SCC, which currently employs 44 people north of the Border, has invested a six-figure sum in new Scottish headquarters, located at Interchange Business Park in Livingston, West Lothian. The move is expected to create “dozens” of jobs, as part of ambitious long-term growth plans, with the company targeting 20 per cent growth in Scotland this year and 40 per cent over the next five years.
The group currently generates about £38 million of revenues in Scotland. SCC was founded by Sir Peter Rigby in 1975 and opened its first Scotland office, in Glasgow, in 1986. It has grown to become a £3 billion international group, employing more than 3,000 people in the UK.
The company works extensively across Scotland, most notably in the public sector, with a significant presence in NHS Scotland for more than 20 years, as well as in education and emergency services. It has built up a sizeable commercial portfolio, supporting mid-market businesses in the legal and professional, energy, transport, manufacturing, utilities and financial services sectors.
Lindsey Hunter, country manager for Scotland and Northern Ireland at SCC, has been appointed to lead the local business. She has worked for the group in various customer-facing roles for more than two decades.
