Joanne Regan, regional managing partner of Azets, said: “The workspace is changing rapidly and forever, as is the support needed by our clients.

"That’s why we’re investing in a hybrid working model and encouraging our people to work from anywhere.

"Digitisation is key to our investment strategy as clients want top quality advice and rapid access to information at any given time, and staff want the flexibility and freedom to integrate work with their other commitments.”

She added: “We are actively looking to add talented people to our team in the North East, from school leavers to partners.

"The North East is booming thanks in part to high profile investments such as Teesside Freeport and Treasury North, and now is a great time to join a growing firm with ambitious plans.

“Azets also has a long tradition of recruiting and developing school leavers and graduates and we’re proud to attract local talent from the region’s schools and universities.”
