Centre builds new skills.
The Newcastle test centre is the 14th of 20 the company plans to open in the UK.
Newcastle Central MP Jim Cousins was on hand to officially open the new centre.
Kerry Fawcett of Labour Ready said: "The convenience of having a CSCS test centre in our branch encourages our temporary workers to earn their certification, opening the door to a wide range of opportunities in the industry."
Labour Ready offices in the UK make it easy for its customers to hire temporary workers.
Clients can hire a temporary worker into a fulltime position without paying any fees and after just one day of work.
More than 1,000 Labour Ready temporary workers have moved into permanent jobs under the programme since the beginning of last year. Labour Ready has 42 branches across the UK and, globally, the company found temporary work for more than 600,000 people last year.
