What’s the answer? The opening of the iconic Tyne Bridge of course!
The truth is this is probably the correct answer but just a couple of months after the bridge was opened, a company was founded in Gateshead which is, some 90 years later, still helping North East residents and business owners sleep at night.
Northern Counties Guarantee Corporation Limited was founded on Christmas Eve 1928. 90 years later and under their trading name of NC Insurance, they’ve also just marked the 10th anniversary of their LLP which was set up when they moved into their current head office in Low Fell, Gateshead.
NC Insurance has marked its 90th & 10th anniversaries in style by recruiting 3 new staff this year and an impressive 8 new members of staff in the past 2 years.
Speaking about the anniversaries and recruitment drive, Mark Burdett, the company Sales & Marketing Director said:
“Being able to provide professional insurance advice and continue to help protect local businesses and charities for such a lengthy period is testament to the values the company has. A lot of hard work was put into constructing the iconic bridge, which we share a moment in history with, and we look to re-create that work ethic when recruiting. In recent years this has meant employing of mix of apprentices and more experienced staff so our clients benefit by dealing with energetic, enthusiastic and professional insurance advisors.
For anyone looking for a career with a forward thinking company with a rich history or for assistance protecting their business or charity, I would urge them to get in touch as we can definitely help.”
