Mediaworks ramps up recruitment drive following national award success

Share this Article:

Mediaworks continues to expand its ever-growing team, welcoming seven new recruits across the business in the last month alone.

Laura-Jane Todd and Louise Richardson have both joined the Copywriting team, while Sophie Watson and Samantha Collins enter the business as Client Relationship Managers. Business Development Manager, Alys Dunn, has strengthened the agency’s Commercial team and Zoe Bell has taken up the role of Executive Assistant.

Also new to the team is Tayla Reed-Hunting, who is the latest of five new Digital Marketing Apprentices to join Mediaworks in recent weeks. Now in its 8th year, Mediaworks’ apprenticeship scheme offers opportunities for young people to gain valuable experience of digital marketing at an award-winning agency.

The newest recruits join during what has been an incredibly successful year so far for us at Mediaworks. The agency took home the Digital & Social Media award at the North East Business Awards Final and the Best Use of Search award at Big Chip 2017, as well as growing its client portfolio of some of the biggest regional, national and international brands. As a result of this success, Mediaworks is celebrating its first decade by being on target to double its turnover in the next 12 months.

Commenting on Mediaworks’ continued expansion, Managing Director Brett Jacobson said: “The new recruits are already proving valuable additions to the team, helping us to continue to deliver outstanding client work. We hope to continue this expansion in the future, offering greater opportunities to digital marketers in the North East.”
