Barclays has unveiled plans to create up to 2,500 jobs with the setting up of a new hub in Glasgow, which will house the bank’s technology, functions, and operations teams.
The Buchanan Wharf campus development on the banks of the Clyde will house the new teams.
The BBC said the offer requires at least 42 per cent of the new jobs to be “high value”, with at least 341 posts made available to disadvantaged workers or those with a disability.
Paul Compton, the chief operating officer at Barclays, said: “The Glasgow campus, alongside others in Whippany, New Jersey, and Pune, India, is part of a global strategy to create world-class facilities for our functions, technology and operations teams.
Nicola Sturgeon added: “The new campus will strengthen Glasgow’s financial services sector and shows Scotland continues to be a highly attractive location for inward investment.
“I am particularly pleased that as part of this investment, Barclays has committed to employing local people who often face barriers into work, including those with disabilities and young people.”
