Share this Article:

Mediaworks has announced several new hires in Scotland following business growth in the last quarter. The team is now aiming to employ a further 20 new staff in the next 18 months.

Having installed Nick Smith as managing partner in April, Mediaworks has hired Angela Stewart as growth manager – moving from SKY AdSmart – and Jacob Chan as head of strategy – coming in from Global Radio.

Nikki Alcorn has now joined as account director, alongside Barry Snedden as growth manager and Ella Cameron as account executive.

With more than seven years’ experience at global media agency Carat, Alcorn will head up client services at Mediaworks’ Scottish base on Queen Street in Edinburgh.

Snedden joins Mediaworks from DC Thomson, where he previously led the sales team at Kingdom FM.

Cameron is also entering Mediaworks, starting her career in digital communications as she continues her third-year studies in International Business at Bath Spa University.

The new hires come off the back of a period of growth over the summer, which has seen clients including Cowberry Home, Muir Homes and Hello Scotland sign up.

Nick Smith, managing partner at Mediaworks Scotland, said: “We’re partnering with more future-thinking businesses across Scotland who are all searching for creative, strategic thinking, built on relevant data and insight.

“We have an exciting few months ahead and are already looking for more talented, digital-savvy candidates to join us here in Edinburgh.”

Brett Jacobson, chief executive and founder of Mediaworks, added: “I’m thrilled to see how quickly our Edinburgh office’s growth has accelerated in such a short space of time.

“Our new hires will be a fantastic addition to the Mediaworks team in Scotland and will also more than play their role across the wider agency’s ambitious growth plans – we’re fully focussed on becoming a significant force in the Scottish market.”
