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.
