Ellis Whittam, one of the UK’s leading, fastest growing providers of HR, employment law and health and safety services has opened a new office in Glasgow.
Creating 35 new jobs, the £1 million investment by Ellis Whittam in its first Scottish office follows continuing expansion at the company’s Chester head office and underlines ambitious plans to grow its current Scottish customer base of 200 organisations. Allied to this are plans to expand the Scottish based workforce from 15 currently to 50 staff within the first two years.
The new Glasgow is opening officially today (Thursday, February 16th 2017) at an event attended by Councillor Archie Graham, Deputy Leader, Glasgow City Council.
Established originally in Chester in 2004, to offer high quality fixed fee support services, Ellis Whittam has grown to employ 175 people across the UK, supporting around 10,000 employers of all sizes from all sectors. The firm provides unlimited support, with clients able to use the services as often as they like, without worrying about extra costs.
Mark Ellis, CEO, Ellis Whittam said, “For us, Glasgow was the ideal base to launch our growth ambitions in Scotland. We estimate that less than 20% of organisations in Scotland currently use fixed fee professional support services and we know, from the growing demand for our services across the UK, that the market potential is significant. Over the next three years, we aim to treble our existing customer base in Scotland and our investment now in new infrastructure and new talent reflects our serious intentions to grow in Scotland.”
