A LAW firm based in Hartlepool has given a boost to the jobs market.
Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors has created five new posts and also taken on four more staff to fill vacant posts.
Four of the new posts are in the firm’s conveyancing department, based in Hartlepool, with the fifth new position in the commercial property team at Wynyard Park.
The new recruits include Christine Wise, 56, who has started as a conveyancing administrator. She had worked for Yuill Homes for 23 years until the company went into administration in March. She said: “I genuinely thought my only option would be a job some distance away, so to find new jobs being created a short bus ride from home was perfect.”
Managing partner John Hall said: “We all know how much this region’s economy has suffered in recent years, and Hartlepool in particularly has struggled. The partners and I are proud that we are in a position to expand areas of our service, and create new jobs here.”
