Financiers 'needed' in Glasgow
There is a financial jobs boom in Glasgow, according to new statistics.

Figures from Joslin Rowe show that 2,930 new permanent positions were created in the finance sector in Scotland over the third quarter of 2007.

Up from the 2,050 jobs created in the same period last year, most of the new positions are accountancy or investment vacancies in Glasgow.

Joslin Rowe director Margaret Dyer commented that the credit crunch and sub-prime crisis does not seem to have affected firms in the country.

Furthermore, those applying for jobs in the area are being offered tempting remuneration packages.

"Rather than starting bidding wars, hiring firms are enticing people on board with increased benefits and tailored career progression," she said.

She added that the accountancy employment market is currently very "hot".

"Strong candidates are receiving multiple offers and are often finding a new position within just weeks of starting their search," she stated.

It was discovered recently by allthetopbananas.com that the average advertised salary in Scotland is the second highest in the UK, beaten only by positions in London.
