Stephen Belton has joined Darlington-based Tribe Recruitment as Business Manager, bringing with him extensive experience and a network of contacts in the industrial, transport and logistics sectors.
Originally from Yarm and now based in Middlesbrough, Stephen has specialized in these sectors for 13 years, working with clients ranging from multi-million pound businesses to small and medium sized businesses.
Father-of-two Stephen said: “I was looking for a new challenge and Tribe Recruitment was a company that aligned with my values of treating people right. “It’s a company that cares , and I want us to be the agency of choice for our departments.
“The aim is to grow the business and expand into new geographical areas while maintaining the specialist approach to our work. We won’t try to divide ourselves too much – it’s about being the best in the sectors we know.”
Stephen will work alongside HR consultant Ben Sowerby at the company, which is part of Newlands Group, along with Tribe Search, Care Matters, Turn Left Ventures and The Robin Centre.
Phil Crowther, founder and director of Newlands Group, said: “Stephen is an important appointment because he knows these sectors inside out and is part of the group’s commitment to investing in exceptional talent.”
