200th staff member joins growing GAS workforce

Great Annual Savings (GAS) is delighted to announce it has passed a significant milestone in its growth journey.

GAS has welcomed its 200th member of staff at its Spectrum Business Park headquarters last week.

The firm now operates in the UK and Ireland and employs people across the whole country.  Having moved to Spectrum with 30 staff in 2015, the Group has continued to expand in both headcount and customer numbers.

GAS now employs 204 staff thanks to last week’s intake of 21 new starters and has grown its portfolio of customers to more than 3,500.  These businesses have benefited from any number of GAS’ 12 cost-saving services, including energy, water, merchant payments, insurance, waste and more.

Last week’s milestone has been celebrated at the company, but Group HR Director Judith Bennison has insisted it’s still just the beginning.

She said: “At GAS we’re a proud North East employer, but also a growing influence around the UK with our flourishing field-based division.

 “We’re now one of the largest employers in our industry and we intend to continue to recruit quality professionals around the country to allow us to help more businesses.

Paul JohnsonGroup Financial Director

Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.

He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United.  He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.

Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance.  When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.


“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”

Interesting fact:

Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League.  Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.
