SPG Resourcing has appointed Mhairi Allan as associate director to drive the expansion of its Newcastle office. The move will accelerate the company’s expansion plans as it sees strong growth supporting the booming technology industry in Newcastle and the North East.

Ms Allan has held senior roles in the recruitment industry, most recently as an expert in Amazon Web Services professionals. SPG Resourcing helps companies and organisations across the digital sector find the talent they need. It operates nationally from offices in Newcastle and Leeds. The business is growing quickly and expects revenue to double to £7m and create an additional 10 jobs in the next 12 months.
