QuickRebates and SSK Recruitment are both based in Novus Business Centre in Peterlee, operated by East Durham Business Service.

And as each business has won new contracts, expanded their regional, national and international presence and added to their headcounts, they have outgrown their current offices and are now in the process of upsizing.

Donna Cooper is co-partner at accountancy firm QuickRebates, which helps clients get money back from HM Revenue & Customs.

The organisation, which was launched two years ago by Donna and husband Glenn, now employs five people with plans for further recruitment and recently launched an accounting division, Edgemark Accounting, to support its expansion plans.

“Focus has been solely on client acquisition and ensuring the best possible customer service,” said Donna.

SKK Recruitment, which was launched by Adam Smith, Paul Kelly and Bradley Saunders in March 2018, has opened a second office at Bishop Auckland and has plans to open offices in Dubai and Iraq later this year.

“In just one year we have established ourselves as a leader within the recruitment industry and are doing particularly well winning international contracts, especially in the Middle East,” said a delighted Adam.
