UTILITY Alliance will create up to 200 new jobs after securing a deal to move into office premises in Sheffield.
The energy consultancy is recognised as one of the fastest-growing firms of its type in the utilities sector having set up in Hartlepool in February 2016 with a team of six staff.
The firm, which works on a business to business format offering savings on long-term gas, electricity and water bills, now has in excess of 200 staff working from its Hartlepool headquarters as well as Field Sales Executives around the UK.
The move to Sheffield is seen as the next stage of the company’s growth, and plans are already in place to secure premises elsewhere in the UK.
A recruitment drive is now underway for lead generators, closers and team managers as well as additional staff to work in HR and admin, with the aim of having the Sheffield office fully operational by August.
Darren Sutherland, Chief Operating Officer for Utility Alliance, said: “This is an exciting time for Utility Alliance, and the acquisition of the office in Sheffield is the next stage of growth as per our original business plan.
“We have looked at various locations across the UK for our second office, but Sheffield is a vibrant city with lots of exciting regeneration plans in place.
“We have been impressed by the support we have been given by Creative Sheffield, and Dean Hughes in particular has been a huge help to us as we have worked to get this deal over the line over the last few months.
“We are also grateful to Alastair Campbell from Campbell & Co who has taken care of negotiations on behalf of the building’s landlords.
“Utility Alliance looks forward to moving into Sheffield and being part of the area’s regeneration.”
Utility Alliance will be based at Waterside Court, in the Meadowhall area, after securing a five-year lease on the two-storey self-contained unit.
