The traditional heavy industries such as ship building and manufacturing have given way to industries more suited to the 21st century but Glasgow remains the powerhouse not just of Scotland but of the UK economy. A quarter of Scotland's largest businesses are to be found in Glasgow but there are countless small and medium-sized enterprises to be found here as well. Glasgow is now predominantly a city of service industries and tourism also provides many jobs. And watch out for jobs in the number of business parks that have sprung up around the city.
Between St Vincent Street and the River Clyde is the financial district of Glasgow. Here many international companies have set up offices or call centres including JP Morgan, esure, Morgan Stanley, Barclays Wealth and BNP Paribas. There are now more than 15,000 people employed in the district which is establishing itself as a world leader in the provision of financial services. The success of the district has in turn led to the creation of jobs in leisure, retail and catering industries.

With more than 2.5m people in the greater Glasgow area, there needs to be plenty of service industries covering public administration, retail, health and distribution. The service sector offers jobs for non-skilled and experienced or graduate jobseekers and includes part-time or seasonal work. Glasgow city Council itself employs more than 24,000 people providing services to residents and visitors. Other major employers in this sector include the city's four universities and the leisure/catering industries.
Manufacturing may have declined over the years in Glasgow but BAE Systems Surface Ships is one of the big shipbuilders still operating on the Clyde. They are heavily involved in the redevelopment of the Clyde Waterfront which is seeing millions of pounds of investment to boost the commercial, retail and leisure sectors and the creation of hundreds of jobs over the next few years.
The so-called Silicon Glen through the central belt of Scotland took a hit with the decline of the hi-tech economy post 2000 but computers are here to stay and the new media and information industries warm to Glasgow with its strong population base and proximity to University know-how. The likes of Linn Products, CC Technology and Spot Specific are just a few of the many Glasgow companies carving out a multi-media niche.
