Glasgow is the powerhouse of the Scottish economy – the cultural, sporting and academic heart of Scotland and one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. Key growth sectors include Creative Industries, Digital Technology, Higher Education, Financial and Business Services, Tourism and Events, Retail, Health and Life Sciences, Low Carbon and Engineering, Design and Manufacturing.

Forming Scotland’s main transport hub, Glasgow is blessed with excellent road and air services and the largest suburban rail network outside London. The City and surrounding area offer access to a well-trained and well-educated workforce courtesy of 3 universities and 3 super colleges.

The 2017 ‘Mercers Quality of Living Survey’ sees Glasgow beat Rome, Prague and Dubai to be named as one of the best cities in the world to live.
