A direct marketing company has announced plans for up to 200 jobs to be created in Glasgow – further cementing the city’s reputation as a fantastic place for business.
Aquira, which has recently opened a new Pacific Quay sales centre, has already created 60 new roles. News that a further 140 could be created will certainly be well received by job seekers in the area.
The positions are being created in a number of different areas at the company too. This includes the recruitment for new consumer-facing and consumer support roles.
The managing director of the company, Marilyn Barnes, was eager to explain the decision the company has taken in opening up the new facility. She said:
“Glasgow has a growing reputation as a great place to do business. That’s why we chose to invest here.”
Barnes went on to commend the workforce and the growing commercial status of Glasgow.
It is a fact which a growing number of firms have recognised too, Many Scottish companies have been working with Glasgow factoring companies to free up cash flow for the recruitment of new staff in new premises.
The opening of the new facility and the creation of the jobs was welcomed by Alex Salmond.
The first minister said it represents a significant boost to the economy. He also went on to say it was not a surprise that the country’s biggest city had been chosen for the new sales centre.
The opening of the new Aquira centre was made possible partly through Scottish Enterprise funding to the tune of £500,000.
