South Tyneside HR firm set for growth with 70 per cent turnover and new appointments
HR Dept Newcastle is on its way to break a record 70 per cent turnover increase this year as the company looks to expand its operations throughout the region.
The firm, based at its Boldon Colliery head office, has also confirmed the appointment of an additional full-time senior HR advisor to cope with increased demand for its services.
Having launched the company four years ago, its director Jayne Hart has said HR Dept Newcastle’s client base is now made up of over 350 North East based SMEs who come to the firm to access affordable and outsourced HR solutions.
Jayne Hart said: “2018 is going to be a period of continued growth for HR Dept Newcastle and we’re really looking forward to adding further value to the diverse clients we support.
“We are keen to establish ourselves further in the manufacturing and technology sectors and have recently started working with clients such as hedgehog lab and Roundel Kitchens, both very successful North East businesses in their own right.”
To accommodate the company’s growth in the region, the newly appointed senior HR advisor, Danielle Chaplin, has joined the business having worked for the likes of BAE systems, Warburtons, Northern Rock and Northumbrian Water.
Hart added: “Danielle joins us at a very exciting time and has a background in providing outsourced HR, especially in the manufacturing industry, an area we’re keen to further explore and develop.”
HR Dept Newcastle has said it will look to further develop its service offering this year and will invest in further HR advisors to help and assist cross-sector SMEs and startups in the region who don’t have the time or the means to invest in their own HR team.
Hart said that the company will be working with more startups and scaleups in 2018, planning to continue to invest in more staff to provide increased support on site.
HR Dept’s latest recruit, Danielle Chaplin, added: “I’m looking forward to working with our SME client base and supporting them with their people issues.
“Given the growth of the manufacturing sector in the region, I hope that my previous experience can be put to good use. I love the small business ethics and the family feel that you do not get in bigger organisations.”
