4. New office launch
Over the past 10 years, the rapid growth we have seen is a result of us being a people-orientated business.
In 2020, we relaunched our Glasgow office, Spencer Ogden’s 11th global office and our third office in the EMEA region.
The premise of this office is to allow Spencer Ogden to take advantage of the natural growth opportunity that Scotland presents in the sustainable energy sector.
The office relaunch will continue the expansion of our global operations and support Spencer Ogden’s growth journey and part of that is looking at growing headcount in 2021. Glasgow is a city with five universities, creating great opportunity for potential consultants to join the business.
