AN accounting firm has opened a new 'modern' office at a 'prime' riverside location in Worcester. 

Ballards Accounting Firm has launched a new 'modern' office in Waterside in Diglis, its third in the Midlands this year.

The latest addition will also be occupied by Four Squared Recruitment, Ballards' sister company.

It follows the opening of offices in Birmingham's Cornwall Buildings on Newhall Street and Elmley House in Droitwich earlier in the year.

The Worcester office opening is a strategic move by Ballards to solidify its foothold in the Midlands and better serve both existing and prospective clients. 

"We are delighted to open our third office in the Midlands this year, further cementing our presence in the region," said James Syree, CEO of Ballards.

"This expansion demonstrates our unwavering dedication to growing our services and supporting the local business community.

"We look forward to forging strong connections within the Worcester community and contributing to the city's economic growth."
