Clearly, the communications, content marketing and digital media agency, has strengthened its team with a number of new hires that have seen the team expand to 13 at its central Bath office.
Olivia Evans-McCaffery has been appointed as Senior Account Executive. She qualified from the University of the West of England with a First Class degree in Journalism and Public Relations and has spent the last two years learning her trade with a very successful local agency.
Ruby Bosanquet joins the team as Associate Writer – a role that will see her work on a number of accounts across the Accountancy, Legal and Recruitment sectors. With a Masters in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and a degree in English gained at Exeter University, Ruby has vast experience in creating copy for B2B and B2C clients.
George Friend comes on board to take up the newly created role of Social Media & Influencer Marketing Executive. Recently recognised as one of the South West’s Most Influential People under the age of 25 years by the South-West Content Awards, George is playing a key role in shaping the social media marketing strategies across Clearly’s portfolio of clients.
Megan Phillips is Clearly’s very first Intern. Currently in her second year of a degree in Media & Communication at Bath Spa University, Megan is working with us on a six-month paid placement and is supporting a number of clients with their digital marketing, research, media and content creation.
Paul MacKenzie-Cummins, Founder & Managing Director at Clearly, said: “The last 12 months have been especially challenging both for the clients we support and the PR industry itself.
Key to Clearly’s ability to overcome the many obstacles faced last year was the strength of the team we have, and that enabled us to bounce-back quickly and report steady month-on-month growth during the second half of 2020.
“2021 has started incredibly well for the business, with January being our third highest billing month in our seven-year history. The outstanding work of the team last year has continued into this and that has led to the creation of these four new positions.
“Olivia, Ruby, George and Megan have proven themselves to be invaluable members of an already excellent team. Their obvious passion for all things media and content combined with the skills they already have and are enhancing, means they are set to make a huge impact on the continued growth of the business over the next 18 months and beyond.”
Clearly has also applied and been approved for the UK Government’s Kickstart Scheme, which will see the agency create three new positions for young people aged 16-24 years old. This falls under one of Clearly’s four commitments as part of its Environmental & Social Governance policy (ESG) – to play its part in tackling youth unemployment.*
Additional new hires are planned throughout 2021, with each vacancy advertised on Clearly’s Careers page. We’re always interested in hearing from talented PRs and Creatives, so please feel free to contact Paul on email@example.com
*Young people up to the age of 24 years old accounted for 63% of the 700,000 jobs lost in the last 12 months. The impact of this on the future economy could potentially be huge. If you’re an employer, please consider the Kickstart Scheme. You can onboard someone with their whole career ahead of them who wants to learn, wants to work hard, and wants (and could) become an invaluable member of your workforce.
