AN expanding credit hire and legal services firm is set to use their success in Bolton to break new ground on the other side of the Pennines.

Bosses from the Anexo Group say Bond Turner expanded the size of their Parklands offices to nearly 20,000 square feet during the second half of 2019.

An Anexo spokesman said: "Following the success of the Bolton office, the group is pleased to announce that Bond Turner expects to open an office in Leeds during Q1-2020.

"The Leeds office will initially be staffed by existing senior employees relocating from Bolton.

"This new regional office will offer excellent opportunities for the recruitment of further staff and the group expects its headcount within Bond Turner to continue to expand."

The firm confirmed last year it had taken on 10 new staff, to bolster their 63-strong team, with the workforce eventually rising to 130-plus.
