Sanderson Celebrates Five Years in Scotland

Posted: 4th October 2017

Sanderson, the UK’s largest independent IT and change recruitment organisation, celebrated a successful fifth year of operations in Scotland this week.

The business, which specialises in the financial services and IT sectors, opened its office in Edinburgh in 2012 to better support its banking, financial services and utilities clients, most of which have headquarters of major bases in Scotland.

Sanderson have since expanded into Scotland with a second office in Glasgow opening in February of this year. Both Scottish teams work with a number of high-profile brands in Scotland and have reached an annual turnover of £25 million in just five years.

The firm puts its success down to understanding and creating solutions for the large separation and integration programmes taking place across both Scotland’s financial sector as well as other Scottish corporates.

Andrew Morton, Scotland Regional Director, said: “It’s a very interesting time to be involved with the teams heading up financial instructions within Scotland as the pace of change in line with growth is astronomical.

“We pride ourselves on having the insight and capabilities to help our clients drive these ambitions and strategies forward by also working with a very talented and dynamic group of contractors.

“Scotland remains at the top of peoples lists as a desirable and competitive place to work and we are looking forward to growing our reach and relationships even further in the year ahead.”

Jon Ball, Managing Director of Sanderson, said: “It was a very proud moment for us to open our first office in Scotland and now, as we enter our sixth year we have a second office under our belts to help drive things forward.

“We are in a privileged position being part of the growing jobs landscape in Scotland and look forward to continuing our work with some of the finest employees, contractors and clients in the area.”
