“As many firms explore ways of improving efficiency and, actually, improving compliance when it comes to dealing with physical and email correspondence from their customers, we are growing our reputation as a trusted partner and a cost-effective solution to meet this need.

“We’re very proud of the growth we have seen, and that is in no small part down to the talent of our existing team – many of whom have been with us a long time and have grown their careers with Paragon. We’re hopeful of attracting more bright talent, who will enjoy the same rewarding workplace where they can grow with us.”

“We’re trusted by clients because we have a thorough, experienced team, who work to service level agreements that mean we provide a really exceptional level of care and support,” added Steve.

Coun Graeme Miller, leader of Sunderland City Council, said that Paragon Customer Communications was one of the city’s ‘under the radar’ success stories, that deserved more credit for its transformation.

He said: “It’s a real success story, and I am delighted that PCC will continue to create more jobs and opportunities in Sunderland – a base that has served them well so far and that we hope will continue to do so for many years to come as they scale their business.”
