Proact adding 50 new jobs at Lanarkshire base
Thu, 7 Jun 2012
Storage integrator and cloud services enabler Proact is to create 50 new technology jobs at its European Operation and Support Centre based in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire.
The expansion is supported by government agency Scottish Development International, a partner agency of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), including a Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) grant.
The company is looking to expand and develop in both the UK and wider Europe, and is “targeting skilled technology professionals with management, customer service and technical expertise”, including at graduate level. A recruitment fair is due to be held by the firm on 14 June in Glasgow.
Danny Quinn, the company’s head of managed cloud services operations, comments: “Receiving the RSA grant means we can take advantage of the available workforce in Scotland and offer ambitious professionals the chance to build a long-lasting career with us.”
“We’re looking for people with talent, enthusiasm and an eagerness to grow. At Proact we think differently and we’re looking for ‘Proactivists’ who embrace our hands-on mentality.”
Scottish government enterprise minister Fergus Ewing says: “The decision of this growing technology firm to create new jobs highlights the talent we have in this industry, and also Scotland’s attractiveness as a place to do business.”
