A recruitment agency has expanded with a new Tees office.
Gateshead-based Westray Recruitment Consultants has opened an office on Stockton’s riverside.
Westray, which has been operating in the North-East for 28 years, says it aims to change the “poor perception” of the industry from the inside out.
The relationship between Westray and Teesside started back in 1990, with the first Westray office opening on Albert Road in Middlesbrough before relocating to Tyneside.
Returning to the Tees Valley represents a first step in an ambitious growth plan, the firm says.
Westray currently works with a number of clients in the Tees region, including various blue-chip organisations.
Commercial director Ashleigh Wright said: “We are very excited to be opening our Stockton branch, which will provide greater geographical reach to clients and candidates across the North East, further enhancing our exceptional recruitment service.
“Not only does our new office help our current and future clients, but it will also help in getting more people into work.
“Our growth plans aim to sustainably grow our business, meaning there will be opportunities for us to grow our own headcount.”
