North East housing association Bernicia is expanding its in-house repairs and maintenance division, creating a further 31 jobs.

From April, repairs to 4,000 of Bernicia's homes from Gateshead to Teesside will be delivered by the new team, operating from its newly fitted out depot.

They will join Bernicia's already successful Property Maintenance Division, increasing the division's staffing numbers to 175 across the business and annual turnover to more than £15 million.

This southern area expansion replicates the successful business model already employed in Bernicia's northern operations - which delivers 75,000 repairs each year to 10,000 properties across Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle.
