HSBC To Create 500 New Scottish Jobs

HSBC, the British banking giant, has announced plans to create 500 new jobs in Scotland over the next few months.

HSBC already employs 4,000 staff in full and part time roles in Scotland, but the new recruitment drive will see them increase their headcount in the country by more than 12 per cent before the end of March 2018.

Edinburgh and Hamilton, South Lanarkshire are two locations which have already been revealed as set to benefit from new HSBC jobs.

HSBC will expand the global risk arm of its business in Edinburgh and will create customer service jobs in Hamilton.

HSBC Scotland’s chief executive, Alison McGregor, said: “This expansion programme spans different locations, skills and disciplines, supporting lots of communities in different ways. We are absolutely committed to helping businesses and individuals to achieve their ambitions.”

“The successful establishment of our global risk function demonstrates that Scotland has the talent we need and HSBC is a place that talented people want to work,” added Ms McGregor.

Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, welcomed the HSBC announcement, saying: “HSBC's expansion with the creation of 500 new jobs across Scotland is fantastic news for the economy. This is testament to our skills and expertise and builds on HSBC's significant business presence here. Scotland remains open for business and this announcement further demonstrates our position as a prime location for investment and growth.”
