Baker Tilly says Manchester relocation will boost jobs and growth

Baker Tilly bucks trend of job cuts in the profession by announcing hiring plans for new Manchester office

The head of Baker Tilly’s Manchester office has predicted that its £1.25m
relocation to a new office in the city will result in significant growth.

Baker Tilly currently employs about 125 staff in its Manchester office and
expects this number to rise by about 10% this year. The firm relocated to its
new office between Christmas and New Year.

Baker Tilly’s tax and management consultancy business lines have been
identified as areas of potential growth.

Mark Blakemore, office managing partner, said boosting the Manchester
office’s annual turnover of £12m was achieveable, despite the effects of the
economic downturn.

‘We expect our office move to be a catalyst for significant growth over a
five-year period,’ Blakemore told the Manchester Evening News.

‘Although 2009 will be a challenging year for the economy, the significant
investment we have made in the building and continue to make in our staff
reflect the confidence we have about our business and our clients,’ he said.
