BDO LOOKS TO EXPAND WITH A NEW OFFICE
Accountancy firm BDO has moved into a new 8,000sq ft office in Glasgow as part of ongoing plans to expand its team
The firm has signed a 10-year lease at 2 Atlantic Square where more than 130 staff will be based. BDO said the move is a key part of plans to invest in the future of its operations in Scotland, delivering a base for its growing team which has added more than 20 trainees in recent months.
Head of BDO Martin Gill said: “We’ve achieved significant growth over the past 12 months because of the resilience and ingenuity of the ambitious clients we work with.
Despite the current challenges around rising costs and a drop in consumer confidence, there’s still plenty of opportunity for businesses. Our investment in our offices, talent and technology mean we are best placed to help businesses navigate the months ahead.”
As part of the move BDO’s shared service centre has established a presence in Glasgow, building on operations in Liverpool where a team of specialists support BDO colleagues throughout the UK. The centre is comprised of 500 specialists supporting BDO colleagues throughout the country and providing support for data analytics, tax compliance and processes.
Nigel Britton, head of shared services, added: “We’re already establishing a team of talented people in Scotland who are developing their careers within a global accountancy and business advisory firm in a huge variety of roles.
Working with all our offices across the UK network, we look forward to continuing to build on these foundations and providing the quality and service BDO is renowned for.”
