I am happy and proud to be in a company that I admired before I could even be part of. Here, in addition to developing professionally, I also have the chance to evolve personally, participating in affinity groups (BRGs) and, more recently, Building a Better Tomorrow. These are personal and professional values that generate great satisfaction and fulfillment in order to always seek to achieve new ambitions."
"Since I joined JLL, it's been almost 13 years of partnership, trust and a lot of learning, living with great professionals and friends. Certainly, JLL made me the professional I am today, because it is a company that values its people. I am very proud to wear this shirt and be part of this family."
"It's been 22 years for JLL, and the time seems not to have passed. When I arrived, the company was still taking its first steps in Rio de Janeiro. Seeing how much we have grown, I can only be thankful for being encouraged to always give my best and to have helped to make a difference in each achievement. Here, I learned that nothing is as contagious as the example and, therefore, I start working every day with dedication, ethics, joy and responsibility as if it were my first day."
"I have always looked for a company that values my potential and provides a perspective for my career. Nine years ago, I was fortunate to be hired by JLL and I remember it as if it were my first contract today, as an analyst. Today, I am in charge of a big contract and I am very grateful to the company for the professional I have become."
"In 2014, I discovered my pregnancy during the first month of work at JLL. Initially, I was very insecure to give the news to my managers, but I was very well received by the area director and my companions, who congratulated me and said that they were very happy. At this point, I understood the attitude and respect for women and their challenges, in addition to the company's plans for my career. I continue with great gratitude for all the years."
"In 16 years, JLL has provided me with several opportunities for growth and development, both personal and professional. Here, I feel at home, made great friends and managed to develop."
"I have been with JLL for more than four years and it is a great pleasure to be part of the 25 years of the company in Brazil. During my career, I have worked in several places, but JLL is different in the way it cares for employees. Safety, ethics and an incredible job of Diversity and Inclusion are part of the company's DNA and demonstrate the respect that exist with people."
"It has been 17 years of walking at JLL, always sharing learning, planting opportunities and reaping recognition. It is all about partnerships with my leaders, my peers, our customers and partners. May the next 25 years be even better!"
"I joined JLL in 2013 and initially stayed for three years. Then, in 2017, I had the opportunity to return with an invitation that made me very happy. I am passionate about my work and very grateful to the management of the contract in which I work, as we work as a team and I hope to remain in the company for a long time."
"Joining JLL was a huge professional challenge. Today, I realize the importance of being part of the company for my career in the marketing area. In addition, I was very well received by the people I work with today, and that certainly makes JLL very successful."
"What a pride to be part of JLL for 10 years! Every day, we are challenged to be better, overcome obstacles and face challenges with courage. Here, there are consolidated values, and the feeling that together we will go further is what fuels my passion for JLL."
"My story at JLL started in December 2018. Looking for a replacement in the Facility Management and Maintenance area, I had an opportunity and was received with great affection, being welcomed by those responsible for the dynamics and, later, by my co-workers. I am very proud to have won the trust and admiration of our customers, always bearing the name JLL."
"In my professional life, I have always taken care of people's physical integrity, but five years ago I discovered a new vocation. At JLL, I have respect, reciprocity and learn every day to guarantee trust and quality to our customers."
"With the pandemic, my area of activity was greatly affected. In search of an opportunity, I did an interview at JLL, but for a different role than I used to do. I identified with the company and, later, I received the invitation to work as an electrical assistant in one of our contracts. Gradually, I grew professionally and became an electrician, a role I still hold today. I always seek to act bearing the name and respect of JLL, a company that recognizes its employees and, above all, provides the best services."
"I joined JLL a year ago and it has been a great challenge. It is gratifying to realize the daily learning that you accumulate working with trained people and companions."
"When I joined JLL in 2002, I had little experience, but a lot of willpower. From the beginning, I realized that it is a company that supports and empowers its employees, and I am the proof of that, as I have developed a lot over the years. I am very proud to be part of JLL, a visionary company."
"I started my career at JLL in 2008, staying initially for three years. After a period in another experience, I returned in 2013 under one of our contracts. I am grateful for the opportunities I received, for the daily learning and for the friendships I built during this journey. In the future, I expect a lot of work and even more professional growth."
"I started my career at JLL almost seven years ago. It is comforting to know that the company has ethics as one of its pillars, which is in line with what I expect from an organization. All of this brings even more vision of success and integrity to a long-term horizon."
"JLL has been part of my life for over a decade. Here, I fulfilled dreams, achieved my ambitions and keep developing year after year. I am proud to have JLL in my history and to be part of the company's first 25 years of presence in Brazil."
"There are more than 22 years wearing the JLL shirt, and a path of satisfaction and glory achieved. The most rewarding thing is to be able to experience every step of the company's enormous trajectory alongside formidable people. It is a pride to be part of the JLL family."
"I always had the ambition to be able to work at JLL, a company that I admire a lot. Here, there are clear positions on inclusion, diversity and culture, and I am proud to say that I am part of the group of people who work to turn dreams into reality."
"Since I started my career at JLL, I have always witnessed a welcoming and, at the same time, challenging environment, which always makes me go beyond my best. Being able to work with amazing people from all over the world is a great pleasure and a pride. With this spirit of always improving ourselves, I look forward to another 25 years of great success."
"When I joined JLL in 2002, I had little experience, but a lot of willpower. JLL is a company that supports and empowers its employees. I am proof of that, because I have developed a lot over the years. I am very proud to be part of a visionary company."
"I started my career at JLL in 2018, but I have always been an admirer of the company. Today, as an employee, I am very happy, as I receive opportunities to grow and develop, being able to write a success story. Congratulations, JLL Brasil!"
"I started my career at JLL in January 2019 and, since the selection process, I already felt part of a big family. It is a company that allows me to develop professionally and have great opportunities to show my work."
"I started my journey at JLL two years ago. I love being part of a structured company, as I work alongside excellent professionals, who help me achieve my ambitions every day. I just have to thank you for everything."
