A Leeds-based company is preparing to open a new office in North Tyneside – creating 40 jobs in the process.
Central heating specialist Help-Link UK Ltd, which employs more than 700 staff, is moving to Cobalt Business Exchange thanks to support and help from North Tyneside Council’s business development team.
Mizan Rouf, business developer officer at the council, said: “The company is creating a number of skilled jobs in North Tyneside and with its ongoing success; we look forward to supporting the company with its ongoing growth plans.”
Mel Butler, Help-Link managing director, said: “The opening of the office in North Tyneside is part of our strategic growth plan.
“The area has a lot to offer and is the perfect location for our Energy Services division due to the readily available skilled and experienced workforce.”
The company, which opened in 1998, is an approved installer of boilers through the government backed ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme which was launched to help deal with fuel poverty in the UK.
