Accountancy firm BDO is looking to create 150 new jobs in Liverpool after trebling the size of its city centre office.
BDO is expanding the space it occupies in Temple Square from 5,500 sq ft to 17,085 after agreeing a new 10-year lease on the premises, located between Dale Street and Victoria Street. It currently employs 100 people in the building.
Over the next three years, BDO aims to enhance the capabilities of the Liverpool office through a partnership with a numbers of institutions across Liverpool and continue to play an integral role in the growth of BDO nationally.
Mark Sykes, partner in Liverpool and head of BDODrive in the UK, said: “Liverpool has proved itself a real success story as a city and for BDO in recent years.
“With access to some of the best universities in the country and a business community boasting some of the most vibrant start-ups and globally renowned businesses, we look forward to the future success of this office”.
BDODrive – which is a blend of BDO’s advisory services, expert teams and technology platforms – was founded and developed from the Liverpool office before it was rolled out across the UK.
It was brought to market to help predominantly SME businesses take a “more proactive approach to address any concerns in their business”.
Mr Sykes added: “The way people work is changing and our workplaces must reflect this. Our entrepreneurial clients need us to be connected in every sense – to wider expertise within our firm, to other countries within our network and to our local business partners- to be able to help them succeed.
“The new office along with our on-going investment in our team and technology will allow us to evolve with our growing and ambitious clients as their business needs evolve.”
