KPMG To Create 400 New Jobs In Glasgow

Professional services firm KPMG is to create 400 new jobs in Glasgow with the opening of a new managed services hub in the Scottish city.

The 400 vacancies at KPMG’s new home in Glasgow will be phased in over the next three years with roles on offer to include analysts, data gatherers and managerial positions.

Some of the KPMG positions will be graduate vacancies in Glasgow, with 50 of the jobs already filled. A further 150 vacancies will come on line at the new hub this June, with the potential to add an extra 200 jobs before the end of 2022.

The new Glasgow jobs represent a substantial increase in KPMG’s headcount in Scotland. At the end of their last financial year end, the accountancy and audit specialist employed around 1,000 staff in the country, so the new recruitment drive will see them add 40 per cent to their headcount in Scotland in a relatively short time frame.

Explaining why they were investing in Glasgow, a senior partner for KPMG, Catherine Burnet, 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.”

“Our latest investment follows a strong year in Scotland, where all parts of the practice delivered a positive performance,” added Ms Burnet.
