Since late in 2015 plans have been made to move into a larger office in the local area.
After finding the new office, on Bracken Hill Industrial Estate in Peterlee, we quickly proceeded to initiate the plans.
It wasn’t as easy as first planned, with unexpected internet issues delaying us by over a month. This did, however, give us time to change the layout of the office by resizing some of the rooms and have the building fully rewired for communications. We finalised the preparations by carpeting throughout and adding matching desks and chairs.
With the new office we also upgraded our servers, this will allow us to cope with the increasing amount of customers we deal with each year.
What does this mean for Start Energy?
Start Energy have grown from strength to strength over the past 5 years, constantly adding to the customer portfolio and increasing the services we provide. With this growth, Start Energy have also grown the work force steadily. The old office had reached maximum capacity and moving to the new office allows us to expand rapidly over the next 12 months. Adding not only full time careers but apprenticeships in the local area, supporting the youth into employment with very good career prospects at the end of their training.
Start Energy are always striving to do what is best for our customers, this is shown by the awards we have won over the years. We were shortlisted again in 2016 meaning that we were in the top 10 in the UK of over 1600 applicants.
Gary Robson, Managing Director said “Well what a past 12 months this has been for Start Energy. The growth of Start Energy is now moving in a greater pace than first anticipated which is a credit to the hard work from our staff. After winning in 2014, we were once again nominated for Consultancy of the year, we were also nominated for Sales Professionals of the Year 2016.
We have moved into new offices at 7 Fern Court in Peterlee as part of our growth plans and are now heavily recruiting Energy Consultants to further our growth. We have also recruited local young apprentices for our growing admin team which we feel is a positive move for our local area.
Our growth is proof of the hard work we do for the record amount of customers using Start Energy.”
