National professional services company expands Tees Valley office with 25 new roles

Deloitte has announced a recruitment drive in the Tees Valley.

The firm will initially recruit for 25 roles in its tax business. Half the roles will be for technology professionals running a new digital platform that Deloitte is launching, CustomsClear, which automates the preparation and submission of customs declarations.

The other roles will be for marketing professionals who will work with Deloitte teams across Europe.

Stuart Cottee, practice senior partner at Deloitte in the North East, said: “This is the first time Deloitte has recruited for roles specifically based in the Tees Valley. We know that the area is rich in talent and has a proud history of its workers innovating, getting results and having an impact that spreads far beyond the region.

“Last November we held a conference, attended by over 100 organisations, to discuss economic growth in the region. We were so inspired by the opportunities discussed that we felt we needed to make our own contribution to economic growth in the Tees Valley by recruiting, initially for 25 roles.”

Mayor Ben Houchen said: “This new announcement from Deloitte is fantastic news and will see the firm join the growing number of companies making a commitment to Teesside.

“It’s thanks to the likes of the Darlington Economic Campus, which will see hundreds of top civil service jobs come to the region, that we’re attracting more and more big firms who understand the huge scope of opportunity here.

“By recruiting directly across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, this multinational firm is backing our region and its skilled workers. It’s also another example of how people can stay local but go far, and don’t need to leave their hometowns for big cities to secure good-quality, well-paid careers with prestigious organisations.”

Cottee continued: “I hope that our offering will attract people who want to work flexibly – sometimes in an office and sometimes at home. We find this hybrid model appeals to professionals who might be returning to work, have family commitments or simply want a better work life balance.

“I also hope our offering may encourage people who might have moved away from the area to relocate back here.”
