This forms part of an overall £22 million investment by Cherwell — £8.9 million of which has been allocated to Scotland — to develop new and cutting-edge technologies at its Dundee R&D facility to allow businesses of all types to automate services across their enterprises, driving efficiency and productivity.

Graeme Dey, Scotland’s minister for parliamentary business, said: “I am delighted that this £3.1 million Scottish Enterprise grant will result in 40 new jobs in Dundee — a city that is fast becoming one of Scotland’s leading technology hubs.”

Cherwell chief product officer Josh Turpen said (www.cherwell.com): “It is an honour to have received this support from Scottish Enterprise, which has enabled us to continue our expansion in Scotland — and in the Dundee area in particular.

“As our growth accelerates globally, our Dundee R&D centre has proven itself to be a boon for our engineering efforts, with highly skilled talent available from a thriving tech hub.”

Scottish Enterprise director of trade and investment Neil Francis said: “We are thrilled that Cherwell, as a global leader in software technology, has taken the decision to expand its operations in Scotland.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Dundee and the surrounding area to harness high-value jobs and enhance the region’s reputation for computer science.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the team at Cherwell to deliver its growth ambitions.”
