Concentrix creates 500 new Scottish jobs
Concentrix, a global leader in high value business services, has created a new complex in Inverclyde and 500 full-time jobs with the help of £2.1 million Regional Selective Assistance (RSA).
Concentrix have significantly increased their UK investment with a new global delivery centre designed to support their portfolio of multinational clients.
This project sees the creation of a new 22,000 square feet centre in Inverclyde’s Faulds Park business complex overlooking the River Clyde. Following the announcement of 1,000 new jobs in Belfast, it further proves the company’s commitment to investment in the UK – and takes its worldwide team to more than 50,000 employees.
