A North East-headquartered business and IT consultancy is set for international growth with the opening of a new Australian office.
Waterstons, which is based in Durham, is opening its first overseas base in Sydney, where it will launch a 24/7 proactive support service for its clients.
The business and IT consultancy hopes to hire a number of graduates as it builds its team throughout 2020 and beyond.
Charlie Hales, managing director of Waterstons in Australia, commented: “I love a challenge and I can’t wait to get the new Australia business up and running.
“We already have a presence in Australia and work with a number of clients in both Sydney and Perth. We are now excited to build on these strong partnerships and connect with new businesses.
“Our partnership approach to supporting clients, combined with a proactive culture and strong core values have resonated with Australian businesses, giving us the opportunity to expand internationally.”
Alistair McLeod, director at Waterstons, added: “The opening of our first international office is part of an exciting year of growth and development for Waterstons. We are servicing clients across the globe, our team has grown to over 180 working across four offices, and our turnover reflects record growth this year.
“Our expansion brings many opportunities for our colleagues and new recruits. We have a clear roadmap for the business and we are all looking forward to the 12 months ahead.”
