A TOP North East digital agency is celebrating its tenth anniversary by announcing a further recruitment campaign.

Climb, based at Gateshead’s Northern Design Centre, was launched a decade ago by designer Chris Henderson, who joined forces with tech expert Stephen Downey to create a full service agency which also offered bespoke digital solutions.

The success of the company, which is renowned for creating the next generation of digital platforms, has seen its team grow to 16 following the creation of four new jobs – and has now announced plans to recruit seven more members of staff.

Last year the company became part of the Precision Proco Group, one of the UK’s leading print organisations, after years of creating bespoke solutions for the Group’s cutting edge digital upload print portal, Where The Trade Buys.

“We have grown steadily in the last ten years but we still have the same passion for the job,” said Chris.

“And that’s the same for everyone in our team, where everyone’s lives revolve around technology and code.

“This has made us very agile as an organisation and we never sit still. We’re very proud of the fact that we’re at the forefront of technology and have created a very impressive modern development stack.”

Chris said the biggest change in the past decade is that “it’s now all about automation and the skills to create the perfect customer journey.”

“It’s no longer just about a website, it’s about the user experience and user interfaces and we are constantly working on new and exciting ways to improve this,” he said.

To keep up with the volume of work, Chris is actively recruiting experienced frontend and backend developers from across the UK.

“The one thing we’ve learned in the last year that we can work remotely,” he said.

“Which means that we can offer our new jobs nationwide without the need for people to consider relocation.

“We’re delighted to be celebrating our tenth anniversary by offering opportunities with a company which is pushing the boundaries and working on some really cutting edge products.”

Chris added that being part of a dynamic, forward-thinking organisation like Precision Proco Group – which has sites in Sunderland, London, Nottingham and Sheffield – has been of great benefit.

“The group is driven by technology, it underpins everything do,” he said.

“We are driven by a desire to innovate using the latest technology, it’s fantastic that Climb is part of it.”
