The landmark new development, which will be known as Blyth Workspace, is due to open for business in the turn of the New Year. The workspace will help to regenerate the long term vacant site and help to enhance Blyth Estuary’s reputation as a centre of excellence in energy and research.
Over the next three years Arch, The Northumberland Development Company is leading the delivery of a mixed use development of the wider Commissioners Quay site as part of the broader regeneration of Blyth Estuary and town centre.
The development on Blyth Quayside will be available for occupation from March 2015. Businesses requiring space are being encouraged to take a look at the new building and Arch are taking reservations now and arranging tours around the site.
Arch has appointed Amy Webber, former Manager at The Quadrus Centre in South Tyneside as the new Blyth Workspace manager. Amy Webber, Blyth Workspace Manager said: "It's a superb opportunity to work for a company as experienced in this field as Arch and one I'm very excited about. I've been involved in facilities management for six years and I see the creation of the Blyth Workspace as a major positive step for the town and the surrounding area”.
Arch are also looking to recruit Customer Service Advisors for the workspace – further details of the posts can be found at Arch’s website www.archnorthumberland.co.uk
