As County Durham-based Theo James enters its eighth year in business they have decided to expand into two markets.
Since its inception in 2015, they have grown to 16 staff and successfully supported manufacturing & engineering companies within predominately technical engineering, supply chain and leadership roles.
Moving into 2023 Theo James has decided to launch a specialist blue-collar division to recruit a breadth of roles like machinists, welders, fabricators, fitters and electricians. This is alongside ‘Theo James Executive’ which will concentrate on senior leadership and C-Suite roles.
The decision was helped by a successful exhibit at the EMCON event earlier in 2022. Some of the connections made at this event helped fuel the move to support clients with a clear staff shortage problem in this area.
Despite economic challenges, the North East Manufacturing & Engineering sector has much growth planned in 2023 and beyond.
Managing Director Mark Bracknall says “This is a really exciting move for the business and we are looking forward to further supporting this industry. Being part of the EMCON Exhibit was really useful. We have been members of the Engineering & Manufacturing Network for over a year, so to be able to showcase our business in the Incubator section was really beneficial.
