A NEW 20,000 sq ft office in Preston will be the home for 200 of Baker Tilly’s north west staff.
The new office is part of the firm’s plans to expand in the area, where it is looking to double the size of its business in the region over the next three years.
“We expect to invest significantly in new talent from around the region so that we can further enhance our services to clients, helping them achieve their business goals as the UK economy picks up,” said Baker Tilly north west regional managing partner Jill Jones.
“Strategically, Preston is a great location in the centre of Lancashire which will allow us to continue to provide excellent service to our existing clients and offer local businesses a full service accountancy practice focused on SMEs which has true strength and depth.”
Nine partners will also move to the new office.
