Official government figures have confirmed Glasgow as an economic powerhouse, with 17,166 jobs being created in the city in 2005, a figure second only to London's.
The extra positions bring Glasgow's total number of jobs to 410,934, continuing a ten-year trend of strength in the jobs market.
The city's jobs growth rate of 4.4 per cent per year means that it is outgrowing even cities such as Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle.
Leader of Glasgow City Council Steven Purcell said: "We're outperforming our competitor cities across the UK with a vibrant, diverse economy which is attracting record investment and, in turn, creating record numbers of jobs.
"In the space of just one year, we've seen the number of jobs in the city grow by almost 20,000. This is outstanding news for not only Glasgow, but the west of Scotland, as we continue to attract jobs in record numbers."
Many of the new jobs were created in the financial or business sector, with around 105,000 positions across the city now falling into this category.
