With almost 600,000 residents, Glasgow is the most populous city and largest economy in Scotland.
Its diverse workforce includes both an above-average percentage of highly trained workers (40% with NVQ4+) and a large base of untrained labourers (16% with no qualifications). Reflecting this educational distribution, about one-fifth of employees here hold professional occupations, while roughly 10% work as skilled tradesmen. Another 8% are staff in sales and customer service positions, and 9% work in administrative or secretarial capacities.
The Glaswegian economy
Historically known as a centre for shipbuilding, Glasgow has about 23,000 manufacturing jobs - nearly a quarter of which are dedicated to ship production. With more than 900 local media companies operating here, Glasgow is home to several industry leaders - including BBC Innovation Labs - and has about 16,000 jobs in the sector. But Finance and IT, along with the city's large Public Sector, account for the highest percentage of employment opportunities. While the Public Sector offers 130,000 positions, the Finance and Banking Industry has grown by an estimated 60% since the mid-1990s, and now supports about 1/3 of the city's workforce.
