Funding helps fuel Westcoast recruitment drive
July 25, 2011
Leading IT supplier Westcoast is recruiting 25 new members of staff after securing a funding deal with a national bank.
The company will be looking to take on new sales staff in its offices in Arrowhead Park, in Theale, and in Nottingham following its deal with Santander Corporate Banking.
Joe Hemani, founder of Westcoast, said: “We’re delighted to have secured this facility from Santander and we are looking forward to using this new finance to invest in and grow the business further.”
Westcoast currently employs 700 staff in four locations and is a key distributor for Hewlett Packard, though it recently began working with other big name brands including Samsung and Apple.
Hamish MacDonald, relationship director for Santander, said: “Westcoast is a great success story and a business I have known for many years.
“We are very pleased that we have been able to assist the further growth of the company, as well as helping the local economy through increased employment.”
