Goodwin lands a job

SIR Fred Goodwin has returned to the business world as an adviser to Edinburgh-based architectural firm RMJM, 15 months after Royal Bank of Scotland was brought to its knees by his profligacy while at the bank’s helm. Goodwin, who will be paid in line with RMJM’s other advisers, will be tasked with supporting the firm’s international expansion strategy, a role largely focused on China and the Middle East.
