15 Oct Great Annual Savings relocation boosts Seaham
It’s hard to believe Great Annual Savings only moved their headquarters to Spectrum Business Park only four and a half months ago.
Since the move GAS have doubled staff numbers, with more than 60 dedicated employees now working from their Spectrum offices. Whilst the growth rate has been impressive, what’s really important is that they’ve managed to create jobs for local people. Many of the positions have been filled by workers who live in Seaham and surrounding areas of East Durham and Sunderland – areas that have previously suffered from high unemployment.
Another notable aspect of their recruitment drive is they’ve taken on ten young apprentices, who now have a great opportunity to develop their career in a fast-paced, expanding company. Apprenticeships are a fantastic way of developing the next generation of young talent and GAS is a firm advocate of this type of training. According to official Government statistics, businesses that hire apprentices are more productive than those that don’t. Already GAS has seen their young recruits make a difference to their business and they’re confident that they’ll add even more value as they learn about the company, its operations and its values.
Great Annual Saving’s relocation to Seaham has also enabled them to provide regular work for local companies. Since June they’ve employed the services of valeting firm 3D Valets, cleaning expert Sparkles and catering specialist Delicious and all of these companies have hired additional staff as a result of the extra work.
Going forward GAS will continue to work with local suppliers wherever possible. This will help to create work for local people, boost the growth of businesses in the area and assist the regeneration of Seaham.
