Up to 240 jobs are being created in Scotland’s biggest city by a clinical research firm, it has been announced.
ClinTec International said it is locating its global headquarters in
Glasgow, creating the new posts over the next three years.
The new site will be the company’s base for its worldwide human resources, finance, IT, marketing, legal, corporate development, and sales functions.
There will also be a team of clinical professionals who will manage clinical drugs trials.
The move is being supported by a Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) grant of £1,343,000 from the Scottish Government.
Dr Rabinder Buttar, president and founder of ClinTec, said: “We have reached an important milestone in the ten years of our organisation and I am pleased that our Scottish operations will play a central role as we develop into a major global player in contract clinical research.
“From the key universities and research institutes in Scotland we will recruit, train and develop a highly skilled talent pool to work on our global initiatives meeting the high standards expected by us and our clients in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.”
ClinTec International was founded ten years ago to develop and manage drugs trials combating a variety of diseases.
It currently employs around 200 people and has a presence in 30 countries.
