The global human resources firm, Ceridian, has officially opened its new UK headquarters at Braehead and has promised to create 300 more jobs.

The company has relocated from nearby Hillington in a £16m investment, plus £1.83m from Scottish Enterprise.

Ceridian, which employs about 300 people, said it planned to double its workforce over the next three years.

The firm provides HR services to clients including Asda, Whitbread and RBS.

The new jobs will be in HR administration, payroll processing, finance and expense management.

The company's IT development and technical support teams will also be based at Braehead.

The new high-tech offices were opened by Enterprise Minister Fergus Ewing.

He said: "The decision to expand the Scottish operation, which is now its largest centre of excellence in the UK, is testament to the quality and skills of the local workforce and the reputation and strength of staff."

Managing director of Ceridian in the UK, Doug Sawers, said: "Our new UK flagship location near Glasgow is a showcase for our entire payroll and HR outsourced services, which are all now under one roof."

He added: "We have named the new state-of-the-art building Sonas.

"In Gaelic, Sonas means good fortune, prosperity, passion, success, enjoyment and happiness, truly embodying what every Ceridian colleague working there believes in."
