Careers

Welcome to Gall Robertson – a small but growing company of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors based in Tweedbank in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Director led and with a team of 18 people, we offer a full range of accountancy & business advisory services to a broad range of clients in key sectors such as agriculture & rural businesses; property & construction; manufacturing; healthcare plus entrepreneurial & start-up companies amongst many others.

The office is ideally placed for all transport links across the country. We’re adjacent to Tweedbank Train Station which runs a regular and efficient service to Edinburgh (journey times are less than 1 hour) and we’re also next to both the A7 and A68 – the major arteries connecting the Borders to all major conurbations North and South.
