Recruitment company sounds vote of confidence in North-East England
Steve Guest, managing director at TechConsult
A recruitment company that places workers all round the world has announced the location for its latest expansion - its own doorstep.
TechConsult UK Ltd, based at the Wilton Centre, plans to increase its staff with a major priority being to secure more clients based in the North-East of England.
TechConsult UK, which operates within the offshore, fabrication and maintenance, process, shipbuilding, and civil engineering industries, believes there are plenty of job opportunities for skilled men and women.
It provides clients with workers including engineers, technicians, project managers and administration personnel, most of them from the North-East of England.
Managing director Steve Guest, said: “We are seeing growth and potential in sectors such as oil and gas, sub-sea, construction, marine and renewables, and want to take advantage of the good things that are happening in the North-East.
“We already send workers to the likes of Australia, the United States and across Europe and now we are expanding with the intention of securing more placements in our own backyard.”
The Wilton Centre operation is part of the Norwegian-based TechConsult Group, whose offices are in Bergen, Oslo and Stavanger, Norway, and four people are employed on Teesside.
Mr Guest said: “We hope, as part of our expansion, to employ three further people by the end of the year.”
