Torgersens Chartered Accountants creates jobs in Sunderland office move

An accountancy firm is creating jobs in an office expansion.

Torgersens Chartered Accountants wants personal tax and audit and accounts staff to bolster its new Avalon House base, in Sunderland.

The company has switched from the city’s Norfolk Street and says its new site, on the banks of the River Wear, will help charge future growth.

Martin Johnson, a partner at Torgersens, which was founded in the 1970s and has further bases in Jarrow and Gosforth, said: “This is an exciting time, with the move to fantastic, new premises and three high-quality jobs immediately on offer.

“We are building a strong, cohesive team across our three offices with staff that support and encourage each other.”

The office opening was celebrated by Patrick Melia, chief executive of Sunderland City Council, who briefed Torgersens partners and staff on the authority’s regeneration plans.

Patrick added: “News of multinationals creating huge numbers of new jobs, or the announcement of large infrastructure programmes, naturally capture the headlines.

“But, alongside this, is the army of firms that are a vital part of the business environment and who, between them, deliver thousands of high-quality new jobs every year in our region.

“Torgersens very much falls into that category.”
