Leyton to create 50 jobs with new Glasgow office

29 Oct 2018

Global R&D innovation funding specialist Leyton is expanding in the UK with the opening of a new office in Glasgow, in response to growing demand for its expertise in securing R&D tax relief.

Leyton's new offices, located at recently refurbished Lomond House on George Square, will service the company's growing portfolio of clients in powerhouse Scottish industries such as oil and gas, renewables and agriculture.

The new office is led by David Kent, Leyton's Head of Scotland, who launched the firm's Scottish operations in 2015. Leyton currently employs a team of 50 and is looking to create a further 50 new job opportunities from graduate level to senior tax experts, technical consultants and sector specialists over the next two years.

David Kent said: "Our expansion in Glasgow reflects the increasing demand from companies in the region to secure R&D tax credits to support and drive innovation and reach their full potential."

Leyton employs more than 180 employees in the UK, working for many of the UK's leading innovation businesses, including FTSE 100 companies and SMEs and to date has a 100% success rate at submitting claims on behalf of clients.
