KPMG has announced it is to open its second UK managed services hub in Glasgow, creating 400 new jobs.
The new jobs will be created over the course of three years, with 50 already in place, 200 set to arrive in the immediate future, and another 150 starting in June. Up to 200 further jobs are expected to be created by KPMG as it expands its Scottish operations.
KPMG said it had decided to open the second hub in Glasgow due to the firm’s “recognition of the depth of talent in Scotland”. The accountancy firm currently employs about 1,050 staff in Scotland.
Catherine Burnet, senior partner for KPMG in Scotland, said: “Managed services will play a key role in the firm’s growth in Scotland. We recognise the country has a real depth of talent feeding in from its schools, colleges and universities, as well as an established financial services sector, and we want to harness those as part of our long-term strategy.”
