Welcoming the Edinburgh launch, Opencast chief executive Tom Lawson said: “We’re excited to be launching our latest city hub in Edinburgh, both for our people located there and for the new business opportunities that the city offers.
“A new recruitment campaign in Scotland should see the numbers of our people needing access to the new Edinburgh hub in the next 12 months increase to around 40. We want to recruit the best from Scotland’s rich digital talent pool, adding to our growing UK-wide presence."
Tom added: “We chose Spaces for our city hubs as they allow us to offer our people across the county facilities and experience similar to our Newcastle HQ, regardless of their location."
