A CLUTCH of new jobs have been created with the opening of the 70th branch of a national company.

Financial services will be offered by the team who have moved in to premises in Darlington's Skinnergate and who believe around 21,000 people in the town could qualify for their help.

The Everyday Loans firm will be overseen by branch manager Sushan Marambe and customer account manager Sarah Clarke, who has relocated to Darlington after spending six and a half years at from Everyday Loans’ Middlesbrough branch.

The third recruit is Adam Jarvie, who joined the company at the start of the year.

The three-strong team is already providing customers in and around Darlington, many of whom have had difficulty paying bills or getting access to credit or managing their money in the past.

Ms Marambe said: "We have a wealth of financial services experience and our management team knows what it takes to deliver a straightforward, face-to-face professional service."

Everyday Loans’ Darlington branch is located at 77 Skinnergate, Darlington, DL3 7LX. Alternatively, call 01325-638847.
