Atos has opened a development and innovation centre in Moray, where the IT services giant may create 200 jobs.

The firm said the facility, on the Forres Enterprise Park, would deliver secure IT development and testing services to support a range of public and private-sector clients across Scotland and the UK. It said its investment in the base had created 50 high-value jobs, with the potential for another 200, and further strengthens its commitment to Scotland. Atos team members were temporarily based at the ex-RAF Kinloss base before the move.
