Barclays is set to create up to 600 new jobs in Glasgow
The new jobs will be the latest created as part of ongoing expansion of Barclays presence in Glasgow, supported by a grant of up to 6.6 million of Regional Selective Assistance funding from Scottish Enterprise.
Keith Mason, Regional Director at Hays Senior Finance in Scotland, comments:
"The announcement that Barclays is to create up to 600 new jobs in Glasgow demonstrates that Scotland has the skills base, the infrastructure and experience to support a major resource project with one of the UKs leading organisations. A welcome boost for Glasgow, this news strengthens the argument that there are attractive jobs with market leading businesses outside of London. Indeed, Scotland is already viewed as a strong contributor to the financial services community in Europe.
This significant investment in Scotland could not come at a better time the Scottish marketplace is well-placed to provide companies such as Barclays with high calibre staffing, as a result of candidates relocating from major cities to seek an improved work life balance, whilst still making strides in their career, candidates keen to remain in Scotland and forge a career closer to home."
