Onshore still growing - Lloyds TSB

I'm determined to cover more than the onshore/ offshore argument, but I couldn't resist commenting on this story.

Lloyds TSB (one of the UK's big four banks) is looking today to hire 150 people for its Glasgow call centre. The Glasgow operation is already a 1,000 seat centre and even if these are seasonal hires, it's still a significant investment.

The financial services sector has been one of the big generators of off-shore stories (see regularly HSBC in the UK or ABN Amro for the Netherlands), so good to see the alternative being represented.
