Climb, the Gateshead-based digital agency, has celebrated its tenth anniversary by announcing it plans to recruit seven new members of staff.

Last year Climb became part of the Precision Proco Group after years of creating bespoke solutions for the Group’s 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 founder Chris Henderson. ‘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.’

Mr Henderson added that 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.’

The company is now looking to hire seven new people in order to keep up with the volume of work coming in. Mr Henderson says he 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 finished. ‘This 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.’
