HSBC to create 200 jobs in Scotland

June 19, 2014

BANKING giant HSBC is creating more than 200 jobs across its businesses in Scotland.

The bank said the investment in new employees will help its Scottish operation connect with customers and help businesses expand at home and overseas.

The company will take on more than 100 new project staff in its HSBC Security Services businesses in Glasgow and Edinburgh and 85 permanent and fixed-term personnel in its Hamilton contact centre.

It will also employ around 20 more people in its Corporate Banking department across Scotland and create a new private banking team in Aberdeen.

Alison McGregor, chief executive of HSBC in Scotland, said: "HSBC's role in Scotland is to support growth in the Scottish economy. This is a very positive sign for Scotland and HSBC."

HSBC said it has seen significant growth in Scotland in the past three years. The bank already employs more than 3,300 people in Scotland and has increased its branch footprint and headcount as part of a pound(s)20 million investment programme.

Lena Wilson, chief executive of Scottish Enterprise said: "This expansion is testament to the attractiveness of Scotland as a location for international corporations."
