On the official opening of the site, David Turner said: “Our new CityPark hub is a world class facility designed to keep our clients’ customers at the very centre of everything that we do. To do this, we needed to create the best quality environment for our people.
“The new space will allow us to continue growing the business whilst further supporting the local economy by providing employment opportunities for people in Glasgow and beyond.
“Our people are at the centre of everything we do so as new members join the team, they will find that our customer experience centres are more than just workplaces. We offer a vibrant, fresh and collaborative work place geared towards learning and career development.”
