Jobs Boost With Expansion Of Travel Management Firm Within Shopping Centre


Twelve travel management jobs are to be created in East Kilbride.

Portman announced last week it will be bringing new jobs due to the Plaza Tower-based firm’s impressive growth.

The new jobs are in online, technical support areas and conference and events, and over 90 existing roles will also be secured.

All of Portman’s specialist operations have been amalgamated into the one operational centre based in East Kilbride.

John Dick, chief customer officer at Portman, said: “We are proud of what we have created in our East Kilbride office with staff recruited from local communities.

“In addition to our online and events teams, East Kilbride is also home to our out of hours operation, our medical repatriation business and our executive leisure travel team.

“We also serve the majority of Portman’s SME clients from the office and have our air fares unit based here.”
