The Energy Service Centre (TESC), which was set up in May 2019, has enjoyed a productive year and despite the global pandemic.

Now, with light at the end of the tunnel for businesses in all sectors, TESC Managing Director Craig Storey has unveiled plans to fill around 100 positions at his Seaham-based headquarters.

Mr Storey said: “It has been a difficult year for many businesses in all sectors, but we have managed to perform extremely well thanks to the variety of products and services we can offer our clients.

“We have several avenues which are open to us which enable the customer to reduce their outgoings, and obviously over the last 12 months since the pandemic struck, we have all been looking at ways to save money.

“Now we appear to be coming towards a time where restrictions are gradually being lifted, we feel that as a business it is the right time to put our expansion plans in place and open our doors to new recruits.”

TESC operates in the business-to-business market, and offers clients services in energy, water, telecoms, waste management and merchant services.

The company also signposts clients to funding pots for mid-market firms as well as energy saving platforms to reduce costs and efficiency.

Roles will be available in a variety of positions centred around sales, and while experience would be welcomed, Craig and his business partner Elaine Elliott are keen to offer opportunities for the younger generation to take their first step on the career ladder.

Craig added: “We currently operate with 26 staff, and we are looking to significantly increase that headcount by the end of the year.

“We will welcome applications from across the board, though we are fully aware of the issue surrounding youth unemployment in this particular area.

“I have always firmly believed that if you give someone an opportunity to learn and develop correctly then they can really get to grips with a role and have a genuine opportunity to progress.

“Full training will be provided regardless of experience, and I would encourage any school leavers or apprentices who are looking to grab a real opportunity to create a career to get in touch.”
