Locally based energy and procurement specialist Fusion for Business has outlined ambitious expansion plans that will see the company employ 50 additional staff over the next 12 months providing Consett with a major jobs boost.
Fusion for Business is on the search for talented people within the local area to help them achieve their missions to defend the earth from energy and carbon waste by challenging the outdated energy supply chain and the way buildings are managed. The company, which launched in January 2020 after winning a grant from the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, already employs 20 residents having successfully expanded after helping thousands of UK businesses save on their energy costs. This expansion will help the company scale its existing sales department as well as grow its Community Ambassador Programme, supported by Newcastle Falcons and Consett Football Club, which helps local sports clubs across the UK gain access to new revenue streams and sponsorship.
Local resident and company CEO Christopher Charlton said: “Having lived in the local area for a long time I have always wanted to create opportunities to help support the local community. I know that many people must commute for hours daily outside of Consett for work. I used to face a 2-hour commute through traffic each day and ultimately this create an unequal work life balance.”
Within 12 months Fusion for Business has helped over 1000 businesses with their business energy needs and this expansion plan will allow them to reach even more.
Samuel Lind operations director at Fusion for Business adds: “Businesses up and down the country are still feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This makes Fusion for Businesses proposition set of helping customers save on today’s, tomorrows, and yesterday’s energy costs more important than ever and we need more people to help us reach as many customers as possible.
This expansion will also help protect the wild habitats within the local area as Fusion for Business through their partnership with Durham Wildlife Trust protect 1 acre of land for every customer that they help. Currently Fusion for Business sponsors and protects over 200 acres of land at Rabbitbank Wood.
