Europe’s largest domestic alarm provider has announced it will create 1,000 new jobs in the North East with the relocation of its headquarters.
Verisure UK Services Limited is investing £3m in a new base at the Quorum Business Park in North Tyneside.
The firm will create 1,000 new jobs with the opening of the new offices, including roles in customer service, technical support, field operations, training, IT, telesales, HR and finance.
Verisure’s managing director, Gabino Sanchez, commented: “We have chosen North Tyneside as the ideal location for our new site after deep analysis of more than 15 of the UK’s larger urban areas.
“It stood out for many reasons including the friendliness of the people, the incredible quality of life and the high standard of education.
“This is a very exciting time for Verisure UK. Our growth and our success has moved us forward towards expansion.
“This new facility will give us the room to reach our goals while ensuring we continue to provide a best-in-class service to our growing customer base.”
