Local businesswoman Jo Davies is enjoying a double business celebration.

Jo runs HR Alchemy and is one of the latest tenants to join the new business community at Commerce House in Middlesbrough.

The new office move coincides with Jo expanding the company by taking on a new member of staff, office manager Kath Holtom.

With 23 years’ experience of working in senior HR positions in various industries, Jo took the plunge to set up HR Alchemy and until now has operated the business from her home.

The business however has enjoyed so much success in such a short period of time, that Jo is now setting up in the city centre offices based in the stunning Grade II listed building in Exchange Square and growing the team to meet the demands of her clients.

HR Alchemy offers bespoke and personable HR solutions for start-ups and established businesses. Jo takes a unique approach to HR as she doesn’t believe in a “one-size fits all” approach.

The business thrives on quickly finding solutions to individual business’ problems, dissolving matters effectively, and allowing clients to get on with running their business.

Jo, from Marton, said: “Commerce House is a fantastic location for clients to visit and staff to work from. It’s a really exciting time for my business and for the area.

“I’ve always lived in the North East and I love the creative buzz that is apparent in Middlesbrough now.

“The new office and the other tenants there are really a hub of success and the support for start-up businesses like myself is second to none.”

Jo is also delighted to welcome Kath as office manager.

“Kath has worked with me previously in a variety of HR roles for several years and I believe she’s the perfect fit for the business,” added Jo.

“She has that personal touch with everyone she meets and I know she will always go that extra mile to help our clients.”

Commerce House has recently been renovated with a £1.2m investment and it offers office space; meeting rooms, hot desking and virtual office services.

There are still some offices remaining, ranging from two to 14-person spaces – for information on becoming a tenant or using the facilities at Commerce House please visit or call 01642 917 116.
