Yorkshire recruitment agency heads north

South Yorkshire specialist recruitment agency Provide Education is expanding into the North East following a period of substantial growth.

The Barnsley-headquartered firm, which also has offices in Brighouse and Worksop, is opening a new office in Teesside this summer.

Its latest base will be in Billingham, where the expansion will create three new internal jobs.

From this new branch, Provide Education will work with schools and job candidates across Middlesbrough, Stockton, Cleveland and Redcar, Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Newcastle, and Sunderland.

The office will be headed up by senior branch consultant, Casey Bullen, who currently works at the head office, and Amy Kiely has been appointed as a recruitment consultant.

The agency is currently advertising for a recruitment administrator and the team is set to grow as more schools and teachers are signed up in the area.

Ms Bullen said: “It’s an exciting time for the company, and I’m really pleased to be given the opportunity to head up the new office. I’ve had so much support since I started with Provide back in 2014 and I’m looking forward to relocating from South Yorkshire and leading a new team in the North East.”

Established in 2006 by recruitment specialist Katie Buckle and former teacher Barry Simmons, Provide Education began by working with 30 schools, and that figure has now grown to over 500, with the firm employing 21 staff across four offices.

Katie said: “We’ve had a lot to celebrate this year, and launching the new office is a fitting way to mark our tenth anniversary. We’re confident that Casey will do a great job of managing the business in the North East and we’re very proud of how far she has come since joining us as a trainee.

“Provide Education has had a fantastic few years but we’re not resting on our laurels; in fact, we’re already looking at expanding into other areas of the north.”
