A DIGITAL tech company is to be set up in Glasgow providing 100 new jobs which is a much-needed boost to the city’s economy.
AND Digital is launching its second club in Scotland, to be located in Glasgow’s George Square.
This follows the rapid expansion of its first club in the country which is based in Edinburgh, which opened last year.
The digital tech consultancy will offer jobs for analysts, developers and designers in a range of different levels, which is needed after the impact that COVID-19 has had on Glasgow.
Glasgow’s unemployment rate sits at 5.3 per cent, against a national average of 4.3 per cent, therefore AND Digital will help boost the city.
Paramjit Uppal, CEO and founder of AND Digital said: “Scottish businesses have shown tremendous grit and determination over the past 12 months as they have sought to reconcile their business models to the difficulties posed by the pandemic.
“However, we’ve been fortunate to work with clients of all shapes and sizes who have pivoted towards the new opportunities digital offers. Scotland is an important market for us and we are confident in its very bright future. Glasgow is the obvious next step for us.”
He added: “We launched our Edinburgh club at the cusp of the first lockdown and have built it from the ground up working remotely as a club and with our clients.
“While we look forward to reopening our club houses and seeing each other in person when it is safe to do so, we are well placed to launch Glasgow to our blended working environment. It works for us and our clients.”
AND Digital aims to help businesses close digital gaps by working together with clients to boost their digital products and to further cyber knowledge.
During the pandemic, a total of 73% of businesses moved to digital platforms to provide goods and services, the help of AND Digital has facilitated this shift at an accelerated rate.
AND Digital works with a variety of different sectors including media, retail, telecommunications, the public and the hospitality sector.
The company was awarded the third best company to work for in Scotland this year by the Best Companies to Work For list.
