2020 round up- wrapping up the year at Tyneside Group
It’s safe to say that no business has made it through 2020 unaffected and, for better or for worse, the general consensus is the impact of this year will be felt across all industries for years to come.
At Tyneside Group, we are proud of how our company has navigated the challenges of this momentous year. Driven as always by the determination and dedication of our fantastic team, we’ve kept our business moving forward, so we can now look ahead to new and better opportunities in 2021.

- Starting a new job can often be daunting, but our newest member of staff really got thrown in at the deep end this year. Dale Rylatt joined the team as our Property Manager at the start of March, so he hardly had time to settle in before moving to home working. Despite the unusual start, he’s been a great asset to the Tyneside team: Read more
- As we look towards the new year, the Tyneside Developments team is focused on breathing new life into disused commercial premises, repurposing them to work for businesses in modern times: Read more
