North East energy consultancy sparks major recruitment drive
A North East energy consultancy is expanding its operations with a major recruitment drive on South Tyneside.
Tritility, enables businesses to take control of their utilities, including gas, electricity, and water services using online tools.
Founded in 2019 with a team of four, the business has since expanded into a 150-strong workforce with a further 100 jobs planned over the next 12 months.
Tritility opened its second office space in Jarrow due to outgrowing its initial workspace in Washington.
The company’s headquarters now also accommodates the Kickstart Training Academy in partnership with Sunderland College. From May 2021 the Kickstart Academy has opened its doors to 46 trainees who have undergone several months of training.
Jamie Wyatt, director at Tritility, said: “It has been an incredible two years of growth for Tritility – what started as a team of four in 2019 has grown massively into a 150-strong workforce and this is only the beginning. At Tritility, our employees are at the heart of everything, and we have ambitious expansion plans over the next 12 months including over 100 new job opportunities.
“Our new office premises in Strathmore House will aid that growth further due to the excellent transport links and opportunity for further space in Jarrow.
“With energy prices at an all time high, those businesses that are ahead of the game will reap the rewards of negotiating their energy contracts. Two of our largest clients save over £2.5million between them last year.”
Cllr Mark Walsh, South Tyneside Council commented: “I am delighted to see Tritility expand its services into South Tyneside and bring job opportunities to the Borough. Young people in the area will especially benefit from the Kickstart Scheme and it is great to see this business continue to flourish post-pandemic.
“We look forward to seeing Tritility grow further over the next 12 months, bringing further opportunities to South Tyneside.”
