BEATTIE RECRUITS 30 NEW FACES IN 2016
Wednesday, 16 November 2016
Beattie, the creative communications group, has achieved its target of recruiting 30 new faces in its 30th anniversary year.
The milestone was reached with the signings of Michelle Coull, Emma Laye, Donna White and Artur Trull.
Coull joins as digital account director from Peach, Laye comes as head of talent from McCann Manchester, Trull joins as a graduate film maker, and Donna White arrives from Trinity Mirror.
The group is still on the hunt for three PR people in London, four digital marketers and web developers in Scotland and a PR account manager in Leeds.
Laurna Woods said: “Business is booming. We won more than £1m of new business in the last month, hence the need for even more PR, digital and website talent.
“There is tough competition for exceptional people but we probably find it easier than most, having won the Large PR Agency Of The Year title and being recognised as the third best medium-sized employer in the UK according to one national newspaper (The Sun).
“We now have 130 people across our eight UK offices and I’m confident that we will continue to grow despite the tougher economic environment.”
Woods also announced the promotion of Douglas Mackay to IT director and Adam Christie to studio director.
Beattie has offices London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Falkirk and Essex. It recently set up shop in Canada.
Headline clients include Specsavers, Merck, High Street TV, Kimberly-Clark, flybe and French fashion house La Redoute.
