Scotland to get 250 new admin jobs
Scotland is to benefit from more than 250 new administrative positions when broadcasting group BSkyB expands its operations in the country.

The media giant is to create a single centre of excellence for its back office staff in Livingstone, creating 255 jobs in areas such as administration and finance.

BskyB has had a presence in Scotland since 1989, currently employing more than 5,000 staff in various roles in the country.

The company chose Scotland for the new centre over a number of global locations including India and Ireland.

Scotland's deputy first minister Nicol Stephen welcomed the news of the new development.

He said: "Scottish Development International worked hard to secure this project and it is being supported by a Regional Selective Assistance grant from the executive of £800,000.

"This announcement is evidence of the company's confidence in what Scotland has to offer as a business location."
