Green energy firm to create raft of new jobs with office expansion
A green energy broker based in the North East is set to create new jobs with its move to larger premises.
The Green Energy Advice Bureau has acquired an additional 9,300 sq ft office in Sunderland after outgrowing its existing premises at Port of Tyne.
The firm, which specialises in procurement, management and sustainability services for businesses, is set to open the new larger base at Hylton Park alongside its Port of Tyne office, creating a raft of new roles as a result.
Ricky Chaplin, chief operating officer at The Green Energy Advice Bureau, explained: “2019 was a fantastic year for us with record sales figures and growth in customer numbers.
“To help support this growth we have invested in new systems, technology and the acquisition of our office at Hylton Park will help create a better employee experience, which will enhance performance and lead to an altogether better customer journey.”
Naylors Gavin Black agreed a five-year lease with the organisation for the riverside unit on behalf of property owner UK Land Estates.
James Fletcher, commercial agency surveyor at Naylors Gavin Black, who brokered the deal, commented: “This is a modern, refurbished suite in a sought-after position that will provide ample room to help The Green Energy Advice Bureau achieve its ambitious growth plans.
“It’s been fantastic to work with such a forward-thinking company and I look forward to seeing it develop from its new base in Sunderland.”
David Gibbs, commercial director at UK Land Estates, added: “Green Energy Advice Bureau’s new premises are well located next to the new Spire Bridge, making Hylton Park a gateway office scheme for Sunderland City Centre.
“Like all of our estates, it is a fantastic place to work with retail and leisure right on the doorstep. We look forward to seeing the business thrive on the estate and continue to go from strength to strength in the months to come.”
