BDO is set to welcome 60 employees to its newly remodelled Edinburgh office at City Point, Haymarket Terrace. The accounting and advisory firm invested in a major refurbishment to better accommodate future hybrid working among its staff.
The firm’s ongoing investment in Scotland will support future growth of the 175-strong team. This news comes on the back of BDO’s announcement of a new ten-year lease, committing to more than 8,000 sq. ft. at 2 Atlantic Square, York Street in Glasgow, which the team will move in to in August this year.
BDO’s approach to new ways of working means more staff are choosing where to work from week-to-week and teams are keen to come together again in a physical space. As such, its Edinburgh 6,600 sq. ft, space has been designed with more areas to work collaboratively – as well as a visual refresh – which will create an inspiring workplace for colleagues and clients. As well as more collaborative working areas, it also includes state-of-the-art technology to support hybrid meetings and multi-locational events.
Martin Gill, head of BDO in Scotland said: “For us to be able to support the ambitious, growing businesses that we partner with as clients, we know we need a working environment and culture that attracts and retains the brightest, most ambitious talent. As such, we are committed to creating a more flexible and remote working model, which has seen BDO invest £10 million in technology and more than £8 million to repurpose our UK office spaces. This is just one in a series of positive investment announcements in the Scottish market as we look to create jobs and support sustainable growth of our clients and our own business over the coming years.”
