Further expansion for Sunderland-based consultants

Legislation consultants and analysts Cedrec are continuing to flourish with the appointment of three new faces to its sales and writing team.

The company has appointed Natalie Dixon as business development executive and Georgia Houghton and Adarsh Rai as writers.

Cedrec, who employ 18 people and with a turnover in excess of £700,000, specialises in providing public and private sector organisations with help and advice in understanding, interpreting and complying with environmental and safety legislation from its base at Sunderland’s North East Business Innovation Centre.

Natalie joined Cedrec in June 2015 with a background in social media marketing, external relations management, content marketing and offline marketing support. Natalie has previously worked at Unity4UK, UtilityWise and T-Mobile as well as a freelance virtual assistant in both public and private sectors.

Georgia Houghton joined the company in August on a rolling placement from the University of Sunderland, having just completed her first year of a LLB Law (Qualifying) degree and will be working on a project to add EU full text to legislation summaries. Georgia will return to Cedrec at various points throughout her studies, gaining experience in a related field which will help her achieve employment either with Cedrec or a similar company.

Adarsh, originally from Kenya and about to embark on the final year of an Urban Planning degree, joined Cedrec on a summer placement from Newcastle University. Adarsh will assist Cedrec in creating a new planning system and helping with proofreading. Like Georgia, Adarsh will gain worthwhile experience in a field similar to his degree and assists the company during a busy period.

Neil Howe, senior legal author at Cedrec, said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have been able to bring onboard Natalie, Georgia and Adarsh. This is an exciting period of expansion for Cedrec and the skills and experience these new faces bring us will be invaluable in helping with existing projects and broadening our offering to secure new sales.”
