New KPMG hub creates 400 jobs in Glasgow

15 Apr 2019

Up to 400 new jobs will be created during the next three years by KPMG after it announced Glasgow as the location for its second UK Managed Services hub.
The hub will see 200 jobs created in the short term, with a further 150 commencing from June - with a view to growing to 400.
Roles include data gatherers, analysts and managers from a wide variety of backgrounds, including modern apprentices, graduates and experienced professionals.
Based alongside KPMG's Tax Centre of Excellence at 123 St Vincent Street, where the firm has taken an additional two floors, the Managed Services team will carry out bulk due diligence processing and large-scale data analysis for customers, including handling regulatory requirements, complaints handling and customer remediation.

The decision to open the hub in Glasgow is underpinned by the firm's recognition of the depth of talent in Scotland, coupled with a robust financial services sector.

Catherine Burnet, senior partner for KPMG in Scotland, said: "We recognise the country has a real depth of talent, 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".
