Big Partnership has continued its expansion with the opening of an office in Dundee – the PR agency’s fifth in Scotland and seventh UK-wide.

The move follows the launch of a Manchester base just two months ago, as the agency secured contract wins worth £250,000 in the city and has set its sights on winning some £150,000 of new business in the first year in Dundee.

Existing clients in and around Tayside include entrepreneurial support organisation Elevator, Dundee Rep Theatre and technology spin-outs from the University of St Andrews, SA Instrumentation and Photosynergy. These will all be serviced from the firm’s new office at City Quay.

Zoe Ogilvie, director at Big Partnership, said: “We have strong ties to Dundee, with a history of working with clients in the city, as well as in Fife and Perthshire. Opening permanent premises here widens our offering to a city which has huge potential.

“Dundee is in the middle of a £1 billion regeneration, which is expected to create more than 7,000 jobs, see the opening of an international centre of design and herald a major redevelopment of its train station. With further plans to open more hotels, bars and restaurants, it’s the perfect time to be launching a base here.”
