Deloitte has announced its latest recruitment drive in the Tees Valley that will look to fill 25 new roles.
The firm said it will initially recruit for 25 roles in its tax business. Half the roles will be for technology professionals running a new digital platform that Deloitte is launching which automates the preparation and submission of customs declarations.
The other roles will be for marketing professionals who will work with Deloitte teams across Europe.
According to the firm, its new team in the Tees Valley will work in a hybrid way, having access to an office to connect and collaborate but also being able to work from home in the way that “suits them best.”
Stuart Cottee, practice senior partner at Deloitte in the North East, said: “This is the first time Deloitte has recruited for roles specifically based in the Tees Valley. We know that the area is rich in talent and has a proud history of its workers innovating, getting results and having an impact that spreads far beyond the region.
“Last November we held a conference, attended by over 100 organisations, to discuss economic growth in the region. We were so inspired by the opportunities discussed that we felt we needed to make our own contribution to economic growth in the Tees Valley by recruiting, initially for 25 roles.”
Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor, added: “This new announcement from Deloitte is fantastic news and will see the firm join the growing number of companies making a commitment to Teesside.
“By recruiting directly across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, this multinational firm is backing our region and its skilled workers. It’s also another example of how people can stay local but go far, and don’t need to leave their hometowns for big cities to secure good-quality, well-paid careers with prestigious organisations.”
