A leading North East recruitment consultancy has expanded its operations and relocated to new larger offices following a surge in business.

Elsdon Consulting, a leading specialist IT recruitment consultancy, which headed by director Louise Brooks, has moved from its Grey Street office to larger premises at Pandon Buildings on Newcastle Quayside.

The business has occupied the new space in order to accommodate its growing client base and team. The company also celebrated reaching a £2m turnover at the end of its most recent financial year.

The company, which was supported by Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents and BNP Paribas Real Estate UK in the move, has rapidly grown from five people to 26 in the past two years. The newly strengthened team also includes director John Reay and a management team of five experienced lead consultants which head divisions of the business.

Louise, who launched the company five years ago said: “This relocation marks a period of substantial growth for Elsdon Consulting and we are delighted that business is continuing to do so well.  The new offices will allow us to welcome new staff and clients as well as prepare for future growth.

“Our growth has been down to our ability to diversify into new and growing markets. We have a number of strong relationships with clients who have stayed with us since day one, and we are continuously partnering with new, innovative and emerging businesses. We aim to have repeat business with our technology-based clients and have been successful in doing so. Our success has also been thanks to provide an honest, reliable and specialist service.

“Our new office allows room for further expansion. We have an ambitious growth strategy in place which will see us aim to reach a turnover of £10m and a headcount of over 100 staff.”

Nicholas Bramwell, surveyor at Bradley Hall said: “We were delighted to assist Elsdon Consulting again in their expansion. We supported them a few years ago with a move to more central offices on Grey Street, Newcastle, which helped to bolster growth from five to 26 members of staff and increase its number of clients significantly. It is fantastic to see a locally based business grow and succeed and become a market leader in its field.”

Aidan Baker, Director at BNP Paribas Real Estate added: “Acting on behalf of Elsdon Consulting we assisted on agreeing the best market terms on a new 10 year lease that will allow the business to continue their rapid growth. The new quayside premises had been fully refurbished and will provide an excellent base close to a variety of other successful businesses.”
