Pursuit said it is seeking to recruit a further 70 employees this year and grow its office footprint in Scotland and overseas.

The business opened its first European office in Malaga in April and now has around 180 staff across its two sites.

Founding director Patrick Byrne said the company is “evaluating options for larger office accommodation in Glasgow, as well as additional offices in Europe and potentially the US or Canada”.
