Australian Multinational Computershare Chooses Edinburgh for New 300+ Tech Department

Infrastructure
Global financial services company Computershare has chosen Edinburgh as the home of a new Global Technology Centre that will support its operations around the world.
 
The Australian company’s move will mean the creation of more than 300 high-quality technology jobs in the Scottish capital, with the team providing day-to-day technical services for over 16,000 staff members based in 90 offices in 21 countries. 
 
Stuart Irving, global President and CEO of Computershare who grew up and began his career in Edinburgh, said: “As a truly international capital city Edinburgh has a bright future and is a natural home for a global company.
 
“As a growing business we need the skills and hard work we see on offer in this city, and we’re looking forward to welcoming our first new recruits to join our technology team.
 
“We are grateful to the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International (SDI) for helping us with our plans and are looking forward to our continued partnership.”
 
Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, said: “This announcement, with the creation of 300 highly skilled technology jobs and investment in the city centre, is fantastic news for Edinburgh’s economy. 
 
“Scotland is open for business and continues to be a very attractive location for investment, as evidenced by the recent EY Attractiveness survey, which noted that Scotland was the top UK location for foreign direct investment outside London for the fifth consecutive year.  
 
“Together with the inward investment figures published by SDI, this offers further evidence that we have the skills and expertise to attract and retain global companies like Computershare.”
 
Computershare works with around 16,000 global clients and their 125 million customers, and has had a small office in Edinburgh since 1998.
 
It describes itself as a “global leader” in financial services and data management, including managing share registers and complex transactions for many major companies around the world.
