Barclays takes stop-gap offices for 700 Glasgow staff
Buchanan Wharf will house 2,500 staff
Barclays is taking on a 700- desk office site in Glasgow as it prepares for wider expansion in the city.
In July last year the bank announced it will build a campus in Buchanan Wharf, Tradeston, delivering significant regeneration and doubling the bank’s Scottish workforce from 2,500 to 5,000.
With Barclays’ other Glasgow offices at full capacity the bank is renting additional space at Princes House on West Campbell Street.
Scott Stewart, Scotland Site lead, described the new location as a ‘stepping stone’. He added: “With phase one of our new world class site at Buchanan Wharf arriving in two years’ time we need to start making additional headroom now as we grow our numbers.”
