Expansion for support firm
Multrees turns to apprentices as company expands
Chris Fisher: ‘confidence’
Multrees Investor Services, which provides support to wealth managers and private banks, will be hiring more apprentices to help fill vacancies.
The company, which has £11 billion of assets under administration, has negotiated new tenancy terms on offices in Princes Street where it intends to build on its 80-strong staff which are relocating from the corner of Castle Street and George Street.
Chief executive Chris Fisher is turning to the firm’s apprenticeships programme as a route to tackling a shortage of digital skills.
The company, which also has an office overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral in London, is committed to employing “more apprentices than ever before” to help meet demand in areas such as data management and operational analysis.
Mr Fisher said: “Our new central Edinburgh office reflects our confidence that we can continue to grow our profits by winning new client relationships, building our assets under administration, and expanding our own team in both our Edinburgh and London locations over the coming years.
“Apprenticeships can secure a pipeline of talent for both our business and the industry as a whole, and so far it has been a great investment, with 75% of our previous apprenticeships still with Multrees four years after our initial programme.”
