Nicola and Lindsay appointed to help manage Hub Washington
30 July 2015
New recruits Nicola Johnson and Lindsay Capeling
The North East Business and Innovation Centre (BIC) continues to grow with the appointment of two new employees.
Lindsay Capeling and Nicola Johnson, both from Washington, have joined the BIC as business space administrators. They will be based at the BIC’s newest centre, The Hub in Washington.
The Hub consists of 17 modern, air-conditioned offices with a provision for meeting space, and conference facilities, as well as offering help and advice to start up and established businesses.
Lindsay and Nicola will facilitate bookings of the meeting rooms, giving businesses tours of the space available as well as welcoming visitors to reception. In her previous employment, Lindsay spent eight years as a receptionist in the very same building.
She said: “I am delighted to be part of the BIC’s newest venture and can’t wait to welcome the new businesses as they move on site. It has been interesting to see the building develop into office space and it’s fantastic that I can be a part of it, it feels so familiar, like home from home.
“I love meeting new people and feel that this is the perfect role to continue doing that.”
After a career in HR, Nicola is also looking forward to welcoming new tenants to the Hub. She added:
“After being made redundant, I was over the moon to be appointed at the Hub. I was very impressed with the facilities and the warm welcome we received at the BIC. It is our aim to ensure that this is replicated over here in Washington.”
Paul McEldon, chief executive of the BIC, welcomed the new staff:
“The BIC is an enterprise agency and we are constantly innovating and evolving. It is testament to our staff and the service that we have provided for over 20 years that we now have locations in Darlington and Washington in addition to our headquarters here in Sunderland.
“I look forward to seeing Lindsay and Nicola and indeed the Hub develop over the coming months.”
