An energy recruitment company has moved into new offices to better tap into the growing industry in the Northwest.
Recruiter Air Resources has signed up for 7,000 sq ft of space in an Exchange development in Manchester’s New York Street.
Following a contract for 16,900 sq ft from a government department, commercial landlord Bruntwood only has 1,400 sq ft left in the Exchange.
This is out of a total area of 42,000 sq ft within five months of completion of the development.
According to MacRae’s Blue Book, Air Resources had 33 employees and generated between £25 million and £50 million in sales.
Demand for specialists in green energy is expected to increase in the future through government directives to reduce carbon emissions.
More green jobs have been predicted by the office for the prime minister Gordon Brown, who was scheduled to make a stop in the region on Thursday.
Several companies have been choosing the Northwest for back office operations from London due to cheaper rent and staffing costs.
