North Tyneside HR firm set for expansion with additional office space

A North Tyneside HR consultancy has more than doubled the size of its offices as it looks to accelerate its expansion on the back of the economy’s reopening.

Sapphire HR has now taken additional space at the Mistral House complex on the Silverlink Business Park to accommodate its growing team.

Sapphire HR offers a fully outsourced HR service for businesses that either don’t have or choose not to have their own personnel teams, and has particular experience in the social care, retail, leisure and hospitality sectors.

Sapphire HR’s founder and managing director, Michael Dobson, commented: “The pandemic put an initial pause on our growth plans, but we’ve still managed to grow the business over the last year and want to continue in this direction over the coming 12 months.

“Mistral House has provided a solid base for the progress we’ve made so far and having ready access to the space we’re expecting to need for our expanding team is an essential part of our growth strategy.

“Even if the economy opens up on schedule, the disruption that’s been caused to North East businesses’ everyday operations is going to take a lot of time and effort for them to sort out and there are likely to be difficult situations arising as we all work our way back towards normality.

“Our new service has been designed to help regional employers address any evolving issues in the most appropriate ways and we’re expecting to see significant demand developing through the year as the true impacts of the pandemic begin to be revealed.”

Samantha Elliott, operations and business development manager at Mistral House, added: “I am pleased we were able to assist Sapphire HR with their rapid expansion plans through the flexibility of our office space on offer at Mistral House and look forward to watching Michael and the team thrive in their bigger and better space.

“We keep the office expansion process simple and straightforward to leave our clients free to focus on their business, rather than having to worry about anything related to the facilities or the office space we provide, and it’s been amazing to see companies here growing over the last 12 months.”
