Commenting on the recruitment drive, Tatton MP George Osborne said: "I was delighted to hear that Barclays are creating 100 new jobs at its Gadbrook Park site.
"I have visited Barclays’ local offices on a number of occasions and was impressed by the staff’s dedication to customer service. Cheshire is a great place to do business and I’m pleased that companies large and small share my view."
