New social security agency to be based in Dundee and Glasgow, creating at least 1,500 jobs, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced in Dundee.
The agency will be headquartered in Dundee, with the jobs split evenly between the two cities.
The First Minister said:
I’m delighted to confirm that Dundee and Glasgow will be the locations of the new social security agency. Establishing headquarters in Dundee demonstrates our support for the city’s ongoing regeneration. Having two sites will ensure that economic benefit is spread between the east and west of Scotland and across the cities’ neighbouring areas.”
