Engineering firm Halcrow is to create 100 new jobs in Glasgow over the next two years. The firm made the announcement as part of its move to new premises in City Park. The 'highly-skilled' full-time jobs for graduates will be implemented over the next two years. Halcrow currently employs 285 people in Glasgow. Donald Bell, director of Halcrow's Glasgow office, said: 'Following continued growth, our move to these fantastic new offices at City Park demonstrates the success of our team in Glasgow and our confidence in the future of the city.'

Paul Martin, the Glasgow Springburn MSP, said: 'Halcrow is a company with an excellent reputation and a worldwide pedigree and I'm delighted that they have chosen to create these new jobs in our constituency.'

The firm said it had seen strong growth in recent years, fuelled predominantly by its involvement in water, transport, property and environmental projects.
