Campbell Dallas expanding to accomodate new apprentices and graduate trainees
Accountancy and business advisory firm Campbell Dallas has announced a significant expansion of its office space in Glasgow to accommodate new apprentices and graduate trainees.
The firm is expanding its Glasgow office at Braehead by 4000 sq. ft with the capacity for up to 80 staff.
The internal transfer of 30 staff from the existing ground floor offices together with 15 new apprentices and graduate trainees being recruited in 2019 under the firm’s ‘Earn and Learn’ next generation development programme will account for around half of the additional space.
Since 2013, Campbell Dallas has recruited 119 apprentices and graduate trainees, including a record intake of 13 school leavers joining in 2018.
In addition, a recruitment drive for additional professional staff at all levels is expected to see the extra space fully occupied by the year end, taking staff working from the Glasgow office to more than 200.
The firm is investing over £250,000 on the installation of utilities, cabling, technology, work-stations and office equipment.
Peter Gallanagh, partner in charge of the expansion, said: “The extra space will be a huge asset to the Glasgow office, which has seen double digit organic growth over the last five years. The additional capacity will allow us to continue our strategy of investing in our people, the latest technology, office systems and mobile working facilities.”
The announcement comes on the heels of the merger between Campbell Dallas and Scott Moncrieff, creating a firm with a combined fee income of around £40 million and employing over 500 staff working from 10 offices.
