KPMG will create up to 400 new jobs in Glasgow for its second UK Managed services hub. The firm has already hired 50 individuals and will hire additional 150 people starting June and up to 400 over the next three years.
Catherine Burnet, senior partner for KPMG in Scotland, 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."
She added: "Managed Services is a relatively new offering and we see significant growth potential as clients across sectors increasingly have to rapidly respond to changes in regulations in areas such as finance, technology, data handling and privacy.
"Additionally, there's a real demand for bulk data analysis, which enables organisations to make more informed and smarter business decisions in a more efficient manner.
"Managed Services effectively answers those calls by quickly mobilising large teams, using the most appropriate technologies and processes, and combines them with our specialist insight to deliver a cost-effective and quality service.
