An energy consultancy is looking to expand its workforce following its move to the borough.
Utilitywise, an energy and water consultancy business, has begun a recruitment drive as it looks to expand to 1,4000 employees by 2016.
The company, which relocated to Cobalt Business Park last year, is recruiting for several positions including energy consultants and customer care managers.
Chief executive Geoff Thompson said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be opening up job opportunities in the company at our home in the north east.
“Since I set up the business as a three-man band it’s flourished at a rate greater than I could have imagined.
“More space in our new premises and more staff will hopefully see Utilitywise go from strength to strength in the next few years.”
