CITY COUNCIL


Jobs & Business Glasgow’s (JBG) aim is to stimulate economic


development by improving the resilience of the city’s business base and increasing the competitiveness of the city’s residents in the labour market. The organisation was established in 2011 to deliver economic development activity on behalf of the city. JBG is a registered charity which employs more than 500 people offering a range of enterprise, business development, employability and training services from over 20 community-based venues located throughout Glasgow. The company has seven nurseries and two after-school childcare facilities, making it the second biggest childcare provider in the city. JBG is also landlord for nearly 500,000 sq ft of office space, business centres and workspace across the city. 2012/13 was a significant year for JBG’s efforts to


support enterprise activity in Glasgow. The company assisted 465 business start-ups and supported 316 social enterprises, which helped to create 655 new jobs in Glasgow. Also, JBG supported more than 3,000 Glasgow residents into work during the year. These achievements highlight JBG’s increasing importance in the city’s economic development efforts. Recent research commissioned by Jobs & Business Glasgow points out that it is very well placed to provide a focus on helping micro- businesses (businesses with fewer than 10 employees) to grow. JBG creates a virtuous cycle that promotes the growth of micro-businesses and ensures that those seeking work have the necessary skills and attitudes to contribute to this growth and gain sustainable work.
