Recruitment and HR consultancy Exclusive has taken on new headquarters and doubled the size of its team as it looks to grow both divisions of its rapidly-expanding business.

Exclusive, which was founded by managing director Mark Ions six years ago, has more than doubled the size of its head office at Prestwick Park business park near Newcastle International Airport.

The firm, which was named Business of the Year at the recent Culture for Success Awards and also has offices in Leeds, Scotland and the US, is confident the move will give it room for further expansion, better facilities for its client and candidate base and a great working environment for its growing team, which has now expanded to more than 20.

This latest move comes after the company, which provides recruitment services as well as outsourced HR targeted at SMEs, opened a new US base last year.

Managing director Mark Ions said the firm is currently achieving 25% year-on-year turnover growth and is aiming for solid growth in 2014.

Ions said: “The office move topped off a fantastic 2013, which saw growth in both areas of the business and sets up the company for further success this year.”
