Frank Recruitment Group has launched its new headquarters at the St Nicholas Building, opposite the historic Black Gate in the centre of Newcastle.
The move comes at a time when the recruitment group is creating hundreds of sales jobs across most of its locations as part of its expansion in the UK and overseas.
In Newcastle alone, 100 new positions have been created, aimed at recent graduates, sales and customer service people from other industries, and European language speakers.
Frank Recruitment Group hopes to appoint these new hires into to company within the next two months.
The new office space, over three floors, has been fully refurbished and includes modern kitchen spaces and break-out collaboration rooms. The new location also features state of the art training rooms for the firm’s Frank University sales training programme.
Last year, the 19,000ft leased by Frank Recruitment Group was the second largest office letting of the year, and the company now has the space to house 460 employees making it one of the largest employers in Newcastle.
Previously, the company was split between three different sites, but now has sales and support functions operating under one roof.
James McDonagh, director of EMEA, said: “Bringing all of the teams into St Nicholas Building is already producing immediate gains.
“Having legal, IT, HR, marketing and the sales team under one roof means communication is far simpler, and we’re working more efficiently and effectively face-to-face compared to over email.
“The feedback from everyone has been fantastic so far, everyone is happy with the new facilities, they’ve all got smiles on their faces, and we’re helping to get great candidates into great jobs.”
