Alex Moss, Director
Anna Moss, Director
Ben Barker, Head of Search
Rhys Wynne, Lead Developer
Rebecca Moss, Head of Content Marketing
Zara Bennett, Social Media Manager
Alexandra Martin, Client Services Manager
Alex actually started out with aspirations of being a dentist, but when she got asked to leave her Chemistry class at college due to being so bad at it this dream was quickly quashed!
From there she started a Marketing apprenticeship and her love for all things digital bloomed; within a year she was managing a large number of client accounts. She has since worked in-house and at other marketing agencies over the past fours years before recently taking some time out to pursue her art work. It only took six weeks before she realised that working from home was nowhere near as fun as working in Manchester and now she’s here.
In her free time Alex rides and shows her horses competitively at county level, as well as keeping busy with her animal portraits for clients and friends…and of course eating too much Greek food and drinking too much gin!
Michael Scott, Search Consultant
Michael is from Liverpool and moved to Manchester to study Advertising Management and Brand Management at Manchester Metropolitan University. Michael started at FireCask in September 2013, working one day a week through his course and then carried on working through the summer before going back to complete his degree. Now fully graduated, he just couldn’t stay away, and has joined us on a full time basis as a Search Consultant.
Outside of work Michael is slightly obsessed with Football and prides himself on knowing obscure facts that he will never need in day to day life and supports his hometown club, Liverpool. He is also interested in numerous other sports, listens to a wide variety of music and is at the peak of his enjoyment with a beer in his hand.

After university Jacek worked as a junior developer for a year and a half, and then went on to develop his own bespoke CRM project for 6 months.
Out of work, Jacek is a big car and motorcycle fan. He works on my his vehicles whenever possible and spends more money than he should on them.

Cat Crawford, Creative Content Executive
During her final year of University, Cat started her own beauty blog as a break from endless essay writing. She started to utilise social media to promote her content and after seeing how young online entrepreneurs were using blogs as a marketing tool, she started to learn more and more about content marketing.
After graduating in Film & Video in 2014, Cat decided to pursue her passion for marketing and completed marketing internships in both her hometown of Warrington and Manchester.

Will Ellis, Content Marketing Executive
Rachel Campbell, Digital PR Executive
Sanjay Purewal, Junior SEO Executive
San(Jay) graduated from the Manchester Metropolitan University with a 2:1 in Advertising Management & Brand Management (which is just a long-winded way to say digital marketing). After graduating Jay undertook a graduate scheme with the University in order to apply his digital marketing knowledge and push a struggling company into the online world of the 21st Century. This is where his love of burritos and SEO started to blossom.
In his spare time Jay likes to balance his healthy habit of working out with his unhealthy habit of eating 20 McDonalds chicken nuggets and binge watching TV shows.
Joe Spence, Content Marketing Executive
Since graduating from Sheffield Hallam in 2014, with a 2:1 in Screen Studies and Scriptwriting, Joe had a variety of different jobs, including THAT GUY who would stop you on the street and try and sell you stuff. After that didn’t work out, and after a year of bar work, Joe contacted FireCask who allowed him to have a week of work experience before he went travelling around South America for 5 months.
Joe loved his short week at FireCask, writing various types of content and helping create fresh ideas. He contacted us whilst in Peru, fresh off Machu Picchu, and has now joined us full time, working in the centre of Manchester with so many fantastic options for lunch.
Joe is a huge film fanatic and prides himself on his useless knowledge of film trivia that only seems to come in handy when watching the quiz show “Pointless”. Joe has also completed many marathons in his time… Netflix of course, with a few of his favourite series being The Wire, The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Alan Partridge.
Joe is also a big on sports, and loves playing Rugby at his local team Wilmslow Wolves. He is also a huge Manchester United supporter and tries to watch a game whenever he can (maybe not the last few seasons)
Ella Clarke, Social Media Executive
After completing A-levels in Sociology, English Literature/Language and Photography, Ella decided university wasn’t the right choice for her and opted for the apprenticeship route. She joined a Digital Marketing and Web Development agency as a Social Media Assistant and gained lots of valuable experience whilst working with a large range of clients. She most enjoys the planning of new campaigns and keeping up to date with new social platforms and how best to use them.
Outside of work, and when not enjoying a city break or festival, Ella is an animal lover and enjoys spending time with her pet tortoise, drinking cocktails and looking at pictures of cute dogs on Instagram.
