SPECIALIST energy broker Inenco Direct is to create almost 100 new jobs as part of a major expansion programme.

The new positions - which will quadruple its workforce - include 80 new sales staff, as the company, part of St David’s Road North, St Annes-based Inenco, strives to cement a position as market leader.

Inenco Direct is part of the energy division at EnServe, the leading provider of infrastructure support services in the utility and energy sectors.

As well as 13 new staff taken on in the run-up to Christmas, the company plans to recruit an additional 80 sales and 11 support staff by July, bringing the total number of staff to 127.

The SME energy market in the UK is worth around £3 billion and Inenco Direct works with companies to fix their energy price for up to five years and find the most suitable deal.

The company, which changed its name from Saturn Energy in early 2011, has been trading since 1993 and has helped more than 90,000 commercial customers achieve savings of up to 75 per cent on their gas and electricity bills.

The company is led by a highly-experienced team of energy procurement experts, who buy electricity and gas on behalf of tens of thousands of sites across the UK every year, securing major discounts from suppliers.

Inenco Direct managing director Karen Trepte (left), said: “At a time when significant job cuts are being made in industry as a result of the economic downturn, I am delighted that Inenco Direct is able to create employment opportunities due to its expansion.

“There are vast opportunities open to us within our chosen markets and we look forward to recruiting new members of staff to our business.”
