We have relocated to one of UK’s major financial districts in the Georgian New Town (9-10 St. Andrew Square). This is a milestone for Criterion and reflects our continued role in supporting the financial services industry.  

First opened in 1962 as the Head Office of the Scottish Widows Fund and Life Assurance Society, the new Criterion headquarters is an A listed building, designed by renowned Scottish architect Sir Basil Spence.

Billy Burnside, Criterion’s Managing Director, commented:

I am delighted to report that Criterion has a new home. We’ve found a Regus serviced office that is ideal for our needs under the hybrid working model. 1962 was a key moment in the history of Scottish Widows. Wind forward 60 years, and it’s going to be a key moment in Criterion’s history and our new base. Another new start for us, despite running industry standards for over 30 years. The office is much smaller than we would need to house the full team, but the team has chosen hybrid working. We also have the flexibility to rent further space there when necessary, including access to a boardroom.

The move took place seamlessly at the start of December without disrupting any of our services. The team look forwards to welcoming any visitors to the new office.
