Most banks are questioning the value of offshoring to India, so why is RBS moving more than 100 Scottish jobs there?

It’s not a good day to be working for RBS at Gogaburn. As has been widely reported, the bank is scrapping 120 posts at its Edinburgh head office (and 95 elsewhere) while creating 250 new jobs in India. A further 83 temporary staff in the UK are having their contracts terminated. The move will mostly affect accountants working in the finance division, including Edinburgh-based accountants providing finance services to RBS’s investment bank. [Scotland]

The M&A job market in Japan seems strong in the long term, but finding a job as a foreigner now is tough

The M&A outlook seems positive in Japan as local businesses are expected to take advantage of an appreciating yen by acquiring more companies overseas. There were 800 cross-border takeovers in Japan last year, valued at US$89 billion – the highest number of these transactions since 2000, according to Bloomberg. Its report last month also cited both Citigroup and Nomura as being eager to boost their cross-border M&A teams, although no further details were given. [Japan]
