Part Qualified Accountant

Who we are

xDesign partners with the UK’s most ambitious brands to accelerate their digital product and engineering delivery, with offices in the centres of Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, and London as well as remote employees based throughout the UK.

We pride ourselves on working closely and collaboratively with our clients to craft intuitive user experiences and valuable products across a wide range of industries, technologies, and clients. This has seen us work with the likes of Aviva, MoneySuperMarket, Tesco Bank and Flutter, to name just a few.

And it is this team of amazing people - and the great culture that we have built - that makes xDesign a great place to work. This combination saw xDesign ranked - for the third year running - in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2023 by Great Place to Work UK. Alongside this, we also placed top of the list for Best Workplaces for Wellbeing, 8th place in Best Workplaces for Women (within the large business category) and were recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Tech for 2023.
