Accountancy firm Azets has announced plans to double the size of its Scottish business by creating 250 new jobs during the next five years.

The firm, which specialises in the small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector, reported turnover of more than £60m.

It now employs around 500 partners and staff in Scotland since rebranding last year, with expansion plans focusing on growth via a multi-million pound investment into a digitised, hybrid working environment.

Staff are being encouraged to work from anywhere, following investment into the infrastructures and systems to support the move.

Azets is also upgrading the network infrastructure of its eight offices across Scotland.

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.”
