Barclays to build Glasgow campus to house 2500 tech workers

Barclays is developing a huge campus in Glasgow that will house up to 2500 new employees from the bank's functions, technology and operations teams.

Having secured a £12.75 million funding package with Scottish Enterprise, Barclays is buying the 470,000 square foot campus development at Buchanan Wharf from Drum Property Group.

The bank says the new site will see it double its workforce in Scotland, with staffers housed in a campus packed with cutting-edge technology and design aimed at fostering innovation and collaboration.

Paul Compton, COO, Barclays, says: "The Glasgow campus, alongside others in Whippany, New Jersey, and Pune, India, is part of a global strategy to create world-class facilities for our functions, technology and operations teams."

The Scottish Enterprise funding grant is on condition that at least 42% of the new jobs will be "high value", and at least 341 will be for disadvantaged workers or those who have a disability.
