Expanding IT support firm Intrasource to create 25 jobs
AN EAST Yorkshire IT support company is creating up to 25 new jobs as it embarks on a major programme of expansion.
Hessle firm Intrasource has taken on eight new staff since managing director Claire Jacques and chairman John Collings bought the company following a management buyout (MBO) last summer and is continuing to expand.
The business currently has 50 staff, who are based in Hessle and at client locations throughout the UK and in the Netherlands.
Ms Jacques said: "In the six months since the MBO we have seen a 25 per cent increase in business and are forecasting a further 50 per cent rise during 2013.
Come and discover the wildlife at Blacktoft Sands nature reserve for just £6. Offer includes entry for 2 adults and up to 3 children, binocular hire and activities for children. Normal value £12.
Terms: Redeem voucher at visitor reception during opening hours, 9am to 5pm. Only, one pair of binoculars per voucher, customers will need to leave car keys as a deposit for binoculars.

"Organisations are placing contracts with us because they know we are able to look after their IT requirements all day, every day, all year round and that we will always go the extra mile to keep their systems fully functioning."
In line with its expansion, Intrasource has strengthened its business development team and is looking to gain more work with public sector organisations, particularly local authorities, which will require more IT outsourcing due to further cuts in their budgets.
Intrasource is also planning to refurbish its Hessle head offices to provide additional facilities for staff and clients, and the company is making a significant investment in technical accreditations and staff training to ensure it is at the forefront of the latest IT developments.
Mr Collings said: "IT is a rapidly-changing environment.
"For example, we have seen the emergence of cloud-based computing and Apple making inroads into the business community.
"There is also an ever-increasing need for secure data storage to protect the very livelihood of a business and in response to this, we have invested heavily in software that enables us to monitor our clients' servers and warn of any viruses or hacker attacks."
Intrasource provides IT support for 7,500 people employed by 50 companies in the UK, Europe and South Africa.
Intrasource's service users are set to expand to about 10,000 during the coming year.
