AN EAST Durham mailing business is creating at least 10 jobs as it continues to expand.

MetroMail employs 220 people at its site at Fox Cover Enterprise Park in Seaham.

After a rise in output, and with new clients signed up and innovations in the pipeline, the company has announced it is to create the new positions early in 2015, with further recruitment planned throughout the year.

Managing director Alan Purvis said: “Every year we’ve seen our business grow and we’re now in the position where we need to add to our workforce in several key areas of the company, to ensure further growth in 2015.

“We’re also committed to our talent attraction programme, where we look to bring young people with real potential into the business, who we can train and invest in.

“So as well as the recruitment of people with experience, we’ll be appointing two apprentices, one in administration and one engineer.

“Both are really exciting positions for the right person. I started my career as an apprentice, so it is something I am passionate about being able to do.”

It provides services including mailing, laser printing, poly wrapping and data management to clients across a diverse range of sectors, particularly mail order and financial services. MetroMail handles up to one million pieces of mail every day.
