Darlington HR consultancy expands with new team members and offices

A North East HR consultancy has announced that it is creating new jobs as it further expands its presence in the region.

We Do HR, based in Darlington, is a family business that was established in 2003 as a one-man operation.

The company, which now has a team of seven, is creating two new jobs, and is aiming to create more as it continues to grow.

The growth of the team is also driving the company’s relocation to new, larger premises at Business Central.

Hannah Ross, managing director, commented: “I’ll never forget the day I joined. I’d just finished college and was unsure where to go from there and my dad offered me the chance to work with him.

“His exact words were: ‘be willing to learn, work hard and be honest with the clients as this is what makes us successful.’

“We’ve kind of found what I would consider a sweet spot in how we develop and grow, and that’s upskilling our staff and giving them the training they need to drive the business forward.

“Over the next couple of months, we’ll be promoting staff who joined us in junior roles and as a result we’ll be taking on two new recruits who will hopefully go on to do the same.

“One of the reasons I believe we’ve been so successful so far and have achieved such growth is the fact that we pride ourselves on our core values of honesty and integrity, ensuring everyone is treated fairly, both the employers we work with and their employees, and this is why we’re so keen to develop our own careers, as well as those of our clients.

“Having set up the business in Darlington and being born and bred here, we always said we’d love to continue investing in the town and are delighted to be expanding our presence at Business Central.

“It’s a fantastic centre right on the East Coast mainline, with easy access to the A1 north and south and is home to a tight-knit community of businesses who all go out of their way to help one another, as well as granting us access to meeting rooms for when we need privacy for managing our client’s HR issues or delivering training programmes. It’s absolutely perfect for a company like us.”

Vanessa Wood, centre manager at Business Central, said: “To see We do HR grow from a small, family-owned HR consultancy to a fast-growing SME is fantastic and we’re delighted to have been able to support them on their journey.

“Their passion for their work, as well as for Darlington and the wider North East, really shines through when you speak to them and we would like to wish them all the best for the future.”
