One the region’s leading niche recruitment companies has celebrated taking on a partner by moving to a brand new office in the heart of Middlesbrough.

Hainton is a specialist recruitment consultancy for the industry, and after launching two years ago the founder of the company Tom Smith has welcomed new partner Qasim Asghar to the fold.

Tom and Qasim immediately knew they needed office space that represents their ethics, their aspirations and their service to their clients, so they chose Commerce House.

Commerce House is a stunning Grade II listed building in the heart of Middlesbrough, just opposite the train station.

The building is currently undergoing a full renovation into a luxurious business community, with phase one complete and phase two due to complete anytime. There is a stunning boardroom available for use by tenants or for visitors to hire, as well as virtual office services and full business support.

Hainton works closely with large data companies and software companies across the region, placing candidates, creating job opportunities and increasing talent retention. And now the duo want to expand geographically to service clients further afield. Tom, who is 28 and from Middlesbrough, explains:

“We currently look after clients regionwide and now we will be looking to work with clients further afield meaning our position at Commerce House is ideal being right next to the station and to the A66.

“We have a decade of experience in recruitment and our ethics are strong – we only work with quality employers and quality candidates. We also give advice, free support and build relationships with our clients so we are part of their team – for us it is not about filling a job but placing the right person in the right opportunity. This gives the arrangement longevity.”

Tom first met Qasim 10 years ago but it wasn’t until recently they realised they had the same aspirations and work ethics. Qasim, 30 from Ingleby Barwick, said:

“I am delighted to be working with Tom and that we are positioned in such high spec facilities – it makes our working day so much easier and clients that have visited us are very impressed. The level of quality matches Hainton perfectly.”

Hainton produce regular blogs and articles which provide more information, many of them from .net specialists. You can find those on the LinkedIn and Facebook page.
