In the North East there are ambitious plans to grow within the next five years by increasing revenue three-fold by a combination of organic growth and compatible acquisitions creating around 100 new jobs and taking turnover to over £30m.

The firm has eight offices across the region at Alnwick, Crook, Durham, Guisborough, Hexham, Seaton Burn, Sunderland and Wynyard.

Many of the firm’s existing offices will benefit from investment and remodelling to provide more agile and flexible working spaces.

The firm is making a multi-million pound investment in a fully digitised, mobile-enabled hybrid working environment, providing its people with more choice and the flexibility to work from anywhere.

Joanne Regan, regional managing partner of Azets in the North East, said: “The workspace is changing rapidly and forever, as is the support needed by our clients.

"That’s why we’re investing in a hybrid working model and encouraging our people to work from anywhere.

"Digitisation is key to our investment strategy as clients want top quality advice and rapid access to information at any given time, and staff want the flexibility and freedom to integrate work with their other commitments.

“There has never been a better time to think about joining Azets as we look to capitalise on growth to date and accelerate the next phase of development. We are actively looking to add talented people to our team in the North East at all levels, from school leavers to partners and everything in between.

“Azets has a long tradition of recruiting and developing school leavers and graduates and we’re proud to attract local talent from the region’s schools and universities. We want to ensure our staff can pursue their careers within the business and are supported in their ambitions and this investment will support this.”

Job types range from Associates right through to Partner and across all levels in audit and assurance, accounts and advisory business services, corporate finance, tax, private clients, restructuring services and many more.
