Mediaworks targets 30 staff for new Manchester operation
One of the UK and Ireland’s largest independent digital agencies, Mediaworks, is set to create 30 new jobs in the North West after substantial client growth in the region.
The agency has opened a new Manchester office, located at Jactin House in the heart of Ancoats, which follows the appointment of Oliver Goldring as managing partner of Mediaworks’ North West operation earlier this year.
In the last two years alone, the rapidly growing agency has doubled its headcount to over 200 digital experts, coming off the back of a raft of exciting client wins across its six UK&I sites. Its rapid growth in North West-based client wins have prompted the agency to commit substantial investment into its presence in the region.
In the last month alone, Mediaworks’ North West operations has overseen client wins including Winter Gardens, Hill Dickinson LLP and Salix Homes.
Brett Jacobson, CEO and founder of Mediaworks, explained: “We’ve launched an aggressive recruitment campaign in the North West that aims to see 30 heads operating from our new Manchester base in the next 18 months. We want to recruit the best from a rich digital talent pool here in the North West, adding them to our current crop of digital experts across the group.
“Mediaworks is now one of the top independent digital agencies in the UK. Oliver and his growing team in Manchester are going to have a fantastic future as part of the agency.”
The organisation, which was founded in 2007 by Jacobson, has developed a reputation in delivering digital growth for clients in key sectors such as retail, housing, finance and energy.
Oliver Goldring, managing partner for Mediaworks’ North West operations, added: “We’re thrilled to have secured and moved into our new office in the heart of Ancoats. Mediaworks has such a brilliant team, both here in Manchester and across its sites in the UK&I. This is a huge opportunity to fuel growth right across the group.”
Mediaworks delivers a range of services across SEO, PPC, web dev, brand, content and digital PR. The rapidly growing agency currently has 200 staff across its six offices in Newcastle, Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and as MWi in Dublin.
