SThree, an international recruitment company, is creating a 200-job support service centre in Glasgow.
The company, founded in London in 1986, provides contract and permanent recruitment services in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) industries and operates across 40 offices in 16 countries.
Alex Smith, SThree’s chief financial officer, said: “Investing in Glasgow gives us access to a highly-skilled workforce and an excellent business infrastructure.
“The STEM markets in which we operate are growing rapidly and this new centre in Glasgow will strengthen our operational capability and support expanding teams across our main markets.
“In making this new investment in Glasgow, we have had tremendous support from the Scottish Government and SDI.”
The £1.1 billion revenue company is being lured to Scotland with a £2 million Regional Selective Assistance grant from Scottish Enterprise, which will see SThree create a total of 314 jobs for Glasgow over the next three years.
Paul Lewis, interim chief executive at Scottish Enterprise, said: “It’s fantastic to see a company like SThree, with a strong focus on STEM industries, expanding in Scotland.”
