Global management and technology consultancy Capco plans to add more than 100 people to its Scottish team over the next year or so.

Bosses at Capco, a Wipro company, said they were looking to meet rising demand for digital transformation and data-related services from local financial services institutions.

The firm will be expanding its current team of 270 permanent consultants through 2022 and into 2023. All the roles will be based in Scotland, servicing financial services clients principally based in the Central Belt.
