Her role at MediaCityUK-based Down At The Social will support MD Daisy Whitehouse with business development, and she will also lead the majority of the agency’s PR and social accounts including Flint + Flint skincare, the Realm portfolio of shopping outlets and Manchester Pride.

She said: “As well as having a strong reputation for consumer PR, Down At The Social is a creative and hard working agency and the quality of personnel is very high.

“I’ve seen a growth in demand over the last few years’ for traditional PR and content campaigns and this is an exciting time to join an up-and-coming agency with such a firm belief in offering quality and creativity in PR, social and marketing.”

MD Whitehouse added: “Alison’s extensive PR sector experience and PR business management expertise is a great asset to the agency and reflects our commitment to growth over the next few years. I think she will be the perfect addition to our ever growing team.”
