Azets reveals 100-job plan for North East
June 16, 2021
An accountancy firm has unveiled plans to create 100 North East jobs.
Azets says it wants new staff to help fuel a five-year growth blueprint that includes taking turnover to more than £30 million.
It has also pledged to invest in its regional office estate to create a “fully-digitised, mobile-enabled hybrid working environment”.
Bosses say its regional vision – part of a wider aim to take on 650 people nationally – will include roles across areas such as audit and assurance, accounts and advisory business services, corporate finance, tax, private clients and restructuring.
Joanne Regan [pictured], North East regional managing partner at Azets, which has bases in Alnwick, Durham, Hexham and Sunderland, said: “The workspace is changing rapidly and forever, as is the support needed by our clients.
“That’s why we’re investing in a hybrid working model and encouraging our people to work from anywhere.
“Digitisation is key to our investment strategy as clients want top quality advice and rapid access to information at any given time, and staff want the flexibility and freedom to integrate work with their other commitments.”
“There has never been a better time to think about joining Azets as we look to capitalise on growth to date and accelerate the next phase of development.
“We are actively looking to add talented people to our team in the North East at all levels, from school leavers to partners and everything in between.
Joanne added: “The region is booming thanks in part to high profile investments such as Teesside freeport and Treasury North, and it’s a great time to join a growing firm with ambitious plans.
“Azets has a long tradition of recruiting and developing school-leavers and graduates and we’re proud to attract local talent from the region’s schools and universities.
“We want to ensure our staff can pursue their careers within the business and are supported in their ambitions, and this investment will support this.”
Azets has further offices in Crook, County Durham; Guisborough, east Cleveland; Seaton Burn and Wynyard.
