Edinburgh-based consultancy Infinity Works has announced plans to double its workforce in Scotland to meet rising demand.
To support the next stage of its growth plans, the business has now committed to creating a minimum of 25 new permanent roles in Scotland this year.
The new recruits – including mobile engineers, service designers, analysts and delivery leads – will be phased in over the next 12 months and will focus on organisations in Scotland.
Pete Cotton, director at Infinity Works, said: “Scotland has a burgeoning digital sector and we’re committed to helping it grow by offering exciting career opportunities.
“We’ve been impressed with the quality of technical talent in Edinburgh and are looking forward to expanding the services we can offer to our customers.
“Coronavirus has acted as a catalyst to accelerate digital transformation initiatives and business consulting will have a critical role to play in the UK’s economic recovery,” he added.
Since setting up a practice in Edinburgh in 2019, the firm has delivered digital transformation programmes for some of the nation’s most-recognised brands, including major players in the Scottish financial services sector.
As part of its commitment to supporting Scotland’s technology sector, Infinity Works has also joined the not-for-profit organisation ScotlandIS and has become a member of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
Jane Morrison-Ross, outgoing chief executive of ScotlandIS, commented: “Infinity works plans for growth are welcome and bring with them the opportunity to help more businesses with their transformation journey. We’re delighted to have a company with such great ambition join our membership.”
Infinity Works also plans to offer places in spring this year to people in Edinburgh looking to start a career in tech via its in-house academy.
The 12-week programme provides opportunities for people from a wide range of backgrounds and prepares them for a future role in the tech industry.
