Location Spotlight: Glasgow
This month, the Sanderson spotlight is averting its attention to our newest office location; Glasgow. As the tenth Sanderson office launch and the second to emerge in Scotland, we have good reason for this expansion. Craig Bryce, Regional Manager, tells of his business aims, regional history and his personal love of our new Glaswegian home.
What are the reasons behind this new expansion?
The opening of our 10th regional office in Glasgow is part of Sandersonís regional expansion strategy throughout the UK market. Moving into Glasgow is the perfect way to build on an excellent five years in Edinburgh where we first entered the Scottish market. Having experienced huge year-on-year growth in Edinburgh as well as being consistently ranked as number one supplier by our customer base, it seemed only right to keep growing our opportunities in a really promising area.
Why do you believe in business in Glasgow?
There are many reasons that Glasgow is an exciting business location for us. We have seen in Scotland as a whole a real resilience to dips and lows in economical performance. Continually our labour market reports show either consistency or rises in salaries, placements and vacancies where some economies are lowering.Glasgow is a firm attraction for developments in transport, infrastructure, sustainability and digital capacity. These are all major players in a cities business performance and really evidence the fact that Glasgow is not only expanding but competing.
What is the Glasgow office aiming to do and what sectors will you be targeting?
Glasgow has a very strong technology and business change sector which only shows signs of growing so there is a real need for a genuine Change partner in the area. When you add to this our story of how we entered the Edinburgh market and have grown our market share against the same competitors we will face in Glasgow we have a very compelling case for adding value with our clients and canít wait to showcase what we can deliver. A local presence will give us the base to strengthen relationships with existing clients making sure we are getting coverage across all areas and also to forge new relationships with key target clients.
What do you love about Glasgow?
The thing I love most is how proud Glaswegians are of Glasgow and how proud we are to come from here. I think you notice different things when you spend a big chunk of time away from your home city and since coming back to Glasgow from our Bristol HQ one of the things Iíve noticed is a huge increase in the number of tourists visiting the city. When you wander down the street and hear locals being asked for directions or giving an answer to a question they never just give the answer! It turns into a 15 minute conversation about who they are, where they are from and what else they should be doing whilst in Glasgow which I think reiterates the pride we have in our city and how welcoming we are to visitors.
