North-east-based Frank Haslam Milan will increase workforce by 200 over next two years

Regeneration firm Frank Haslam Milan has pledged to almost double its staff numbers in the next two years.

The Sunderland-based company has launched a recruitment drive that it says will ultimately create up to 200 new jobs in the North-east, as the firm seeks to build its regional presence.

Twenty vacancies are initially available in areas including contract management, quantity surveying, site management and design co-ordination.

The company will be holding recruitment events in Middlesbrough and Newcastle on 24-25 November.
