After starting off with just one director, Fairmeadows now has more than 70 staff.

Its new headquarters are located in Front Street West, Bedlington. The event was also a recruitment day.

HR manager Amber Towers said: “Our open day/recruitment day was very successful. We were thrilled to meet so many local people and chat about our expanding business venture into our own private offices in Bedlington, after moving from Arch space.

“We had the chance to meet social workers, career advisors from the local Jobcentre Plus and job seekers.

“We have made several offers of employment since and have gained a great name for ourselves in the local area. In addition, we supported our local coffee shop Swinney’s – enjoying their fantastic cakes.”
