The firm is relocating from its premises on the High Street to an open-plan office which will future-proof the firm’s presence in Market Harborough as it continues to expand and create jobs for local people, including a number of positions it is currently recruiting for.
The firm is now undertaking a complete re-fit of the 5,378 sq ft office, with staff expected to move into the property in September.

It will be only the fourth time that the Market Harborough-based team has moved during this time having been in its current office since 1960.
