Today is our 1st birthday and it has been an exciting, busy and brilliant 365 days!
Our team is now seven people strong and since we opened our doors, we have welcomed Chris White and Patrick Brown to our family. Chris is our resident journalist and leads our high quality outreach campaigns for clients. Outside of work he is a keen sportsman and captains his local hometown cricket team Wakerley and Barrowden. Patrick is our new content and outreach strategist and is working across all of our client base to gain relevant backlinks and write great content in the process! He’s not too bad at social media either!
We have done some exciting work this year with some brilliant companies from Expedia to 123Reg! We would also like to say a huge thank you to all of our existing clients who are a pleasure to work with and have made our growth possible.
Our Charity Work & Mentoring
Over the last year we have taken on 6 interns, Anna has mentored 2 college students and we have offered work experience placements and experience to young people of all ages.
Our charity work has grown and we are proud to say that we support some incredible organisations such as The Factory Youth Zone, the Mustard Tree, Bury Hospice and Grace’s Place Children’s Hospice. We look to continue our work with them and more in the coming year and it is extremely rewarding and something all of the team enjoys getting involved with.
