BEATTIE TO CREATE DIGITAL TEAM IN MANCHESTER
Thursday, 09 November 2017
Beattie, the integrated communications agency, is to create a digital marketing team in Manchester.
The team will provide search, social, content, strategy, web-design and development services.
“We decided to build a team in Manchester because we see it as one of the most vibrant cities in the UK for digital marketing,” said Jessica McAndrew, director of Only Digital, Beattie’s 20-people strong digital marketing boutique.
“Manchester has a deep pool of digital talent and we feel it rivals Edinburgh and even London when it comes to innovation and creativity.
“The Manchester team will start small and grow as we go but right now our priority is to recruit PPC and SEO specialists. We’re also on the lookout for an experienced Umbraco developer as we recently won two big web development projects in the sport and education sectors.”
Beattie’s digital clients include health supplements brand Seven Seas, Discovery Channel, High Street TV, the Scottish Football Association and electronics giant Philips.
The digital team will be based in Beattie’s penthouse office in Manchester’s Mosley Street where their 11-strong PR team is based.
Siobhan Chesher, who heads up Beattie’s Manchester office, said: “Joined-up marketing is what clients want and it strengthens our offering to have a team based in Manchester.”
Headquartered in London, Beattie has 12 offices in the UK and Ireland and specialist teams serving the health, retail and travel sectors.
