Azets has revealed plans to create 250 jobs across Scotland before 2026, in a bid to increase growth by 50% in the region.
The accountancy group intends to upgrade its Scottish office portfolio, creating bases in Glasgow and Aberdeen.
The firm’s current offices are set to receive “multi-million-pound” upgrades, with its Edinburgh and Perth offices scheduled for “remodelling”.
In addition to the physical investments, Azets claimed that the growth plans will follow a “fully digitised, mobile-enabled hybrid working environment”.
Peter Gallanagh, chief executive for Scotland and the North, said: “Office life is changing rapidly and forever, as is the support needed by our clients.
“Our new offices will provide our staff with the space they need to deliver outstanding client service and where our clients can engage with our staff in the most efficient manner possible.”
He added: “Our investment and growth plan is heavily weighted towards organic growth, but we are also looking at further acquisitions, in particular niche firms that could bring an expertise or specialisation that will add value to our extensive public and private sector client base.”
Currently an employer of 500 partners in the area, Azets’ Scottish operations produce a turnover of roughly £40m.
