On the back of new client wins and further growth, we’ve welcomed another batch of fresh new faces here at Mediaworks.
Eight individuals have joined the big blue machine, strengthening key areas of the business. Because we’re always looking for fresh talent, we thought it was high time we introduced you to the new recruits, so you can see what makes a Mediaworks-er for yourself.
(Back row from left to right: Richard, Gary, Jordan, Ryan, Aidan and Ben. Front row, from left to right: Martha and Henrietta)
Martha Bailey: Client Relationship Manager
Despite getting lost on the Team Valley Trading Estate, Martha is really enjoying her new role and location.
Bringing one hell of a skill set with her, Martha has experience of SEO, PPC and relationship management from her previous employment. Strengthening the fast-paced client services team, she’s really excited about her future here at Mediaworks:
“I don’t think I’ll ever be bored here, every day is different. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the accounts I’m managing and getting to know my clients. Despite the fast pace of the role, the company has a relaxed and friendly attitude, and I felt welcome straight away.”
Ben Hall: Developer
Ben joins Mediaworks after several years working on various front end digital projects at smaller agencies. After showing a real passion for what he does and a desire to progress his career, he was offered a position within the development team. He said:
“The transition to a big agency has been helped by the friendliness of Mediaworks staff — particularly the technical team, whom I have worked closely with in the last three weeks. You have all made the first few weeks a great time for me and I look forward to the future!”
Ryan Burnyeat: Audience Development Apprentice
Having played football for both Doncaster Rovers and in America while studying in Springfield, Missouri, Ryan first heard of Mediaworks through 3aaa, the training providers of his creative apprenticeship.
Joining our outreach team, Ryan was first drawn to the company after he was approached about the role. Reading through it, he said the role sounded interesting and something he would not only enjoy, but be good at. We look forward to helping Ryan with his development, and his team lead Beth will be on hand every step of the way.
Jordan Wilkinson: Audience Development Apprentice
As another addition to our outreach team, Jordan joined us following the completion of a sports journalism internship for an online football blog.
Considering Jordan had been looking for a way into digital marketing, he knew Mediaworks was the perfect opportunity:
“I was attracted to the job the second I saw it. In the opening months, I’m looking forward to getting to know and work with new people, and just getting stuck into the work.”
Henrietta Foy: SEO Consultant
Henretta is the first to admit she’s fixated with detail but she’s used her analytical skills to carve out an impressive SEO career.
Following a successful couple years at another agency, Henrietta became interested in Mediaworks when she heard good things from a friend:
“Recently, I made the move to Mediaworks as I had heard lots of great things about the company. Four weeks in and I’m loving it — everyone is so friendly, helpful and good at what they do!”
Aidan Hudson: Development Apprentice
Following three years working as a freelance Website Designer, Aiden was drawn to the role at Mediaworks after he did a little research on both the people and the culture we promote.
It only took one visit for Aiden to conclude that the development team was the perfect fit he was looking for. Joining as part of our creative apprenticeship scheme, Aiden is looking forward to learning MVC 5 and other tools with Mark and the rest of the team. Speaking of his short time with us, Aiden had this to say:
“I have really enjoyed the past two weeks at Mediaworks, and can’t wait to work here longer — it really seems to just get better each day.”
Richard Dennis: Planning Executive
Organisational whizz Richard followed in the footsteps of his sister Beth, our Digital Marketing Manager, and joined us after she told him of a unique apprenticeship that would not only offer a supportive working environment, but provide positive challenges.
While Richard has only been working with Mediaworks for few weeks, he’s really hit the ground running and is proving a valuable addition to the planning team.
Gary Ward: PPC Executive
Prior to picking up the PPC baton for Mediaworks, Gary was working within a design role at a Yorkshire-based marketing company. Designing websites and campaign content, as well as advising on conversion rate optimization (CRO), Gary was attracted to Mediaworks when looking for a new opportunity in the North East.
Speaking of his time at Mediaworks, Gary said: “My first month has been absolutely great. The whole team has made me feel more than at home, and has bent over backwards to bring me up to speed on the workflow.”
