JPMorgan to create 500 new IT jobs in Scotland

For Hire

JP Morgan has underlined its commitment to Scotland with plans to create up to 500 technology jobs in the next three years.

The Herald reports that the banking giant has recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of opening a European technology base in Glasgow.

The workforce there is now more than 1,000, having grown by around 200 people across the past 18 months.

The bank now hopes to grow that by 50% over the next few years as a result of rising demand for software and new technology products.

Paul Murphy, managing director of the Glasgow European Technology Centre, said: 'We have got just over 1,000 and have been growing significantly over the past couple of years. We have got plans over the next two to three years to get to about 1,500'.
