Company Information

Our organisation was created in 1990 as a vendor of integrated modelling software to the oil and gas industry. Since then we have built up a hugely successful business with more than 450 clients across the world, ranging from small consultancies to major multinational corporations. In our last trading year the company turned over £66m and has significant cash reserves which are to be held for future expansion.


In this regard, we see an exciting future which embraces the challenges around energy transition technologies and renewables. In addition, we see huge scope in applying the lessons that we have learnt within this industry to other sectors, notably mining, banking, and medicine.


With this in mind, the company is on the cusp of a major expansion. Part of this involves the relocation of the headquarters from Edinburgh to Guildford in Surrey, to take advantage of the improved travel links, recruitment possibilities, and links to London. An office has been purchased and is currently being refitted. We plan to be staffing this office from September 2024, with it becoming the company headquarters in September 2025.


PE Limited currently has 85 staff, split roughly between technical support, providing solutions for customers, product development, and contract and licensing administration. The technical staff are all highly qualified, with almost everyone having at least a Masters qualification and many holding PhDs.


Within a comprehensive package we also offer an annual performance bonus, an excellent pension to which the company will match up to 10% of all employee contributions, private health and dental insurance, and other benefits.
